            So happy for Halle. Surprised Disney kept it under wraps for so long considering she wasn't even one of the rumored actresses.
            Rest In Peace Lilly!

                As long as she has the signature red hair I don’t care if she’s White, Black or Yellow

                      Is not about being purist... It’s about making a live action version similar to the classic animated movie we’ve all watched 1000 times. As they did with Cinderella or Belle.
                      And Ariel is a white, ginger girl, and the story is located in Scandinavia.

                      Can you imagine a live action version of Princess and the Frog with a white girl in New Orleans? Or a white blonde Aladdin?
                      There would be a huge call to boycott those films. Please, be honest and tell me you won’t be fuming then and saying it’s racist.

                      Of course, many will say it’s racism and will play the race card if you dare to say you don’t like her for the role... But Ariel is one of Disney’s most characteristics princess. So a different image in the live action movie is not what many will expect. I’d be saying the same if they had a blonde white girl with short hair or a white girl with curly brown hair to play the role... They’re not the Ariel we all know.

                        I agree with this to some extend but the thing is there haven't been any black princesses in the old disney classics for obvious reasons...A mermaid (an imaginary creature) is certainly not the same thing as a girl from New Orleans or Aladdin in arabia, where heritage is important for the story. They went with the same looking girls for many movies already. It is a remake after all, not everything has to be shot for shot. They can still be true to the original plot wise and it will certainly involve CGI therefore the easiest task would be giving her her signature red hair.

                          The Disney version never states a location or where it is, half of the fish wouldn't been in it, if we want to see accuracy.
                          Cinderella has been played by Brandy
                          We got Once Upon a Time with a hispanic Cinderella, and gave Ursula basically Ariel's backstory in a sense. Then there is descendants with a black Cruella etc.

                          Fairytales are there to tell stories and learn lessons. The onlt thing the Little Mermaid needs is a mermaid, a love intetest, a sea creature villian and you basically can tell the story.

                          Don't hold too much on your childhood, the old films are still there and there are various adaptians alreasy with a ted headed white girl.

                          Princess and the Frog for example has things from black culture waved into the story, so a white, asian or hispanic adaptation would be odd. Same for Aladin which has various elements that make it the way it is, same for even to an extend Belle and The Beast which has clear hints to the French setting. Stories like Cinderella, The Little Mermaid and a few others have a far more general setting and characters that more different adaptions while staying true to the original aswell.

                            yeah. "original" tale was like 200 years ago. Diseny's Animation was re-imagination of tale, lots of changes including red hair and ursula and ending, jamaican crap.
                            this mermaid tale/myth has very thin connection to race/country/specific culture. it's very fantasy.
                            you can't compare this with the story heavily driven by specific culture/race.

                            and Ursula was inspired by drag queen, I don't see "those people" demanding drag queen casting or angry about melissa mccarthy casting.

                              ...I‘m done with it already. I‘m not the biggest fan of those live action movies anyway so it’s okay.

                              I can’t at black Disney stans on Twitter pointing their fingers at "racists" when they literally cried for YEARS that Ursula has to be black. "Ariel is a fictional character so she can be bla...“ well yeah but Ursula never really existed either so they could make her white, right? Imagine how they‘d act it Disney would cast a white woman as Ursula. :lol.

                                    I believe the story is Caribbean based, so I believe Disney is correcting their story whether then race-bending the character. My thoughts!!!

                                      The story is most certainly not Caribbean based.
                                      The Disney movie was based on a Hans Christian Andersen story which takes place under/around the Baltic sea.
                                      But honestly in the end, who cares. The movie is for the most part under the sea (Atlantica, a fictional place to begin with) and in my book it could be set anywhere and skin color doesn't matter.
                                      However! I do think the choice of making Ariel a black girl might be a forced choice.
                                      These Disney remakes are all about inclusion and I initially thought they might make Ursula black(She's purple in the animated movie), but making the villain black and the heroin white would obviously not be the best choice considering the backlash it would get.
                                      Honestly, I just think these Disney remakes are worthless to begin with, but if they're going to do them they might as well adjust to our current times.
                                      If you wanna see Ariel the way you want her to see, just rewatch the old movie.

                                              That's the animated Disney movie. The original story did not have a Sebastian.
                                              What I'm trying to say is, Disney took these folk stories and transformed them to fit with the times, so it's only natural for them to take this movie and bring it into these modern times.

                                              We can take these stories and adapt them in every way possible, that's the nice thing about fairytales.

                                                        ^There's certain iconic things you can't swap.
                                                        A lot of dreams will be shattered if she don't have the red hair, she can even have red dreads but it HAS to be red. And her fishtail needs to be turquoise.
                                                        It's like when they made Maleficent not really green and mean.
                                                        No!!!!!
                                                        The woman was a mean evil and toxic C you next tuesday! You gotta respect these characters atleast with certain trademarks.

                                                          The movie is unnecessary as the 1989 one is a classic and needs no new version.
                                                          I am not trying to seduce you... Would you like me to seduce you? Is that what you're trying to tell me?

                                                            Which is the definition of being a Disney purist, so thanks for proving my point.
                                                            And there's nothing stopping you from watching the animated movie another 1000 times. People always get so worked up over the remakes, and I never understand why... I pick and choose which ones I'll watch and which ones I'll ignore, and so far that has worked nicely for me.

                                                            And Ariel is a white, ginger girl,
                                                            she is a fictional sea creature, her skin tone is pretty much irrelevant to the story and we don't even know yet what colour her hair will be.

                                                            and the story is located in Scandinavia.
                                                            Is it? The source material by Hans Christian Andersen is located in Scandinavia. The Disney movie doesn't specify as far as I recall... and there's marine life in the movie that you wouldn't normally find in the Baltic Sea. Either way, unlike e.g. Aladdin which is deeply rooted in middle eastern culture, the location is more or less irrelevant to the story. All you need to tell the story is a seaside setting.

                                                            Can you imagine a live action version of Princess and the Frog with a white girl in New Orleans
                                                            Haven't seen that movie, but I'm sure I can. About one third of NOLA's population is white, you know.

                                                            Or a white blonde Aladdin?
                                                            Different case, because the story revolves heavily around middle eastern folklore and culture. It wouldn't make sense to turn him white. Just like a white Moana wayfinding her way through the Pacific wouldn't make sense.

                                                            Please, be honest and tell me you won’t be fuming then and saying it’s racist.
                                                            I never "fume" about something as trivial as bad movie casting (even if it's discriminatory), because - while it is unfortunate, irritating and should be opposed - our world certainly has bigger issues to focus my anger on than the various "-isms" in the forever shallow and money-driven entertainment industry. Especially in regards to racism. Annoyance and snide comments? Sure. Fuming? Nah.

                                                            Of course, many will say it’s racism and will play the race card if you dare to say you don’t like her for the role... But Ariel is one of Disney’s most characteristics princess. So a different image in the live action movie is not what many will expect. I’d be saying the same if they had a blonde white girl with short hair or a white girl with curly brown hair to play the role... They’re not the Ariel we all know.
                                                            Calm down, you haven't seen her yet. If you ask me: Ariel's most striking feature is her red hair... which she could actually still have.
