He live action of The little Mermaid It has caused great expectations among Disney fans both for its cast and for the apparent changes that there will be in the plot.
In fact, during an interview, Halle Bailey, who plays Ariel, assured that one of the biggest changes that the film will have is the fact that Ariel will not sacrifice her voice to be with Prince Eric.
In an interview for Edition Magazine, Halle revealed that this version of The little Mermaid It will not only present changes in the characters, but also in the story, since we will meet an Ariel who, since she was a child, looks for a way to become human and later ends up in love with Eric, a human prince.
Halle stated that this version will not focus on the classic love story between the mermaid and the prince, but on Ariel’s dreams, freedom and goals.
I’m very excited for my version of the movie because we’ve definitely changed that perspective that she only wants to leave the ocean for a guy, it’s so much bigger than that. It’s about herself, her purpose, her freedom, her life and what she wants.
The actress also applauded that Disney is turning their stories around, making the princesses true warriors, independent and full of dreams.
On the other hand, there are already those who criticize the aforementioned change in the plot, because they believe that it detracts from the essence of the original story.
