While strolling the step-and-repeat in Hollywood, the star posed with Javier Bardem, who plays Ariel’s father King Triton in the movie.
The 54-year-old actor looked handsome in a deep navy blue suit, which he teamed with a button-up black shirt and shiny black dress shoes.
In a cover story for Ebony, Halle revealed that playing Ariel ‘…is all a part of God’s plan for me.’
Halle has been a star since she was a teenager, performing as one half of the R&B singing group Chloe x Halle with sister Chloe Bailey.
Landing the role of Ariel has allowed her to spread her wings and explore her individuality.
‘It was the first thing I did by myself, independently,’ Halle revealed to the outlet. ‘I had to move across the world. Suddenly I was in London, and I was by myself. It really forced me to grow up.
‘The whole filming experience was insane. It was the most intense, excruciatingly beautiful experience of my life. I mean, physically, mentally — all of the above,’ the actress admitted.
‘But once I got through it, I was like, wow. [I was] really impressed with myself, because I’d never done something like that before.’
