            Its adults that are complaining because they were children when the originals were released. Obviously, as children in the 90s we grew up with the Little Mermaid being white, red hair, with blue eyes and its been that way for 30 years. Nostalgia would cause these now adults to be up in arms wanting to their beloved Ariel to remain the same but times have changed. In the end, you cant please everyone and children of today are lucky to grow up with diversity.

              Tes becuase the only thing left to talk about is politics not the actual story or art or production or anything that's actually relevant and meaningful. We gotta focus on the politics yall! That'll get us the likes!

                I wish aul’i was playing Ariel sorry but to me it is just not right for Halle to be playing Ariel pls don’t hate on me I don’t have anything against Halle it’s just Ariel is one of my favorite Disney princesses and to see get dreads and change her skin completely just doesn’t feel right to me again pls no hate I have nothing against black people

                  As long as they give her red hair I personally don’t have a problem with it. The red hair is a defining feature, so I’m assuming that since they gave Auli’i red hair for the ABC Live, they’ll do something similar for Halle. It doesn’t have to be natural, she’s a mermaid. What’s natural for mermaid hair can be different from what is natural for human hair.

                    Girl is very pretty never heard of her, I dont think its going to make money there wasting there money on making the movie it's going to flop, Disney going to lose there money, I like the cartoon better.

                        This video missed the point. There is backlash for the movie because it is a live adaptation of the original little mermaid cartoon released in 1989, in which the original character was Danish w red hair. If this was any other type of mermaid movie it wouldn't matter. But recreating the original Ariel cartoon that is a staple for disney creates that controversy not because of her skin but because she does not look at all like the original cartoon.

                          You do know adaptions arent accurate right?

                          The disney cartoon was an adaption on the tale. Nothing about it was accurate. Hell the mermaid is just a mermaid that's her race

                          And if this causes controversy shame on you for letting it bother you in the first place. That's your own fault

                          Whom ever this 2 are should do a little more research before going infront of a camera 🤦‍♀️ they are all there to criticize and judge their viewers but can't even say the actresses names correctly! They can't even remember a song's name either 😒 but hey at least they are bringing the news that one got social media attacks for the color of her skin and the other one didn't. I don't get why the media keeps giving negative crap attention 🤔 they are both beautiful talented young women stop comparing because they are both amazingly talented

If the wanted it to be dark they would already do tht in The first place but they don't? Disney is playing your race like a ball gonna get attacked for taking over other race's place, but you're not smart enough to see or understand lol

Because people are already engaged with the original Ariel in mind. Changing it just a stupid move. Some don't like change some do. I will stick to old Ariel. Enjoy your new Ariel

                                      We all know it’s gonna be trash anyways. Not because the actress is black, but because live actions are bad in general. Especially the lion king, which is probably going to have influence in the animations. Disney please make new original movies and stop with the cash grabs

                                        So a Black actress and a Polynesian actress will portray Ariel in a live action movie and tv special, respectively? Normally, I’d have preferred redheads for the roles, but can these girls act?Because I don’t want to believe that they’re only being cast just to pander for diversity agenda rather than on talent. And I wonder, when they become human, will they be wearing only a sea shell bra?

                                          Would you call Ariel a redhead? Merida and Anna look more like gingers

                                          Ariel looks like a girl who went and dyed bright red into her hair.

                                          But yeah, its Hollywood dude. Actors change their hair color constantly for these roles.

                                          It seems like a lot of people don't understand that concept nowadays

                                          The alt right or whatever are already bitching about this

                                          Do you know how many "what if we made Pocahontas white?" Comments I've seen?

                                          Don't get me wrong the liberals are also making this a big deal

                                          Basically it's not a matter of political ideology. It's just a bunch of grown ass idiots getting riled up over a kid's movie. It's like bronys. Doesn't matter if they were liberal or conservative. They were just awful in general

                                        Playing the racist card again I see, Auli’i didn't get backlash because nobody even knew there was going to be a TV series; same with Hermione on the Broadway show nobody cares about that! BUT Disney live adaption is a big deal they only do this once in 50 years probably that's why people care. We just want to see the real Ariel from the Animated version bring to life! So SHUT UP with the racist shit!

                                                    It isn’t about racism, it’s about Disney recycling princesses just because they want more diversity. We want diversity, but just don’t recycle the other princesses, just saying...

It's still wrong though because she also doesn't represent pale redheads which is obviously what Ariel is.

Auli'i was Moana, and I follow her on Instagram, so I'm pretty okay with her as Ariel. Halle so far seems like a good choice, better than most people I'd heard rumors about.

It's same people who argue Naomi Scott play Jasmine and she's half white and when it came out and actually was kinda successful, nobody cares about it and move on to bashing Halle.

I guess everyone seemed to forget about how we also go through some tough shit and it’s not only about black and white people! Is there a Latina Disney princess? NO! Why not?!? Every talks about how they love the diversity that they show or that any movie show, but if there were really diversity you’d have every one including Hispanics not only white and black people! ( I have nothing against white and black people but I would just like to see my Latinos get represented

Hey Disney, let me ask you something. What are you going to do when you realize that your two worst mistakes come from a) taking away 2D animation away from theatrical releases entirely and b) remaking them with live people who barely even try to emote their dumb faces. I truly hope that you wake up and realize the mediocre sham that you have become and that all you are left with is cash-grabbing TV junk that could never grab as much as a single nickel from underneath your dusty, old couch cushion. This era of Disney is the worst thing to ever happen to creativity, and may God have mercy on your greedy, greedy souls.

King Triton is a Spanish actor and you have Eric maybe being latinx but Ariel is black. Either cast people that make sense as family or do what the Whitney Houston’s Cinderella versión did and be all inclusive. The movie is turning into a mess because they seem to have become afraid of going all the way with casting. I’m still think they should have cast a drag queen to be Ursula. I’m sure Queen Latifah and Melisa will do fine but it would have been nice to honor Divine that way.

Then you have a Jamaican crab that sang calypso even though I dont think that type of accent or music was a thing at the time period and how did he get to Europe? The mermaid kingdom and King was Greek inspired. There were French people in the film. Occasional dark skin mermaids pop up every now and then. It was just odd
