After announcing Halle Bailey as the new Ariel of "The Little Mermaid," a major controversy erupted over Disney's decision for the protagonist.
Disney's original "Little Mermaid" premiered in 1989 , based on Hans Christian Andersen's short story by Ron Clements and John Musker. At that time, it was the only film in history whose world premiere date spanned 800 days, more than two years, between the Avant Premiere and its Japanese premiere in January 1991. It was one of the most popular animated films and acclaimed in the history of the company.
It is the 28th film in the animated feature film canon of The Walt Disney Company and in the list of Walt Disney classics, in addition, it became a success resulting in a new golden age at Disney , which was followed by great hits like "Beauty and the Beast", "Aladdin", and "The Lion King".
Now, 30 years after the great success of this animated story, and going with its line to recreate the animated classics, Disney has decided to launch its live-action version of this classic story. However, unlike the rest of the live-action princesses , the new Ariel from "The Little Mermaid" is not very happy to the fans, because it has chosen an actress very different from the Ariel that so popular and iconic became between the Disney princesses .
