However, the first look at the film directed by Rob Marshall revived the wave of criticism and cruel ridicule against the 22-year-old American actress, who is also known for being a great singer and who, along with her sister Chloe Bailey, is part of the R&B duo Chloe x Halle.
Netizens claim that the design of the character presented in the 1989 animated film was not respected and they accuse the Disney company of succumbing to forced inclusion in order to please minorities.
