The live-action film will revolve around Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale of a mermaid called Ariel who wishes to be human after she falls in love with a prince. Congratulations @chloexhalle on this amazing opportunity, we can’t wait to see what you do!” she tweeted. The film, which will begin production in early 2020, will feature songs from the 1989 animated classic by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, as well as new songs by Menken and Miranda. “In case you needed a reminder… Halles get it DONE. Awkwafina and Jacob Tremblay are already on board the project while Melissa McCarthy is in talks to play the antagonist, Ursula, the sea witch. #TheLittleMermaid #HalleBailey pic.twitter.com/z0Rik2nxRe
