    Melissa is absolutely hilarious, we know this

  2. OG1619 says:

    I don’t know why I was negative against this show but I found a whole meaning in the show.

  3. Akylah Riedl says:

    Malissa did such a great job as Ursula !!!!! I was in shock I’m so proud of this movie

  4. olivia says:

    I was pleasently surprised by how the whole cast gave their 110% for this movie. Melissa and Jonah's acting were too good, Halle's beautiful voice ofc but her charisma and her acting in the fragile and small moments were great too. And Daveed really stole the show, you could tell he wanted to make the part right and truly exceeded

  5. Ask Why says:

    I do wonder if a singer ever gets tired of singing one song.
    I've know we've listened to her sing this song an embarrassing amount of times for adults…

  6. Akwafina also Voiced "Sisu" in Raya and the Last Dragon. It's not just Soul and Shang-chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

  7. I've now seen the movie twice since it finally came out in Japan, and I just have to say it: Halle Bailey IS Ariel. It's not just her siren-like voice – I mean, in the film, she is genuinely Ariel. Her curiosity, her sweetness and innocence. She's adorable, too. You feel so heartbroken for her during certain scenes and just want to root for her the whole time. "The Little Mermaid" was never my favorite of the animations, but 100%, it has become my favorite of the live action remakes. This movie is just a masterpiece.

  8. Tony少 says:

    As much as I love Melissa as Ursula
    I still think it’s a missed opportunity for not casting a Drag Queen to play Ursula
    That’s the diverse casting we need
    Ursula was always meant to be Drag Queen
    And Jinkx and Ginger would surely able to nail it

  9. Nat says:

    She’s atlantican from the ocean . So can someone explain her nationality too me. I’m assuming she doesn’t have one cause she’s not a human . So her race doesn’t matter if you really think about it. Much different from the other princesses. Am I wrong ??

  10. Potter Head says:

    Halle is a real life Disney Princess 🥰. So elegant and her voice was so powerful and beautiful to hear. Way to go girl 😍

  11. Omg Everybody wants to be a cat is so underrated, go listen to the aristocats soundtrack now! 😂

  12. So much love for each one of these amazing performers!!

  13. Tammy Farrel says:

    Melissa and Hailey u sick

  14. Tammy Farrel says:

    You both ruined the movie

  15. Britany Mae says:

    Halle comes off as the sweetest warmest soul

  16. Alysha Dugan says:

    Ron Marshall calling up Halle, Jonah and Melissa by their character name to is seriously the cutest thing 🧜🏽‍♀️🫶🏾

  17. woodale says:

    Halle's voice is most definitely intimidating

  18. Halle is so humble as well as the other casts Melissa, Awkwafina and Daveed

  19. Rita Blunt says:

    I thoroughly enjoyed this movie with my daughter and my grand-daughter. My grand-daughter got so much attention for wearing a Little Mermaid bottom to the theatre! Bravo Halle 😊👊🏽💪🏽🙏🏽🙌🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

  20. Did you guys know that beyonce has nothing to do with this interview ?

  21. Halle is a beautiful human being and I literally cannot imagine her not getting a huge Disney princess role, not only she can sing but have a pretty personality and a wonderful heart. She deserves every bit of the love she’s receiving from this role, she put on a damn good show as a representation of Ariel ❤

  22. Callie A says:

    Halle comes from the same planet as Ariana Grande

  23. Trinidad 🇹🇹 and Jamaica 🇯🇲

  24. Lisa Marie says:

    I love this interviewer

  25. My own Ariel❤️💚💚

  26. Lmaoooo “when you call him daddy”😂😂😂 anyway love it

  27. Halle is so gentle. Ariel was perfect for her

  28. Nina Fofang says:

    She’s such an angel 😍 love her spirit and just her heart. It really shines through her every word and action❤

  29. Summer D says:

    Great interview and the interviewer… 👏👏👏👏 great job

  30. Amber says:

    When I found out Halle would be playing Ariel I just remember being like oh yeah that makes sense. She literally IS a Disney princess vibe. She’s sweet and gentle and graceful. She’s the only person in the entertainment industry I see playing this role.

  31. I totally loved the movie Halle did amazing. I love the little mermaid and she just made it so much better and the fact that the original little mermaid said she did great doesn't matter what nobody says

  32. Halle is Ariel hands down, she sounds like her she is so sweet and they just nailed it.

  33. VZ says:

    I'm so tired for Halle getting asked about Beyoncé. I normally like this interviewer but it's so unnecessary. She's more than her association with her

  34. Ivy Bee says:

    Halle was meant to be Ariel. She sounds like what I imagine a mermaid would sound like. 😂. Her voice is seriously amazing.


  36. Chrissy H says:

    The cast was amazing in the movie. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

  37. Mi 6 says:

    Contrived voice and too theatric so bad… it’s weird she got the role

  38. I get so overjoyed listening to all these interviews with the cast from the Little
    Mermaid 🥰🙏🏾

  39. Tiffany Rice says:

    The Live Action Little Mermaid is my favorite movie rn

  40. I loved this movie! But on the real, Skuttle's song is one of my new favorites! Loved that fun song!
