R&B singer Halle Bailey is set to make her feature film acting debut as the star of Disney's The Little Mermaid remake. Of course, the spots that still need to be filled are those for Sebastian the crab; King Triton, Ariel's overbearing father; Prince Eric, Ariel's love interest; Grimsby, Eric's butler of sorts; and Chef Louis, a snooty and fish-hating gourmand.
Bailey will join Jacob Tremblay and Awkwafina in the film.

The pair rose to fame after posting YouTube covers of Beyoncé before the superstar discovered them and signed them to her record label.
You may know Halle Bailey from her role as Sky on Grown-ish and from musical duo, Chloe X Halle, with her sister Chloe Bailey.
She accompanied the post with the caption "I'M URSULA".
Has Halle Bailey acted before? And that wouldn't be altogether surprising considering she has not starred in any major roles to date.
It isn't as though Bailey is entering completely new territory though, as she's appeared on several episodes of the series Black-ish, starring as Sky Forster.
Which other stars will be joining Halle in the live-action film has yet to be confirmed, but ET has learned that Melissa McCarthy is in very early talks to play Ursula.
It looks as if the USA comedian has competition though as Lizzo has already given the singing role her best shot, posting a video of herself singing Poor Unfortunate Souls on Twitter.
Production on the film will begin in 2020.
Walt Disney Studios on Wednesday took to Twitter to announce Halle's casting in the project.
