Grown-Ish star Halle Bailey has opened up about her excitement to play Disney princess, Ariel, in the upcoming live-action movie.
"It means so much to me," Halle, 19, to ET. "I feel very honored and really grateful for the opportunity."
"Ariel was one of my favorite princesses growing up so it's a dream come true," she added with a gleaming smile. "I'm very excited and happy."
Her sister also had her back:
"My sister is so incredibly talented and I can't wait for the world to see what I see every single day," Chloe said. "I am just so proud of her. It's going to be really good."
After the news was announced about Halle's new role, Twitter erupted with many angry comments that a young Black woman was playing Ariel - but Black Twitter had her back and silenced the trolls. Usually when there's this kind of racist backlash, the Black community shows up and shows out.
The ratings are guaranteed to be a success!
