Halle Bailey Creates Disney Magic for Little Princess at Disney World. Halle Bailey made one young Little Mermaid fan’s day during a trip to Disney World.
On Thursday, Bailey, 22, shared several videos on her Instagram Story from a trip to Walt Disney World in Florida, where she was the Disney Dreamers Academy’s Celebrity Ambassador, including one clip that showed her sharing a long embrace with a young girl who appeared to recognize her for her upcoming role as Ariel in Disney’s live-action reimagining of The Little Mermaid.
“Met this beautiful baby, Mila Rose who made me cry, ” Bailey wrote in a caption, recapping her trip to the theme park. “She just hugged me so tight .”
“You’re so pretty,” Bailey told the girl in the video as they hugged. “Ariel’s her favorite,” someone off-camera said.
“Really? You’re so beautiful and sweet, what’s her name? Mila?” Bailey said in the video. “So sweet. Mila, do you want to smile for the camera? Take a picture?”
Bailey, who has spoken about how she hopes her casting as Ariel may impact children, shared in a recent interview with Edition Modern Luxury that she spent as many as 13 hours a day filming scenes in the water. At the same time, on set in London for the upcoming film.
“I pushed myself as far as I’ve ever pushed myself in life,” Bailey said. “And I feel like the message from her was to know that you’ve always had it in you.”
Bailey, who also revealed that she first watched Disney’s 1989 original The Little Mermaid around age 5, said she is “really excited for my version of the film” after the studio made changes to ensure the character’s motivation to leave the ocean doesn’t just involve falling in love.
