Bailey and her sister Chloe began their careers posting covers of Beyoncé to YouTube. The star herself discovered them, and the pair were brought on to open for her Lemonade tour.

Jodi Benson, who voiced Ariel in the original, has backed the casting of Bailey. "I think that the spirit of a character is what really matters," she said.

"What you bring to the table in a character as far as their heart and their spirit is what really counts. I think the most important thing for a film is to be able to tell a story."

Crazy Rich Asians and The Farewell star Awkwafina had initially been confirmed as the voice of a gender-swapped Scuttle, the seagull companion of Ariel who helps her navigate her new, voiceless world.

The star then cast a shadow of doubt on the casting. Awkwafina attended the D23 expo to promote her new Disney film Raya and the Last Dragon. When asked about lending her voice to the role of Scuttle, she replied coyly.

"Aww man, that all isn't confirmed yet, but obviously if it happens, I would be more than honoured," she said (via ET). "It's a classic, yeah. I'm very, very happy. That's my princess right there, so I'm very happy with what they have [announced] so far."

But now you can rest easy. Awkwafina recently revealed to Marie Claire that she will, in fact, be playing Scuttle.

Room star Jacob Tremblay is rumoured to voice Ariel's confidant Flounder, but he was also vague about his inclusion in the cast. "I've also heard the rumours. It isn't confirmed yet so I guess we'll have to see. But I mean, what kid wouldn't wanna be in a Disney movie? I mean that would be pretty cool," he told ET.

Oscar nominee Melissa McCarthy is rumoured to be voicing sea witch Ursula, but she responded to the rumours in as vague a way as you would expect. Her potentially joining the cast has come under fire from many, as people had been hoping for a drag queen to play the underwater villain.

It's been reported that Javier Bardem is likely to voice King Triton, but Terry Crews has no hard feelings despite throwing his hat in the ring to take the role.

A rumour circulated that Harry Styles will be voicing heartthrob Prince Eric – but it's since been revealed he will not be taking on the role to many a fan's disappointment (via PA). One theory behind this casting choice is that Harry Styles is simply too famous.

Styles said: "I want to put music out and focus on that for a while, but everyone involved in it [The Little Mermaid] was amazing, so I think it's going to be great. I'll enjoy watching it, I'm sure."

So, who will be anointed as the handsome Prince Eric? Deadline reported that the names in the running included Kryptonstar Cameron Cuffe and Little Women's Jonah Hauer-King. They both have recently screen-tested for the role at London's Pinewood Studios.

Chris Evans: ‘Knives Out felt right from the beginning’

  Chris Evans: ‘Knives Out felt right from the beginning’ Chris Evans knew Knives Out was going to be a special movie from the moment the cast and crew got together. The Captain America actor stars alongside Daniel Craig, Christopher Plummer, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, and Toni Collette, among others, in Rian Johnson’s Agatha Christie-inspired murder mystery, which earned rave reviews when it debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month. In an interview with Deadline, Evans shared that he knew he had signed up to a winning project when he first met the rest of the ensemble cast.

Now it's down to director Rob Marshall and the casting director to choose. It may be that the pair weren't screen testing for Prince Eric at all. Disney often casts up-and-coming stars in its most iconic roles, so having Cuffe and Hauer-King's names in the running follows in this pattern.

As for Ariel's sisters and the cynical Sebastian, casting has yet to be confirmed, or even rumoured.

The Little Mermaid release date: When can I expect the movie?

No release date has been confirmed as yet, but production on the live-action remake is rumoured to begin sometime in April 2020. That would indicate a release in late 2021.

Disney has yet to release any plot details, nor a synopsis. However, if the live-action follows in the footsteps of Aladdin and The Lion King, it will likely follow a similar trajectory as the 1989 original.

But this isn't always a safe bet. Some live-action Disney adaptations have strayed from the plot beats of their source material.

This year's live-action remake of Dumbo was much darker than the 1941 original. Likewise, Disney's upcoming Mulan remake is pulling its plot from the legend of Hua Mulan, as opposed to the animated hit with a dragon voiced by Eddie Murphy. It also won't feature the fan-loved songs from the animated movie.

But for fans who are worried they won't hear 'Under the Sea', The Little Mermaid seems like it will hedge close to the original. The casting of Chloe Bailey, at the very least, hints in that direction.

However, the remake of The Lion King was criticised in part for being too similar to the original; almost identical, in fact. The Little Mermaid looks like it will have to tread the fine line between homage and imitation, and between respect and innovation.

The Little Mermaid trailer: When can I see it?

So far there is no official trailer online, nor are there any teasers. Once filming starts in April, there may be a first-look teaser, like the one Disney recently released for Mulan.
