Halle Bailey & Jonah Hauer-King Seem to Be Filming Iconic 'Little Mermaid' Scene in These New Set Photos!

We have our first photos of Halle Bailey and Jonah Hauer-King on The Little Mermaid set together!

The two co-stars, who play Ariel the Mermaid and Prince Eric, were seen shooting what appears to be an iconic scene on Tuesday (June 29) in Sardinia, Italy. Noma Dumezweni was also seen on set that day.

We cannot confirm, but fans seem to think the pair may have been filming “Kiss the Girl,” one of the famous scenes from the original Disney movie! “Kiss the Girl” happens when Prince Eric and Ariel go for a romantic boat ride together. The song is famously sung by Sebastian the Crab.
