Okay! Now that we know Disney has it on their minds to cast POC leads in upcoming Live-Action version of the 1989 classic, The Little Mermaid, let’s help them along and offer some suggestions. Here are my top five pics to be the new Ariel!
Zendaya (The Greatest Showman/Spider-Man Homecoming)
Zendaya is apparently on their list, and is definitely my top choice. She’s got a long standing relationship with the company, has the wit and spunk of Ariel, and definitely looks great with red hair.
