THE LITTLE MERMAID Set Photos Reveal First Look At Halle Bailey Suited Up As The Iconic Disney Character

Set photos from The Little Mermaid have found their way online, offering a first look at Halle Bailey as Ariel and Jonah Hauer-King as Prince Eric. However, it seems some big changes are being made!

The first photos from the Italian set of The Little Mermaid have found their way online, and we have a lot to discuss after taking a closer look at these (you can check them out over at Mail Online).

Halle Bailey can be seen on the shore alongside Jonah Hauer-King's Eric, but she appears to be wearing something along the lines of a modified diving suit. That's quite a departure from the original animated feature, though we weren't expecting the actress to don a bikini made from seashells! 

Based on what Eric is wearing, it also appears the movie will take place in the present day, and that almost certainly means we can expect a very different take on this story when The Little Mermaid is released. As of right now, we're still not entirely sure when that will be or if this is one of those original features being produced specifically for Disney+ like Peter Pan and Wendy.

While some of Disney's live-action adaptations have been direct retellings, it seems some liberties are being taken by director Rob Marshall as he looks to put a fresh spin on the story.

Halle Bailey, Jonah Hauer-King, Javier Bardem, Melissa McCarthy, Daveed Diggs, Jacob Tremblay, and Awkwafina star in The Little Mermaid, while Alan Menken is returning to work on the music.
