Disney released a new featurette for the live-action movie, The Little Mermaid. The film stars singer and actress Halle Bailey as Ariel and Jonah Hauer-King as Eric. Daveed Diggs will voice Sebastian, Awkwafina will voice Scuttle, and Jacob Tremblay will voice Flounder. Javier Bardem plays King Triton, and Melissa McCarthy plays Ursula. Rob Marshall will direct this film, releasing in theaters on May 26th, 2023.


Ariel is 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 discover 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.
