Ariel is Black and People are MAD but Here’s Why We are Here for it!

We are finally getting our 2nd Black Disney Princess. A black Ariel! And this time we may actually get to see her face on the screen for more than 22 minutes (Tiana, I got you!).

When I first heard Disney was doing a live action version of The Little Mermaid I let out an exasperated sigh. Another live action remake from our childhood, can we please get a new hobby? But I’ll admit, after Aladdin, they’re bringing me back around a bit. Then, today they announced Halle Bailey as Ariel.

I read the emailed press release from my phone. “After an extensive search, it was abundantly clear that Halle [Bailey] possesses that rare combination of spirit, heart, youth, innocence, and substance — plus a glorious singing voice — all intrinsic qualities necessary to play this iconic role,” says director Rob Marshall.

I’ll admit I didn’t recognize the name when I opened the email but as soon as I saw her picture I gasped. I turned to my husband who was laying next to me and said “Look who they cast as Ariel!”

What Parents Need to Know Before Taking Their Kids to See ‘DC League of Super Pets’

Wondering if DC League of Super Pets is scary for kids or worth seeing theaters? This spoiler-free review will help you decide. 

DC movies are something I’ve been having a hard time getting into, but thanks to Ty, my 9-year-old superhero obsessed son, I’m giving them a try. Wonder Woman and Superman Man of Steel were fine, but I was not a fan of Justice League. I haven’t even wasted my time with Aquaman which I heard was terrible, but I did recently watch Shazam with him and was pleasantly surprised. DC League of Super Pets combines his love of superheroes AND animals, so I was really excited to bring the whole family and hear his take.
