A Film To Inspire
The new “Little Mermaid” is an adaptation of the 1989 animated feature of the same name. Bailey’s version of the classic debuts in theaters on Friday.
For many, the new adaptation is an ode to Black excellence and a guide for young Black girls.
“I want the little girl in me and the little girls just like me who are watching to know that they’re special and that they should be a princess in every single way,” Bailey said in an August 2022 interview with Variety.
During the premiere, Halle told The Hollywood Reporter she was honored to be at the event.
“I’m so grateful … and I can’t wait for everyone to see it. I love how fearless and strong Ariel is,” Bailey said.
