The singer, Halle Bailey, was cast as the lead in Rob Marshall’s live-action remake of the 1989 animated Disney classic film, The Little Mermaid, in 2019 and filming was scheduled to begin in early 2020.
However, filming was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic and finally resumed in January 2021 and wrapped up over the weekend.
In celebration of the end of production in Sardinia, Halle shared a first glimpse of herself in character on her Instagram page.
In the official image, she can be seen laying in shallow water at sun set. While she can’t be seen in detail, viewers can spot her long hair and mermaid tail.
