The live-action version of The Little Mermaid has a release date, but the main question is that will it be released in the year 2021? Take a look at it.
The updated version of the cartoon classic will hit theatres on May 26, 2023, according to Disney. It’s unknown whether it’ll be released concurrently on Disney+, but for the time being, all forthcoming Disney films are having an exclusive theatrical run.
To commemorate the completion of production on Disney’s newest remake, lead actress Halle Bailey shared a first peek at her through Ariel in The Little Mermaid in early July 2021.
“After auditioning for this film when I was 18 just about to turn 19, to now finishing filming through a pandemic when I turned 21,” she wrote on Twitter. “We have finally made it… I feel so grateful to have experienced this film in all of its glory.”
So, in preparation for our return to the sea, here’s all you need to know about just the live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid.
As previously stated, Disney had set a May 26, 2023, worldwide release for such a live-action version of The Little Mermaid.
It’s scheduled for a theatrical release, and as we’ve learned over the last year, anything can happen. After several setbacks, shooting on the new movie is already complete, with such a shoot scheduled for January to July 2021.
The film’s release date of 2023 is a little later than we anticipated, and we’re confident it will be well worth waiting.
As previously stated, Ariel will be played by Halle Bailey, one-half of the R&B duet CHLOE X HALLE.
Jodi Benson, who played Ariel in the original, endorsed Bailey’s casting. “I believe what counts most is a character’s essence,” she added. “What matters most in a character is what they bring to the table in terms of heart and spirit. The ability to convey a storey is, in my opinion, the most essential aspect of a film.”
