THE LITTLE MERMAID Star Halle Bailey Sports Red Braids & A Familiar Outfit In New Set Photos

Some more photos from the set of Disney's live-action The Little Mermaid movie have found their way online, and this time star Halle Bailey is looking a lot more like the Ariel we know and love...

Disney's live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid is now filming in Italy, and we recently got a first glimpse of star Halle Bailey as Ariel sporting what appeared to be some kind of wetsuit. Now, some far more revealing set photos have been shared online, and they see the actress don a look that should be more familiar to fans of the animated classic.

While it wasn't immediately clear from the blurry snaps, Bailey is indeed sporting red (well, auburn) locks here, and she's also ditched the diving gear for the burlap dress Ariel wears when she first makes her way to dry land in the original.

Based on what we've seen so far, director Rob Marshall will be taking a few liberties with the story, but these photos should assuage concerns that he's planning to ditch everything from the 1989 movie.

Bailey stars alongside Jonah-Hauer King as Prince Eric, Melissa McCarthy as Ursula, Javier Bardem as King Triton, Jacob Tremblay as Flounder, Daveed Diggs as Sebastian, and Awkwafina as Scuttle.

The Little Mermaid will feature music from the animated classic as well as four new songs. Lin-Manuel Miranda, who previously worked with director Rob Marshall on Mary Poppins Returns, will also compose original music for Mermaid along with Alan Menken.
