Halle Berry could not be happier for Halle Bailey, who is chosen to star as Ariel in the new The Little Mermaid in Disney’s upcoming live-action remake. The news came around this very week that one-half of singing duo Chloe x Halle, will play Ariel in the anticipated movie. This remake will feature old and new songs from Hamilton creator Lin Manuel Miranda.

Many people confused the fact that the actresses share almost the similar name. The names are not only similar but also very confusing. A fan of the stars admitted his mistake and said: “But I got a little happy for a second think Halle Berry was doing the voice of the little, but congratulations [sic].”

Another replied, “thank you….for ruining another one of my child-hood Disney movie memories. Yet…another movie I won’t be wasting my money on. When you care more about casting African Americans in movies for the publicity than the quality of a movie, it’s just sad.”
