I’m really excited about my version of the film because we’ve changed so much motivation for her to leave the ocean“explained the singer and actress. “It’s not just for a guy, it’s so much more than that. She does it for herself, for her purpose, her freedom, her life and what she wants.”

As women we are amazing, we are independent, we are modern, we are everything and above everythingcontinued Halle Bailey.And I’m glad Disney is updating some of these themes. I pushed myself to the limit during filming and I think Ariel reminded me that I always knew I was capable of doing that.”
