There are loads of things we can all disagree on, especially when it comes to something as precious as a childhood memory. That being said, It makes sense that Disney's latest casting choice sparked quite a controversy by choosing Halle Bailey to play Ariel in "The Little Mermaid" live-action movie remake. Some were convinced something's really fishy and took the scientific approach to explain why the casting is wrong to portray this Disney character, others were really excited about the first black mermaid. So were these people, who took the Internet by storm and flooded it with fan art dedicated to the famous character, supporting the new cast. Scroll down to check these cool drawings and get hyped for the new Disney movie remake.

Beautifully done, but it's really weird (in my opinion) to have such distinct "knees" if her bottom half is a fish...

I like how this is more natural fishy instead of a bikini top.

I personally think a black woman playing little mermaid is absolutely fine. She looks beautiful. The storyline will need a bit of change though because it was during a time when black people were treated as slaves and abused. I am curious to know what the storyline will be.

Again with the very obvious knee-bending. If the bottom half is fish-like, shouldn't it be more supple? I'm not saying that the artwork isn't any good. In fact, it's beautifully done. It's just that one detail that doesn't sit right with me.

Hey Just Curious, see that pink coral in the background on the left? It has a special message, just for you.

Stop hating! They worked really hard on this one. What happened to inclusion?
