Halle Bailey of Chloe x Halle gets to be part of the Disney world because she's officially been cast as Ariel in the live-action "Little Mermaid"!

Halle has the voice of an angel. She is perfect for the vocal requirements of the part. But also hi we have another woman of color in the Disney princess club! Obviously, Ariel was traditionally white but I'm ok with breaking tradition for a little representation.

She joins a cast that includes Awkwafina and Jacob Tremblay, while Melissa McCarthy is in talks to play Ursula. Next up: we need a strong jaw for whoever is playing Prince Eric.

Get familiar with Halle's R&B perfection below.
