Back in July, Bailey revealed that the movie completed production and shared what her filming experience was like amid COVID-19. “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,” Bailey wrote on Instagram. “I feel so grateful to have experienced this film in all of its glory… 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.”
The Little Mermaid live-action movie will premiere on May 26, 2023. Stay tuned while we wait for the official trailer.
