Halle Bailey shares photo from live-action 'The Little Mermaid' to reveal filming has wrapped

Fans of Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” are one step closer to watching its live-action reboot.

Star Halle Bailey, who plays Ariel in the upcoming adaptation, confirmed that filming just wrapped.

Taking to Instagram on Monday to share a sunset photo of her lounging at the beach while in costume, the singer reflected on starring in her first breakout role.

“And just like that..that’s a wrap,” Bailey remarked. “After auditioning for this film when i was 18 just about to turn 19 , to now finishing filming through a pandemic when i turned 21 ..we have finally made it.”

“I feel so grateful to have experienced this film in all of its glory..it has been the toughest experience being away from everything and everyone i’ve ever known, to feeling self doubt/ loneliness, but also feeling such freedom and perseverance as i’ve reached the end,” the Chloe x Halle singer continued. “This experience has made me so much stronger than i ever thought i could be.”
