Disney’s live-action Little Mermaid will be a musical journey!
Composer Alan Menken confirms that all the songs for Disney’s most anticipated live-action movie Little Mermaid are all recorded including four new songs as well.
A live-action retelling of the famous Little Mermaid was all set to hit theatres next year but due to the coronavirus outbreak, the production of the film was halted earlier this month.
However, the shooting of the film was scheduled for next month at Pinewood studios but right now due to the pandemic it seems the scheduling will have to be pushed forward.
During a live stream, Alan Menken confirmed that songs are all recorded and ready to get used including the four new songs for the upcoming live-action of the Little Mermaid.
Halle Bailey is all set to play the beautiful Ariel for Disney’s live-action version of the classic animated movie ‘The Little Mermaid.’ The supporting cast featuring Melissa McCarthy, Javier Bardem, Awkwafina, and Daveed Diggs.
Halle Bailey is known for singing alongside her sister Chloe and the duo is known as Chloe x Halle. Additionally both the sisters starred in 2006’s ‘Last Holiday’ and currently playing the characters of Jazlyn and Skylar on Grown-ish. Disney venture will be the first for Halle Bailey for not acting alongside her sister Chloe in a movie.
However, Disney is taking a diverse route to this story in the live-action where its animated version is played by the white women with a rebellious attitude. She sets out to the human world and marries a human, Prince Eric. But this time Ariel in the Live-action version is the black woman which shows how Disney is adjusting and bringing the lovely facets of life into their storytelling.
