Halle Bailey is the Best Ariel Possible

(2022) This article is an AI generated accumulation of various online texts. I’ve happily grown to ignore and divest from Disney/Hollywood because they can’t ever be redeemed, corrected, improved, or justified. I don’t applaud them for anything, nor do I want their representation any longer. However, this article saves me time and gets the job done of looking at this topic from a broader perspective. Not everyone is as radical as me. And if Black children are happy to see a Black Mermaid on screen then so am I. And what Black children think, is all that matters here.

A black actress playing Ariel in Disney’s upcoming live action “The Little Mermaid” would have been unthinkable even five years ago. But Halle Bailey is the perfect choice for the role. She’s a talented singer and actress, with a star-making turn in the Freeform series “Grown-ish” already under her belt. She has the youth and energy that Ariel requires, and, perhaps most importantly, the ability to convey the wide-eyed wonder and joy that is at the heart of the character.

1. Halle Bailey is a Black girl, and Black Mermaid Stories Have Existed for Centuries

Halle Bailey is a black girl, and she should be playing a black character. This is not a controversial statement, it is a simple statement of fact. There are many black girls who would be perfect for the role of The Little Mermaid, but Halle Bailey is the best choice. Halle Bailey is a talented actress and singer, and she has the perfect look for the role. She is also a black girl, which is important. It is important that black girls see themselves represented on screen. It is important that they see themselves as the heroes of their own stories. The Little Mermaid is a story about a black girl who is different from everyone else. She is special and unique, and she deserves to be represented on screen. Halle Bailey is the perfect choice for the role, and she will inspire girls of all colors to be themselves.

Note: Though The Little Mermaid is not about a Black girl, I let the AI error stay in because it’s a cool error if I do say so myself. Black Mermaids pre-date Disney and The Litter Mermaid. So maybe that’s what AI was picking up on.

2. Disney has a history of whitewashing

When news spread that Halle Bailey, a black actress, had been cast to play Ariel in the upcoming live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid, some people were quick to point out that Disney has a history of whitewashing. The thing is, Disney has always had a bit of a race problem. Their most iconic princess, Snow White, is not only white but has impossibly pale skin. In more recent decades, Disney has tried to diversify its princess lineup, but there has been criticism that these princesses still fall into stereotype ( Mulan was praised for being a strong and independent woman, but she was still pigeonholed as the “exotic” princess). The casting of Halle Bailey as Ariel is a step in the right direction, but it’s just one step. What Disney needs to do is diversify its storytellers and create more inclusive stories. For too long, Disney has been the gatekeeper of what stories get told and how they’re told. That needs to change. If Disney wants to move forward, it needs to give more people of color the opportunity to tell their own stories. Halle Bailey is a step in the right direction, but Disney needs to do more if it wants to truly be inclusive.

Bailey is the perfect choice for the role of Ariel and she is sure to make the character her own.

5. She will help to diversify the Disney Princess lineup.

Halle Bailey is the perfect choice for The Little Mermaid because she is a black woman who can help to diversify the Disney Princess lineup. When The Little Mermaid was first released in 1989, it was criticized for its lack of diversity. The film was set in a fictional kingdom called Atlantica, which was populated by white mermaids and humans. In recent years, Disney has made a concerted effort to diversify its princess lineup. The 2016 film Moana featured the studio’s first Polynesian princess, and the 2018 film Black Panther introduced its first black princess, Shuri. Bailey’s casting as Ariel is a continuation of this trend, and it is a step in the right direction. The Little Mermaid is one of the most iconic Disney Princess films, and it is time for its princess to reflect the diversity of the world we live in. Bailey is a talented young actress, and she is sure to bring her own unique take to the role of Ariel.

