The Little Mermaid is one of the many Disney animated classics that will get the live-action treatment in the near future. Directed by Rob Marshall (Mary Poppins Returns) and with the music from Lin-Manuel Miranda, the film is scheduled for production in early 2020. Recently, some new cast members joined the adaptation.
Recently, it was announced that Melissa McCarthy was in talks to play Ursula in the remake, though the deal has not been finalized. Yesterday, it was revealed that Awkwafina (Crazy Rich Asians) and Jacob Tremblay (Room) were also in talks to star in the film. Awkwafina will play a gender-swapped version of Scuttle while Tremblay will play Flounder.
Even though the supporting cast seems to be filling out, there is still no word on who will play Ariel and Prince Eric.
Who do you think should play the lead in The Little Mermaid remake? Are you excited for this new adaptation?
