A new featurette, “A World Reimagined,” from Disney’s The Little Mermaid, which provides an exclusive look at the live-action reimaging of the studio’s animated musical classic, has been unveiled. "She's hilarious and terrifying," Awkwafina says about Melissa McCarthy, who plays the sinister Ursula. Ariel is played by Halle Bailey who shows off her vocal chops in the featurette.

"We got a deal?" Ursula asks Ariel in the video. When she doesn't get an answer, Ursula adds, "I mean, I just gave you the premium package, kid."
Halle Bailey is also shown recording the track 'Part of Your World (Reprise),' which Ariel sings after saving Prince Eric from drowning. "Halle Bailey, when she sang for us, it was so emotional," says director Rob Marshall. "She set the bar, and no one ever surpassed it."
The Little Mermaid is the beloved story of Ariel, a beautiful and spirited young mermaid with a thirst for adventure. The youngest of King Triton’s daughters and the most defiant, Ariel longs to find out more about the world beyond the sea and, while visiting the surface, falls for the dashing Prince Eric. While mermaids are forbidden to interact with humans, Ariel must follow her heart. She makes a deal with the evil sea witch, Ursula, which gives her a chance to experience life on land but ultimately places her life – and her father’s crown – in jeopardy.
The film stars singer and actress Halle Bailey as Ariel; Jonah Hauer-King as Prince Eric; Tony Award winner Daveed Diggs as the voice of Sebastian; Awkwafina as the voice of Scuttle; Jacob Tremblay as the voice of Flounder; Noma Dumezweni as Queen Selina; Art Malik as Sir Grimsby; with Oscar-winner Javier Bardem as King Triton; and two-time Academy Award nominee Melissa McCarthy as Ursula.
The Little Mermaid, helmed by visionary filmmaker Rob Marshall, opens exclusively in theatres nationwide on May 26, 2023.
