Ariel The Little Mermaid has a unique identity that is easily recognizable. In fact, the thing that comes to mind when hearing Ariel's name is this identity. What is that? Yes, Ariel's hair color. Her striking red hair color is able to make the audience remember her. Not only that, the body shapes of Ariel herself, that has tails and the volumized hair can even be recognized even if it doesn’t involve any color. We can name it “Ariel” even though all we can see is just the little mermaid silhouette.
Before appearing in the film, The Little Mermaid appeared in the sequel “Splash”. Based on the original film, from the 1984 version of Splash, The Little Mermaid appears with blonde hair. Disney also conveyed through their official blog that, in fact, the red color in Ariel's The Little Mermaid's hair was chosen by Disney so that Ariel could be distinguished from The Little Mermaid that appeared in Splash in 1984. Another reason that is delivered by Disney is that red is the complementary color of the green.
One of the innovations of the creativity that is done by Disney is producing a live action from the animation movies that has been released for several years. In 2017, Disney has been working on The Little Mermaid. They also remake the new music that is featured in the movie. The actress who will play the role of Ariel in the Little Mermaid is a 19-year-old singer, Halle Bailey. She will play the lead role of Ariel. Disney even made an announcement of choosing the actress that plays a role as Ariel since July 2019. According to Disney, they will start to produce the live-action movie of The Little Mermaid in the beginning of 2020. They don't publish the set release date for the movie.
Based on the previous discussion, Disney stated the artist who will play the role as Ariel is Halle Bailey. She is actually a singer. When she is chosen by Disney to lead the Ariel role, she is just 19 years old. In the music scene, Halle is one of the members of The R&B Duo. In the R&B duo, she is the younger sister, with Chloe Bailey is the older one. Hailey is known because she and her sister started posting their songs and they sing it on YouTube. So, we can conclude that Halle is a YouTube singer and also an actress.
