The world has changed a lot in the 34 years between Disney’s animated version of The Little Mermaid and the studio’s new live-action remake, and the new film reflects some of those changes. Halle Bailey, who stars as Ariel in the remake, says that, while the story itself remains essentially the same, the characters have been rewritten to give them — and their relationships — a lot more depth than they had in the first film.
