Disney has found its Ariel for its live-action remake of “The Little Mermaid.” Actress and singer Halle Bailey will star in Rob Marshall’s film as the lead Ariel, the studio announced Wednesday.

Bailey is one half of the R&B duo Chloe x Halle and has also starred in episodes of “Grown-ish.” She’ll also star opposite Melissa McCarthy, who is in talks to play the sea witch Ursula. Most people would know Halle from the time she and her sister Chloe sang “America the Beautiful” at this year’s Super Bowl.
