"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. :>

Didn't they pick Halle Bailey for the live action remake?

They did. This artwork here was created long before the anouncement!

In all seriousness , if they just make Zendaya's hair red, there would be 0 problems from allot of people

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 haven't heard of this. But I would definitely see the movie; I love Zendaya and think she's extremely talented.

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.
