In anticipation of Disney’s live-action reimagining of The Little Mermaid, Halle Bailey, who plays Ariel in the upcoming film, took to the stage to perform “Part of Your Word” for hundreds of fans in front of Sleeping Beauty’s castle at Disneyland Resort.
The Little Mermaid tells the story of King Triton’s youngest daughter, Ariel, who trades with a sea witch named Ursala, her beautiful voice for human legs, so the young mermaid can explore the human world and win over the heart of a prince.
Directed by Rob Marshall and written by David Magee, Marshall, and John DeLuca, the film stars Bailey as Ariel, Daveed Diggs as the voice of Sebastian, Jacob Tremblay as the voice of Flounder, Awkwafina as the voice of Scuttle, Jonah Hauer-King as Prince Eric, Art Malik as Sir Grimsby, Noma Dumezweni as queen Selina, Javier Bardem as King Triton and Melissa McCarthy as Ursula.
The Little Mermaid swims to theaters on May 23. You can watch Halle Bailey’s magical performances of “Part of Your World” which will move you to tears below.
The “Part of Your World” single is available on Apple Music, Amazon Music, Spotify, and YouTube Music. The Little Mermaid soundtrack will be available on May 19 and can be pre-saved on Apple Music and pre-ordered on vinyl and CD at Disney Music Emporium.
