Lin-Manuel Miranda Says Halle Bailey Will Be 'Incredible' In 'The Little Mermaid'

Lin-Manuel Miranda Says Halle Bailey Will Be 'Incredible' In 'The Little Mermaid'

Lin-Manuel Miranda is singing high praises for Halle Bailey in The Little Mermaid!

If you didn’t know, the Hamilton creator is actually involved in the movie – he’s co-writing four new songs with composer Alan Menken.

In a recent interview, Lin-Manuel opened up about Halle, who will of course be playing the lead role, Ariel.

Halle Bailey is going to be such an incredible Ariel,” he told ET‘s Keltie Knight. “And getting to write music for these characters that are probably the reason I started writing musicals in the first place, it was actually easier than I thought.”

“But the hardest part was my own intimidation working with Alan Menken and that was entirely self-imposed,” Lin-Manuel added. “But when it came to how these characters speak and what they say, I’ve known that all my life. So that was a joy.”

Halle previously spoke out about how The Little Mermaid was supposed to begin filming right as the pandemic hit.

'His Dark Materials' Star Dafne Keen Reveals What Her Dæmon Would Be!

'His Dark Materials' Star Dafne Keen Reveals What Her Dæmon Would Be!

Dafne Keen is sharing her spirit animal – literally!

The 14-year-old Logan actress, who is starring in HBO’s upcoming adaptation of Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy, talked to Entertainment Weekly about her ideal dæmon during an interview at Comic-Con in San Diego, Calif.

Dæmons, for those unfamiliar with the trilogy, are one of the most unique and captivating parts of the His Dark Materials world.

In the series, every human has an animal companion, with whom they can communicate, that acts as a living, breathing representation of the human’s soul – which means that the shape a person’s takes can tell you a lot about them.

“You know these small tropical monkeys?” Dafne, who stars as the series’ protagonist, Lyra Belacqua, said, when asked about what her dæmon would be.

Lin-Manuel Miranda, who co-stars in the series, had the best answer to the dæmon question though: Pizza Rat.

“Do you remember that rat that dragged the pizza down the subway?” he said. “I think my dæmon can take care of itself, it’s a New Yorker… I think it’s a pizza subway rat. I’m a New York rat.”
