      It could be that her father is white and her mother black but i agree on all your opinions

        Ariel will be great...the fact that her father is white actually firs more with the script of her being adventurous trying to find herself etc etc

                                I see your concerns Grace and agree with most of them .. but I think I have an idea of what Disney is trying to do .. I think they are trying to recreate the vibe that the Cinderella with Brandy and Whitney Houston did ... with almost every role a different ethnicity and none of them really making any since ... to this day to me ( in my humble personal opinion) I think that’s one of the best live action fairytale musical adaptation around... though I would have liked some more cohesive casting I think it might shock us

                                              Grace, in that scene in the live TV performance the main idea was to think that we’re hearing Ariel’s thoughts still longing for Eric love since she cannot say anything. I’m thinking they were also do the same when the live action theatrical version with Halle Bailey for one of the new songs of film.

                                                God let's just call a spade a spade. Had the lead been white with dyed red hair. Most of the casting would be a problem.

                                                  Bad casting. I feel like it's so obvious that the majority of the cast should be black. With Halle Bailey's casting being so controversial, she needs black audience support. They shouldve done majority black leads (Ursula, Eric and Triton) and diverse supporting characters. I think that wouldve brought more excitement for the people who liked ariels casting and for the black audience. That's not to say black audiences won't show up regardless or that they're even required to show up. But I still think this was a missed opportunity.

                                                      Except the animated version doesn't make it clear it's set in the Caribbean. The underwater stuff implies that, but when she meets Eric and he takes her to see the sights it definitely looks like they're either in Spain or Italy, and assuming mermaids can't swim at light speed, I'm going to assume the waters she lives in are off the coast of Spain or Italy as well. Disney doesn't say. Maybe it's just a made up world? I don't care that Disney wanted a black girl as Ariel, I actually think Halle Bailey is adorable and she defintely has the Disney princess look, but trying to play it off as fixing the "cultural appropriation" of the original is stupid.

                                                            There are non-black Caribbean’s and the blacks that live there are not native so your point is invalid. Furthermore, and this might be unfair, but I feel like you would still defend her casting even if you didn’t feel like the movie was set in the Caribbean (which the ACTUAL FILMMAKERS confirm that it’s not), so why don’t you just be honest and stop using the location as a shield. It would make me respect you more.

I hope Disney comes up with some new ideas soon and stops with this live-action crap.

                                                                                        I literally do not understand the hype around Miranda. I thought the music for Moana (which everyone hyped that he had a hand in) was mediocre at best. Other than Hamilton, he's a bit of a miss. Remember Godspell? Or In the Heights? Yeah neither do most people in the musical theatre world.
