Stellar Performances

Critics got to see a preview of Disney’s upcoming live-action version of The Little Mermaid starring Halle Bailey before it opens in theaters around the world.

With its stunning visuals, exceptional cast, and captivating musical numbers, this film is a must-see for anyone who loves a good fairy tale.

Disney recently gave viewers a preview of Melissa McCarthy performing “Poor Unfortunate Souls” as Ursula at CinemaCon. Four original songs are included on the soundtrack to the movie, which was created by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Alan Menken.

Along with Bailey and McCarthy, the cast also includes Noma Dumezweni as Queen Selina, Jonah Hauer-King as Prince Eric, Jacob Tremblay as Flounder, Daveed Diggs as Sebastian, and Awkwafina as Scuttle. Javier Bardem plays King Triton.

Bailey’s portrayal as Ariel has received extremely excellent initial reviews for the movie. The majority of the audience agreed that the cast’s performance stood out the most, which is why critics dubbed Bailey “extraordinary.”

The performances were excellent, but one reviewer said of Bailey: “Bailey is great, McCarthy rules, the songs work but it just feels so unnecessary.” Another said the movie looks “visually rough” to maintain the under-the-sea setting, but praised Bailey for her “gorgeous singing and empathetic charm.”

On May 26, The Little Mermaid makes its debut.
