‘The Little Mermaid’ is here!
Disney‘s reimagining of the beloved tale makes history with Halle Bailey in the lead role of Ariel – signifying the first time the character has been portrayed by a Black woman.
The film at large, which easily serves as one of the year’s most eagerly anticipated offerings, celebrates diversity in all its forms and is already being hailed a game-changing ahead of its global release on May 26.
That Grape Juice was on-hand at the London premiere of ‘The Little Mermaid’ and caught up with Bailey, as well as the film’s cast such as Jonah Hauer-King, Daveed Diggs, and more. All of whom spoke about the seismic impact of this version of the classic narrative.
