In the images Halle is in a wet suite and Jonah is in casual shorts and a tee. Not sure whether the pair are rehearsing an upcoming beach scene or if this live-action release is going the modern-casual route!
What we do know is that filming is expected to wrap this Summer. The project is currently in Sardinia but according to DisInsider it’s also been reported that shooting is taking place in Sardinia.
The film will also star Melissa McCarthy as Ursula, and Javier Bardem as King Triton. Also set to star is Emily Coates, Jessica Alexander, Jude Akuwudike, Noma Dumezweni, Russell Balogh, and Adrian Christopher.
