Zendaya as Ariel by daekazu Zendaya as Ariel by daekazu
"Little Mermaid" is still my favorite Disney's animated movie so when I heard that Zendaya could play her in live action version my first thought was: I have to draw this!
After her role in "the Greatest Showman" I have no worries. ;]
I'm so delayed with all of these fun drawings, so I know that I've missed "hype time" with this pic. :>

Why fork? Did she eat her fish-companion?

I must live in a grotto (Ariel's ? XD) cause I don't even know who is Zendaya. I googled and I can say she is really cute. I don't know for her acting but yes, she is really beautiful. And who cares about her skin color ! It's a great !

Really gorgeous art as always. Her eyes are hypnotising !

I know some people would be upset if she plays Ariel, but I'll take a girl that can act and sing anytime over just a name to draw some more money to the boxoffice….not gonna name the person who ruined my favorite Disney animation and princess. Anyhow, Zendaya doesn't disappoint.

0.0 I didn't hear about that! Well, I know that they were doing a live action, but I didn't hear about who would play the characters! I haven't really seen the Greatest Showman, but I'm sure if she was great in that movie, then she would be perfect for this role. ^^

While I think it's interesting that it seems that every ginger character is being cast by a non-white actor, Zendaya would be great in the role. And honestly, any adaptation would be better than the live-action version that was made last year with the actor who played Peter from Narnia in it.

I'm absolutely in love with Zendaya, so I would LOVE to see her play Ariel! If not her, then I'd pick Ariana Grande - she's got that higher-pitched speaking voice that would work for the young teenage Ariel; plus she's got some major pipes on her.

This is a beautiful piece of art! I love it!

This would have to be one of the most ambitious live-action remakes they're planning. The logistics of having to potentially do so many underwater scenes would be staggering (but I'm sure they can figure something out) Also, I hope they don't cheap out on the tails, either (as in, CGI all day; or rather, no dolphin kicks in cheap rubber tails).

Seeing this, I can kinda see her as Ariel in a live-action movie. Don't know if she'd be willing to dye her hair that red just for a movie, though.

Even before I read the caption I recognised the facial features as Zendaya's, that's really good art. :)

I did not know Zendaya might play Ariel. I for one am all for it. Ariel is a singer so obviously, they need someone who has some lungs and that, Zendaya has. Ariel is also supposed to be beautiful which Zendaya is. My only concern is how they will pull off the bright red hair. I personally, do not think red would be the most flattering on her skin tone but I am sure they'll make it work.

This is so GORGEOUS!! You captured her perfectly, and I think she would make a fantastic Ariel!! Seriously LOVE the colours in her hair and really love the design of the bra too. Just SO lovely!! ♥♥

People need to stop complaining. She isn’t even black. She’s mixed. I really hope if she’s casted that she’ll have the big red hair. The Little Mermaid is my favorite Disney princess movie too!

The only reason people got triggered by this is people oly see Zendaya as black  where in reality she is biracial .Her mom is white and her dad is black.I would love to see this because Ariel is my favorite princess, love Zendaya and Zhas red hair wonderfully:)
