‘The Little Mermaid’: See more Halle Bailey movies and TV shows
Halle Bailey, one-half of the Grammy-nominated R&B duo Chloe x Halle is catching the eyes of industry bigwigs. But while you may think that is Beyonce and crew, there’s a surprise. The girl is a whole lot more than music. Halle has now caught the eye of Hollywood, leaving fans everywhere eager for her next move.
Let’s take a look into what she has in store beyond the song stage and over to the silver screen!
Halle Bailey is already set to make a splash in the eagerly awaited live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid. Social media has been ablaze for months about her turn as Ariel. She has also been the center of debate as to whether she should have even been cast.
Her turn as Ariel continues to spark a controversial reaction among some individuals, leading to racist criticism and backlash. However, director Rob Marshall has emphasized that Bailey earned the role based on her merit and talent, particularly recognizing her performance as part of Chloe x Halle.
Despite the controversy, Bailey has responded to the criticism with grace and resilience. She acknowledged the backlash but maintained her focus on the positive aspects of the opportunity, highlighting the changes made to Ariel’s origin story in the film.
Various media outlets and public figures, including Trevor Noah, have voiced support for Bailey and criticized the racist backlash, highlighting the importance of embracing diversity in film and challenging discriminatory attitudes.
As far as we are concerned, Bailey’s casting represents a significant step towards increased diversity and representation in Hollywood, with her portrayal as Ariel bringing a fresh and inclusive perspective to the beloved character.
But there’s more to Halle Bailey than just her mesmerizing on-screen performances. This multi-talented dynamo is not just about hogging the spotlight; she’s all set to dominate the world behind the scenes as well. Halle has proven herself as a powerhouse in the realm of producing, demonstrating she’s not hesitant to take the reins.
With her sharp narrative eye and a passion for amplifying diverse voices, Halle is marking her territory as a formidable force in the industry. Make way, Spielberg; there’s a new commander in town, and she’s prepared to set the screen ablaze. But Halle’s talents don’t stop at producing. She has her sights set on the stars and beyond.
This emerging superstar has shown interest in discovering other facets of the entertainment industry, from penning her own music to directing her own projects. It’s as if she’s saying, ‘Why settle for being a triple threat when I can be a quadruple threat?’ We can only dream about the cinematic brilliance Halle will unfurl upon the world as she continues to push boundaries and shatter stereotypes.
There is only so much that can be said for what the young starlet has up her sleeve as a result of keeping so much close to her circle. But for all we can see and as far as we are concerned, Halle Bailey is exactly where she’s supposed to be and making her way as such. More roles and recognition are exactly what we love to cover.
