Over the past few months, Disney has been filming the live-action remake of the classic animated film, “The Little Mermaid”, which will star Grown-ish actress Halle Bailey in the title role.

She has taken to social media today to confirm that filming has now finished and shared a photo of her in the lovely Sardinian waters.

Filming had been delayed by a year due to the pandemic and has been filmed at Pinewood Studios in London and in Sardinia.

The new film has been directed by Rob Marshall, who has previously directed “Mary Poppins Returns” and it ) will feature the original music by Alan Menken in addition to new songs that have been co-written by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

    I look forward to The Little Mermaid live-action because it's the first time we're gonna have an incredible experience with the first-ever black mermaid on Disney and it's going to be magical for the audience 🧜🏾‍♀️ I was shocked when they announce that an African-American actress was gonna take on the iconic role. Even the original Ariel (Jodi Benson) defended the casting of Halle Bailey. I literally can't wait for this film to come out ☺️
