    Flop. I’m black & i don’t want to see a black little mermaid & especialy halle bailey pistoned beyonce lion king. Why they don’t try to do right black movie like black panther. the only good cast is Melissa McCarthy. SO sad for all children who see the anime version.

    • Livelife&Learn&Forgive September 12, 2021

      Same they lead isn’t that pretty to play Ariel. She looks like an alien or get a prettier Caramel girl for the lead. But you know why they didn’t choose white cause then they will call it being racist etc.

    I think it’s absolutely RIDICULOUS that people think this is a win for minorities. What Hollywood should be doing is creating original characters of colour, not giving us crumbs by turning existing iconic characters into other ethnicities and expect us to lick massa’s boots in gratitude. How come it’s always the ginger characters that get it too? Why can’t they have representation? So dumb. Make new black characters. Invest in black story tellers. They couldn’t even give her a red wig like…what?! She would’ve look amazing with some red twists or braids but whatever…these remakes are trash anyway. Haven’t seen a good one yet.

    • marilyn monh-O-E (Da Real DIVA 👠) September 12, 2021

      Well said 👏🏼 Will they casting a white woman for chun li? Oh hell no. Disney had been f****** with the original characters. They are going down💅🏿

      • ToxicThrill September 12, 2021

  9. nickiLOVESrapists September 12, 2021

    If they hire someone white, the studio has too listen to TONS of complaints. If they hire someone black, they have to listen to TONS complaints. Whites always complain, and guess what, blacks ALWAYS complain. Studios can’t win. They are either racist or woke, depending on the complainer.

    Oh, and this create new characters NONSENSE…They do create NEW characters and no one cares. EVER.

    Halle berry is 55 years old and the last person I would ever picture playing aerial!!!! The little mermaid is one of my favorite movies of all time I’ve seen it a lot ever since my mom first brought the vhs version home when it first came out. I just don’t get this.
