Continuing the #Disney100 celebration with this new look at #TheLittleMermaid! Just 100 days until it arrives in theaters!

Disney’s The Little Mermaid is coming to theaters May 26, 2023.

“The Little Mermaid,” visionary filmmaker Rob Marshall’s live-action reimagining of the studio’s Oscar®-winning animated musical classic, opens exclusively in theaters nationwide May 26, 2023. “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 film stars singer and actress Halle Bailey (“grown-ish”) as Ariel; Tony Award® winner Daveed Diggs (“Hamilton,” “Snowpiercer”) as the voice of Sebastian; Jacob Tremblay (“Luca,” “Room”) as the voice of Flounder; Awkwafina (“Raya and the Last Dragon”) as the voice of Scuttle; Jonah Hauer-King (“A Dog’s Way Home”) as Prince Eric; Art Malik (“Homeland”) as Sir Grimsby; Noma Dumezweni (“Mary Poppins Returns”) as Queen Selina; with Oscar® winner Javier Bardem (“No Country for Old Men,” “Being the Ricardos”) as King Triton; and two-time Academy Award® nominee Melissa McCarthy (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?” “Bridesmaids”) as Ursula.

“The Little Mermaid” is directed by Oscar® nominee Rob Marshall (“Chicago,” “Mary Poppins Returns”), and written by two-time Oscar nominee David Magee (“Life of Pi,” “Finding Neverland”), with a live-action story adaptation by David Magee, Rob Marshall, and two-time Emmy winner John DeLuca (“Tony Bennett: An American Classic”), based on the short story by Hans Christian Andersen, and the Disney animated film by Ron Clements and John Musker. The film is produced by two-time Emmy® winner Marc Platt (“Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert,” “Grease Live!”), three-time Tony Award® winner Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Hamilton,” “In the Heights”), Rob Marshall, and John DeLuca, with Jeffrey Silver (“The Lion King”) serving as executive producer. The score is by multiple Academy Award® winner Alan Menken (“Beauty and the Beast,” “Aladdin”), who won two Oscars® for the music in the animated version of “The Little Mermaid,” with music supervised and produced by Mike Higham (“Mary Poppins Returns,” “Into the Woods”). Music is by Alan Menken, lyrics are by Howard Ashman and new lyrics are by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

    Ursula’s giggle is the best thing in this clip. Can’t wait to see the new trailer!

    SAIU FAMÍLIA!! So falta o trailer agora❤❤❤

    That scene where Dom Toretto shows up and told Ariel , “We’re family. Ride or die, remember?” Totally gave me the chills and had me shed a tear.

    I’m really excited to see how Melissa McCarthy does Ursula. Considering how she went down with the ship in the animated version, I wonder how they will do it in the live-action version

      @GamingFanactic911 Nothing will be as bad as Mulan.

    • DigiDestined558 says:

      Ooooh…hard disagree. Aladdin was REALLY BAD. It was fine the first time, but I must ask, have you watched it since? It truly gets worse upon rewatch.

    • MSR says:

      Asuming how the world is now, Ariel will fight with her in the final state, not Erick, my guess is that Ariel will learn how to fight on the palace, then in the final round Ursula and Ariel will be in a final round, and maybe the animals will end Ursula this time, which is a common sense, nature will take all. I like that ending, and if there is a plot twist that Erick will turn on merman this time, that will be a good way to tell this story nowadays.

    • The_Screaming_Cherry says:

      @GamingFanactic911 but sadly, it’s unlikely it will be any good, at the time the Aladdin remake came out, Disney was slightly better than they were now and looking at the stuff Disney pushes out nowadays, the movie would have to get VERY lucky to do well, but it’s unlikely

    • GamingFanactic911 says:

      @The_Screaming_Cherry honestly this movie could be as good as Aladdin especially when it comes to the music. I doubt this will be as bad as The Lion King at least I hope not and it most definitely won’t be as bad as Mulan LOL

    This is exactly what I was expecting! The ocean scenes are beautiful, and Melissa sure seems to be taking her role seriously!!!
    I can’t wait for May!!

    I really like that it looks bright and fantastical. Lion King failed IMO because it tried to stick too tightly to a “realistic” approach. This Looks and feels like a fairytale. Making it more “animated” was a good call on a design front.

  7. Before Movies Sucked! says:

    I love the part where Ariel starts singing James Brown’s 1968 classic, “Say It Loud!” and then they all start saying it loud. So Danish! I’m literally shaking with joy!

  8. adey126 says:

    The underwater part looks nice clean and bright. Love her playing with the blowfish and jellyfish. The Ursula laugh is spot on. Just need to brighten the lagoon part.

  9. Mike H says:

    I love the part where Ariel yelled “I’m Batman.” Sent chills down my spine.

      @May The actions taken by Disney is telling. Why remove the comment section? Why hid the downvotes? Why remove comments? If the movie is so great then it can stand on it’s own. Disney is doing damage control. 15,000 like/ 42000 dislikes.

    • May says:

      @Raymond Foster you’re confusing YouTube likes with reality. That’s the problem with social media, y’all watch these conservatives YouTubers and think they’re tell you what everyone is thinking. The real reality is most people don’t care. The only upset people are chronically online adults. The movie will probably do GREAT at the box office. And that matters more than what YouTube comments say 😂 but yeah stay in the echo chamber of the comment section.

    • Raymond Foster says:

      @May Hate is a strong word. People are allowed to disagree. Regardless of how you feel about someone’s complaint, they are allowed to have it and to express it. The ratio to the video is about 12,000 likes to 32,000 dislikes. The comment section for the last one was turned off and currently comments that don’t agree with the video are being removed. The general public has soundly rejected this type of art.

    • May says:

      @Raymond Foster like I said, y’all thought you would have something to complain about 🤣 it’s lowkey funny. That’s why most of you can’t even form a proper hate comment, there’s nothing to hate on

    • Raymond Foster says:

      @May Y’all still mad about people expressing their opinions and feelings about art that they disagree with????? Free speech, deal with it. LOL
