But despite this, the 23-year-old has received praise for her performance, with The Guardian’s Ellen E Jones calling her “as naturally Disneyfied as actual human beings are.”

“Bailey is both the one absolute triumph of the finished film and the best storyline for this entire live-action remake enterprise in one brilliant mermaidcore package,” he added.

“If these movies are going to have any purpose beyond being nostalgia-driven cashmere, it has to be to allow all children, not just white ones, to see themselves as inhabitants of the Magic Kingdom.”
