Halle Bailey’s body double shares behind-the-scenes moments from ‘The Little Mermaid’

BTS look at ‘The Little Mermaid’ and Jodi Benson’s ‘stamp of approval’

The Little Mermaid had many singing “Part of Your World” over the Memorial Day weekend. Now, Halle Bailey’s body double shares some behind-the-scenes moments via TikTok.

Yasmin Harrison played an integral part as Bailey’s body double completing “camera-blocking for the role,” which means she’s responsible for creating the character’s movements before the cameras roll.

In a video that captured the moment Harrison was on the rock for the hit number “Part of Your World,” she captioned, “Living my childhood dream of being a Disney Princess,”

While Harrison was the first to test out the icy waters, she also worked with Alvin Ailey — the stories choreographer— as one of the core dancers in the movie. Growing up as a fan of the film, as reported in her various TIkToks, Harrison documented her journey from transformations into Ariel, dance scenes, and photos of her and Bailey, all available on her TikTok page.

While behind-the-scenes moments of the movie are taking over social media, fans of the iconic film also pointed out a cameo from Jodi Benson, who was the original voice of “The Little Mermaid.” If you missed the moment, Benson was the food stand owner during the food market scene.

“The Little Mermaid” has received major backlash for casting Bailey; in response, she got much support from fans, including Benson.

“She told me how proud she was of me and how I’m handling everything, and encouraged me to just go for it,” Bailey said of Benson to the Los Angeles Times. “I appreciate her for being so warm and welcoming to me because she’s the GOAT, and it was important to me to get her stamp of approval.”

“The Little Mermaid” opened on Memorial Day Weekend, bringing in $11.5 million according to Variety.
