The Little Mermaid is an upcoming American live-action film which will be distributed by Walt Disney Pictures. It is a remake of the 1989 Walt Disney Animation Studios feature film, The Little Mermaid, loosely based on the fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen. Lin-Manuel Miranda and Marc Platt will produce the film. Lindsay Lohan is currently offering to play the role of Ariel, claiming "I will sing again" on her Instagram page. In addition to supervising the story, Miranda will be teaming up with composer Alan Menken to re-work songs from the original and the two will also be composing new songs for the film.
- This 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.
- During an interview of the live-action version of Beauty and the Beast, Audra McDonald said "If they made a live-action Little Mermaid, , I'd be Ursula. That would be a fun role to play. I would love that. If there's a hat, I'll catapult my name into it however I possibly can.", becoming a possible candidate for the role of the villain.
