“The Little Mermaid” is a live-action reboot of Disney’s 1989 Oscar-winning animated film, which is based on the fairytale by Hans Christian Andersen. Starring Halle Bailey as the titular mermaid, the film follows her journey from life under the sea to finding love on land. “The Little Mermaid” also stars Melissa McCarthy as Ursula, Daveed Diggs as Sebastian and Jonah Hauer-King as Prince Eric.

Bailey said she was thrilled to dive into the title role and the gravity of the moment was not lost on the young star."This moment means everything to me. I feel so inspired and grateful and honored," said Bailey.

She wore a metallic silver/blue mermaid-inspired gown that looked like liquid metal.
