Who Is In The Cast of “The Little Mermaid” live-Action?
The fantastic cast has got the fans surprised. You may have already known who is in the cast but when the trailer dropped, we were sure that the rumours were ultimately true. So, “The Little Mermaid” live-action cast includes Halle Bailey as the lead of the classic tale, Ariel. To be her voice for the “The Little Mermaid” live-action, Jodi Benson has excelled in it.
Once the trailer was dropped, Benson even praised Halle for her performance and said, “Halle, you were absolutely amazing! I’m SO proud of you and your beautiful performance as Ariel.”
As a matter of fact, Halle even explained her modern take on the role of Ariel to STYLECASTER in January 2022 and said, “I think everyone will be pleasantly surprised by some updates of the themes of the film. More so on Ariel’s side of women empowerment and taking her power back.”
While talking about the most emotional scene, she said, “It was three days of intense being all over the place. I was crying the whole time because I was just like, ‘What the heck?’ We’re all connected to that song,”
Even Awkwafina will be voicing the gender-swapped Scuttle, the seagull who will voice for Ariel when she goes voiceless. Even Lin-Manuel and Rob Marshall are in the cast.
Can you imagine who is playing Ursula? Well, it is none other than the very famous Oscar nominee Melissa McCarthy. She once told People Magazine, “I have such an affection for Ursula. I know she’s the villain, but I’ve just always kind of been like, ‘Oh my god.’ I mean, she’s kind of delicious to play.”
But who will be Eric? Initially, it was rumoured to be Harry Styles. But keeping aside all of these rumours, it is actually going to be Jonah Hauer-King. And for Sebastian, it will be Daveed Diggs. Jude Akuwudike will be Grimsby, the loyal butler of Eric. Other cast members are Noma Dumezweni for the role of Carlotta, Eric’s housekeeper, Lorena Andrea and Kajsa Mohammad for the respective characters Perla and Karina. On the other hand, Jessica Alexander, Russell Balogh, Adrian Christopher and Emily Coates are going to be seen in undisclosed roles. We think Simon Ashley will also be in the film though it hasn’t been confirmed.
