With the courtesy of Walt Disney Studios and director Rob Marshall, Disney’s ‘The Little Mermaid’ is expected to have a live-action musical remake.
The release date of the little mermaid remake is not yet confirmed, but the production is supposed to start in April 2020, so there is no official trailer available online.
The cast of underwater live-action-CGI extravaganza, the little mermaid, might include, Jonah Hauer King as prince Eric (romantic lead), Halle Bailey (previously seen in dog’s way home) as Ariel, Javier Bardem as king Triton, Melissa McCarthy as sea witch Ursula, Awkwafina as Scuttle the Seagull and Lin-Manuel Miranda is expected for voicing.
The plot may be or may not be similar to Disney’s animated movie, which is a story of a mermaid with a mesmerizing voice who gave away her gift to an evil underwater witch, so she can experience the world outside water and also wanted to find her true love. This means mermaid princess ‘Ariel’ will trade her beautiful voice for a pair of legs to unite with the gorgeous price ‘Eric.’
If the pattern of other animated Disney movies remakes to the live-action film, like Aladdin and The Lion King, is followed, the little mermaid live-action remake can be expected to follow a similar trajectory in the 21st century.
The little mermaid is a story of a mermaid princess who is fascinated with life on land. So, to relive the 90s, Disney is in a phase of making live-action movies. And therefore, after 30 years, Disney is planning a live-action musical remake of the little mermaid, which might include many of the beloved songs of the animated classics, like Sebastian the Crab’s ‘under the sea’ and ‘part of your world’ by original composers Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, and also will include some new songs from Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda.
