live action little mermaid movie

The live-action adaptation of Disney’s famous animated picture “The Little Mermaid” will debut in theaters during Memorial Day Weekend 2023 (May 26th, 2023) before being released on Disney+ at a later date.

“The Little Mermaid,” directed by Rob Marshall, returns to Disney with a live-action adaptation of the animation classic. Halle Bailey, a multitalented singer and performer who you may recognize from the “Black-ish” spinoff sitcom “Grown-Ish,” plays the lead character. A remarkable cast, including Awkwafina, Daveed Diggs, Jacob Tremblay, Javier Bardem, and Melissa McCarthy as Ursula, joins Halle Bailey in the film.

Filming began early this year in the United Kingdom and Italy.

If you can’t wait until May 2023, you can watch the original animated version on Disney+ right now.
