The director of The Little Mermaid encouraged Halle Bailey to bring a personal style to the character Ariel, making fans extremely angry.
There are still issues surrounding The Little Mermaid live action work with the most drama in recent times. Recently, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Halle Bailey revealed that The Little Mermaid director encouraged her to create Ariel based on her personal style, instead of being tied to the mermaid image in the version. cartoon.
“He was amazing at allowing me to put personality into the character. For example the hairstyle, red hair with braids is something special to me. So is the outfit. I’m grateful to be able to combine myself with the character,” said Halley Bailey.
The fact that Halle Bailey has the right to personalize Ariel is a sign that Disney is quite open to refreshing the character’s image. That means The Little Mernaid will have some differences with the classic cartoon. The Little Mermaid is slated for release in May 2023.
However, that thought was completely contrary to the fans’ wishes, they wanted to see a beautiful Ariel come out, the familiar frames were not a mermaid named Ariel but there was no such thing. A little bit related to the character that has been associated with many people’s childhood (from both appearance to personality).
Previously, the trailer of The Little Mermaid live action received 1.1 million likes right after its release and the number has increased to more than 3 million after just a few days. This is not too difficult to understand when Disney itself demolished a monument of itself, arbitrarily changed Ariel’s image (when casting a black actor in the film and successfully ruined the original) only to the hearts of the “racial” rights. But they forget that who pays the theater to see their work and also directly contributes to the success of a movie.
In addition, Rachel Zegler’s controversial statements when defending Halle Bailey also upset many fans when her own work Snow While was also rejected by the audience, let alone The Little Mermaid live action.
