    The First Set Pictures Of Ariel And Prince Eric On The "Little Mermaid" Live-Action Set Are Here, People

    🎢 What would I pay to spend a day warm on the sand? 🎡

    It's time to fish the gossip: The first pics of Halle Bailey as Ariel in the Disney live-action Little Mermaid movie have surfaced.

    If you need a quick re-fisher, Halle Bailey β€” of Chloe x Halle fame β€” will be playing the lead, with Melissa McCarthy as Ursula, Daveed Diggs as Sebastian, and Awkwafina as Scuttle rounding out the cast.

    As for Prince Eric, he'll be played by Jonah Hauer-King, whom you might recognize from The Last Photograph or the 2017 TV miniseries version of Little Women.

    Well, pics of Halle and Jonah finally emerged this week showing them (seemingly) rehearsing in Sardinia, Italy β€” complete with mermaid tail.

    It sure looks like they're having a merry time!

    Personally, I would ~plaice~ my bets on this being the scene where Ariel rescues Eric after the shipwreck.
