"I will sing again, as #ariel #thelittlemermaid," Lohan captioned a split photo showing her alongside the loved mermaid. “@disney approve that. #billcondon directs it along with my sister @alianamusic singing the theme song for the soundtrack."

"Also @kgrahamsfb plays Ursula," the 30-year-old star continued. "Simply because, she is the best. Take one. @disneystudios."

Lohan later edited the caption to simply read, “#thelittlemermaid.”

In the past, Lohan has made no secret of how Ariel would be her dream role.

While Disney has not confirmed the film, Broadway star Lin-Manuel Miranda told Vulture last year that he was in “super-early talks” about the reboot.

The Little Mermaid isn’t the only  classic on Lohan’s mind.

Thirteen years after her memorable role in Mean Girls, she recently told ABC’s The View that she is trying to get a remake going.

"I went to SNL the other day and I was like, harassing Lorne Michaels,” she shared during the Monday morning TV appearance. “I'm like, ‘We have to do [it]. I'll write the treatment -- if Tina Fey’s too busy."

“It will come when the time is right,” she added.

Lohan also talked about her activism work with Syrian refugees in Turkey.

Working closely with children, she says she cried when first confronted with their hardships, but has reveled in her new sense of purpose.

“I’m in such a different place in my work life and headspace, and I have the time now where I can go and do some good,” she explained. “I can get on the ground and see what’s happening, and draw attention to it in a positive way to bring people awareness.”
