Over the last few years, Disney has developed a habit of rebooting animated classics as live-action films. Among the movies that have received reboots are Beauty and the Beast, Mulan, Lion King, Aladdin, and Dumbo.

2023’s The Little Mermaid builds on the legacy of the original 1989 classic, continuing to bring the story to life through merchandising, parks and resorts attractions, video games, books, and theater productions for millions of fans around the world.

The release of the live action The Little Mermaid has boosted Disney’s existing library resulting in more views for The Little Mermaid animated films on Disney+.

The movie was wonderful and my family and I enjoyed it very much. My son, as a child, did not liked the cartoon saying that it was corny. I personally prefer the live action myself and will recommend it to everyone. I think it's ashamed and pathetic how some people call use the phrase WOKE and have no idea what the true definition is. Pathetic! TLM the best! ‍♀️♥️

I went to the movies to see it and it was slow moving and not happy and invigorating like the original. Took my grandchildren and did not keep their attention like the original. I am done going to see remakes. Especially not going to see Snow White as am tired of Disney and it’s woke remakes

We watched The Little Mermaid on Disney+. The story was fairly close to the animated feature. It was a better movie than the critics gave it credit for being. The actress who played Ariel has a beautiful voice and played the part well.
