Ever since it was announced that Disney's next live-action remake would be The Little Mermaid and ever since we learned that stars like Melissa McCarthy, Halle Bailey, Javier Bardem and more would lead the film, we've been dying for this movie to come out. And according to McCarthy (who plays Ursula), we should especially look forward to the singing from 22-year-old Bailey (Ariel).
In a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live, McCarthy was asked by a fan if she could spill any details on the film, to which she jokingly said, “First, I’ll say I’ll be killed for anything I say.” However, when asked about Bailey's performance as Ariel, McCarthy recounted a recent moment from the set, saying, “We were on set and they just started playing Halle’s version of the song. I had a truly, really...not weird reaction, just overwhelming. It’s so beautiful and it’s from such a—it’s just different. That girl has got roots down and she sings from her heart. When I heard it, there were like seven of us that just burst out crying because we had not heard it.”
