Everywhere Halle Bailey goes these days, little girls are running up to her for hugs. They don’t know her as one-half of the highly successful rhythm and blues duo Chloe x Halle, they just know that her face is on the poster for the newly released “The Little Mermaid.”

To them, she’s a princess and they simply want to be near her. This is a complete 180 degree turnaround to the online trolls that moaned when it was announced that the 23-year-old had won the coveted role.
