Halle Bailey I am happy to be a part of your world.
In an exclusive interview with E! The news at the D23 Expo, Haley shared her feelings about playing Ariel in the new version of Disney the little Mermaid. The singer said, visibly, “I’m so excited for this movie. You know being here today is so surreal. I’m a fan of all the other projects and the fact that I’m going to be a part of something like this. It’s amazing.”
The movie is already causing quite a stir ahead of its release next year, and she feels the pressure is on. “I definitely think that because I love this movie so much, and I cherish it since I was a little girl, I put a little pressure on myself,” she said. “Just because I want to convey all the feelings I saw when I was a little girl.”
Now that she’s grown up, that little girl has turned into the little mermaid, saying she gave her everything. Haley noted, “Knowing that this gave me my all and gave 110 percent on everything in this movie, I’m so proud of myself.”
And it should be after watching the first teaser for the movie at a Disney event. Her sweet reaction was all of us: “Wow, it’s really good,” said the 22-year-old.
