Movie: The Little Mermaid
Post created on 4:14 pm
“The Little Mermaid” is the beloved story of Ariel, a beautiful and spirited young mermaid with a thirst for adventure. The youngest of King Triton’s daughters and the most defiant, Ariel longs to find out more about the world beyond the sea and, while visiting the surface, falls for the dashing Prince Eric.
While mermaids are forbidden to interact with humans, Ariel must follow her heart. She makes a deal with the evil sea witch, Ursula, which gives her a chance to experience life on land but ultimately places her life – and her father’s crown – in jeopardy.
The movie is an American live-action musical film which distributed by Walt Disney Pictures. It is a remake of the 1989 Walt Disney Animation Studios feature film of the same name, and loosely based on the fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen. The movie was produced by Marc Platt, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Rob Marshall and John DeLuca. The film is scheduled to be released on May 26, 2023.

The movie directed by Rob Marshall is the fourth collaboration between Rob Marshall and Disney after Marshall previously directed Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Into the Woods, and Mary Poppins Returns.
It is also the sixth Disney Princess remake, after Maleficent, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and Mulan.
