“I feel like I’m dreaming,” she shared while flaunting her legs in a Rhea Costa Pre-Fall 2019 mini dress at the Power of Young Hollywood party. “And I’m just grateful. I don’t pay attention to the negativity; I just feel like this role is something bigger than me. And it’s going to be beautiful. I’m just so excited to be a part of it.”

The live-action adaptation of “The Little Mermaid” has not yet started filming and will be directed by Rob Marshall. The movie will incorporate original songs from the 1989 animated hit as well as new tunes from original musical director Alan Menken with lyrics by “Hamilton” composer Lin-Manuel Miranda.
“After an extensive search, it was abundantly clear that Halle possesses that rare combination of spirit, heart, youth, innocence, and substance — plus a glorious singing voice — all intrinsic qualities necessary to play this iconic role,” Marshall said in a statement.
Joined by her sister Chloe Bailey, Halle styled her sexy dress with barely-there ankle-strap sandals.
