1. Disney debuts ‘The Little Mermaid’ live-action teaser with Halle Bailey

On Friday, September 9, Disney released a first-look teaser for the upcoming live-action film The Little Mermaid. Featuring Halle Bailey as Princess Ariel, the clip begins with a splash of underwater wildlife before providing a first look at the Little Mermaid gracefully flowing through the water. She then finds a peek of the sun and swims up to it for a closer look. Subsequently, Bailey is then heard singing, “Out of the sea …,” before viewers see her face for the first time. “Wish I could be, part of that world,” she continues to sing “Part of Your World” — a song that was featured in the original over three decades ago.

The movie is slated for a May 2023 release and is a reimagined version of the 1989 animated classic. It tells the story of Ariel, who eventually falls in love with the human Prince Eric, played by Jonah Hauer-King. Melissa McCarthy plays the role of the villainous Ursula, while Javier Bardem assumes the role of Ariel’s dad, King Triton. Daveed Diggs voices Sebastian, Jacob Tremblay voices Flounder, and Awkwafina voices Scuttle.

4. King Charles officially names William and Kate Prince and Princess of Wales

Britain’s new King, Charles III has named his son, Williams, and his wife, Kate, Prince and Princess of Wales. The King announced it as he addressed the United Kingdom for the first time since Queen Elizabeth II died at the age of 96. “As my Heir, William now assumes the Scottish titles which have meant so much to me. He succeeds me as Duke of Cornwall and takes on the responsibilities for the Duchy of Cornwall which I have undertaken for more than five decades,” he said.

According to him, he wishes the Duke and Duchess of Sussex well as they pursue other things abroad. Charles’ first address came barely 24 hours after the demise of Queen Elizabeth II.

5. Galtier heaps praise on ‘great professional’ Neymar after lightning start to the season

Christophe Galtier has again heaped praise on Neymar after he grabbed the winner in his side’s 1-0 win over Brest on Saturday. “I have always considered him to be one of the best players on the planet, but I have a much more informed and sharpened eye on his daily investment. Before, during, and after training sessions,” Galtier told reporters. “He is very invested on a personal level but also in the interest of the team. He is a great professional and a great player. I discover him with pleasure every day.”

Neymar has begun the season in scintillating form, netting 10 goals in just nine games. The Brazilian has also provided PSG with a creative spark, chipping in with seven assists. Galtier will be hoping that Neymar can continue his flying start to the season when his side takes on Maccabi Haifa in the Champions League on Wednesday. The Little Mermaid Teaser
