The Little Mermaid Reboot
It is no secret that Disney is rebooting one of its most beloved classic animated films The Little Mermaid (1989). Now, over 30 years after the original captured our hearts, the release of a live-action remake is making waves!
Of course, it takes a host of people to bring a live-action film to life. The cast of the new Little Mermaid movie was revealed last year. Most notably, Halle Bailey will play Ariel, and Melissa McCarthy will play Ursula the Sea Witch. Luca’s Jacob Tremblay will play Flounder.
I (Katie P) am especially excited to see Daveed Diggs as Sebastian as he stole the show for me in Hamilton. He is sure to bring a fun twist to everyone’s favorite crustacean.
We also know that Rob Marshal is directing. You may have seen other Disney films he has directed like Mary Poppins Returns and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
Excitingly, Lin Manual Miranda is collaborating on the film’s music. The film is going to include at least some of the music from the animated film, but it is also going to feature all new music.
Here is a first look at Disney’s theatrical trailer for the film. You can watch it right here in the post.
D23 reminded us today that the movie appears in theatres on May 26, 2023!
