Since the announcement was made that Halle Bailey would be playing the role of Ariel in The Little Mermaid, the internet seems to have spiraled into utter chaos.
Some people were all for it, showering the actress with supportive comments while others took the opposite route, making sure to share their opinion about the "inaccurate" casting. For those of you in the latter group, do me a favor and get over it. Halle is the new Ariel and that is that.
However, those of you that are extremely excited about the release of the live-action, this one is for you! We have collated a bunch of artwork created by fans who are extremely hyped for its release.
Prepare to be stunned.