6. She will inspire little girls who look like her.

Bailey is the perfect choice for the role. Firstly, Bailey is an immensely talented singer. Her vocals, both solo and as part of her R&B duo Chloe x Halle, are beautiful, soulful and powerful. She has the vocal range to tackle Ariel’s songs, which are some of the most iconic and well-loved in Disney’s catalogue. Secondly, Bailey is a gorgeous woman with a beautiful, distinctive face. She has the same wide eyes and full lips as Ariel, and her natural beauty means that she won’t require hours in the makeup chair to achieve the mermaid look. Thirdly, and most importantly, Bailey is a black woman, and her casting will inspire little girls who look like her. For too long, Hollywood has failed to represent black women properly. Often, when a black woman is cast in a movie or TV show, she is relegated to the role of best friend or maid. Bailey’s casting as Ariel shows that black women can be the stars of mainstream movies, and that they can play any role, not just ones that are stereotyped or limited.

7. She will help to make The Little Mermaid a more inclusive movie.

It’s official: Halle Bailey is The Little Mermaid. The Internet has been abuzz with excitement, with many people hailing Bailey as the perfect choice for the iconic role. And Bailey is certainly no stranger to breaking barriers. She is one half of the R&B duo Chloe x Halle, who have been making waves in the music industry since they were signed by Beyoncé to her label. Their debut album, The Kids Are Alright, was released to critical acclaim last year and has since garnered them a Grammy nomination. Now, Bailey is set to make history again as the first black woman to play The Little Mermaid in a live-action movie. It’s a role that she is more than qualified for, and one that she is sure to excel in. But beyond her impressive credentials, what makes Bailey the perfect choice for The Little Mermaid is the fact that she will help to make the movie a more realistic one. For too long, Hollywood has been dominated by white male and white female voices. But thanks to trailblazers like Bailey, that is starting to change. By casting her in The Little Mermaid, Disney is sending a clear message that they are committed to increasing representation on the big screen. And it’s not just black girls who will benefit from seeing someone like Bailey in the lead role. It’s all girls. For generations, little girls have looked up to Ariel as a role model. She is strong, independent, and fearless. She is a risk-taker and a dreamer. She is the epitome of girl power. But until now, she has also been a white, thin, able-bodied princess. By casting Bailey as Ariel, Disney is allowing girls of all colors and sizes to see themselves in the character. And that is truly priceless. In a time when the world is becoming increasingly divided, we need more stories that bring us together. Stories that show us that, despite our differences, we are all human. Stories that remind us of the power of kindness, compassion, and love. The Little Mermaid has always been a beautiful story, but with Bailey in the lead role, it has the potential to be even more special. It has the potential to be a game-changer.

The actress and singer Halle Bailey is the perfect choice for the role of Ariel in the upcoming live action adaptation of The Little Mermaid. She has the vocal chops to perform the iconic songs from the film, the acting chops to convey the wide-eyed innocence and curiosity of her character, and the physicality to convey the grace and power of Ariel. She is a rising star with a bright future, and she will no doubt bring new life to this classic character. ———–


Then they gonna erroneously throw the word woke in there because they have a bunch of drool and bed bugs in the place where their brain is supposed to be. They can’t even begin to understand the true meaning of the word woke because their existence is nothing but a constant nightmare to all living things.

Ole’ wretched headed A wasted wacists.

If mermaids were real, they would have destroyed them too just like they have destroyed all forms of life.

Don’t be thinking they’re mad about a Black mermaid. That’s just a cover up. They’re mad because they are the pollutants, toxins, viruses and roaches of the sea. A Black mermaid reminds them of what they are.

My Black @ss is mad because all these pages from Disney to whatever have allowed all that hate speech to stand for 4 entire years.

My Black @ss is also mad because no celebrities have forcefully shamed and shunned these racists, like how they always do Black people, and like how they did Will Smith.

I don’t care what sea trash thinks about me. The problem is…they have been allowed to run rabid with no accountability. They have been allowed to grow in power and stay emboldened and thus continue dangerous, violent cycles of global anti-blackness which too many lives are lost to.

I don’t have the power, money, resources or platform to say things Disney should or take action that YouTube, FB, etc should take against hate speech, all I got is…what’s on my mind & my voice, and that’s what I’ll use.
