Just the other day I was talking to my baby sister, and she showed me a picture of Princess Tiana that she had colored. In her sweet voice she said, “Sissy, I colored Tiana like me. She looks like me."
This week Disney announced that the beautiful Halle Bailey would be playing Ariel in the new adaptation of the classic, fan favorite film, “The Little Mermaid.” Halle Bailey plays Sky on the Freeform television series, “Grown-ish,” but she is also recognized for her beautiful voice in the singing duo ChloexHalle.
In 2015, Disney began making plans for the remake of its' 1998 classic film, Mulan, in live-action. They hired on Niki Caro- director of The Zookeeper's Wife (2015)- and the plan was skyrocketed into reality.
When I first heard news that the remake would not include the iconic musical numbers from my childhood, I was massively disappointed. I pretty much wrote off the upcoming film as a flop. Then, this year, I heard news that the Eddie Murphy's hilarious and memorable character, Mushu, would be not be making an appearance either. I would have completely shunned the film from my radar, but I decided to do a little digging.
