Halle Bailey Strikes A Pose In The Water To Announce She's Finished Filming The Live-Action Remake Of 'The Little Mermaid'
Halle Bailey is no longer under the sea! On July 12, the actress revealed via Instagram that she had officially wrapped filming for Disney's live-action remake of The Little Mermaid.
In her scenic post, the star is pictured at sunset sitting down in a shallow and rocky area of the ocean, perfectly mimicking her character, Ariel.
"And just like that..that’s a wrap ❤️after auditioning for this film when i was 18 just about to turn 19 , to now finishing filming through a pandemic when i turned 21 ..we have finally made it...💖," she shared in the caption.
"I feel so grateful to have experienced this film in all of its glory," Bailey continued. "It has been the toughest experience being away from everything and everyone I’ve ever known, to feeling self doubt/ loneliness, but also feeling such freedom and perseverance as I’ve reached the end."
"This experience has made me so much stronger than I ever thought i could be," she gushed. "I’m so grateful to have such lovely and talented people in the cast."
The Grown-ish star then tagged some of the people she worked with, such as "legends" Melissa McCarthy and Awkwafina, who "are masters of their craft but are so welcoming and open to little old me."
The singer also gave a shout-out go Jacob Tremblay, whom she's "so proud" of, as well as Jonah Hauer-King, who plays her character's love interest, Prince Eric.
"I cannot wait for time to speed up so you all can watch this film because it was made with so much love (plus blood sweat and tears)," she concluded. "Thank you sardinia for a wonderful ending!!! xoxo."
Hauer-King also made a special social media post to honor the occasion.
"It has been the most formative and special job of my life," he declared. "Thank you to all of the absolutely incredible crew and cast who blew me away with their talent and professionalism — some of them pictured here, many of them not 🙏."
"Genuinely so excited for you all to see the phenomenal work done by the teams behind and in front of camera — not least Halle, who is absolute magic in the film," he added. "I love ya. Just wait 🧜🏾♀️💫."
