You can now stream the live-action remake starring Halle Bailey at home.
One of the most magical Disney live-action remakes is finally swimming home.
The Little Mermaid created waves when the film was announced in early 2016. Life-long fans could now take their own kids to the theater to experience the film they constantly chose for family movie nights as children. Released in theaters May 26, 2023, the beloved film made a big splash and was one of the most highly anticipated films of 2023.
After a long wait, the movie has grown legs and made its way to Disney+. Current subscribers can stream the film for no additional charge, and right now there's a special deal for eligible subscribers allowing access to Disney+ for just $2 per month.
'The Little Mermaid'
Enjoy The Little Mermaid right at home. Disney's live-action remake is now streaming on Disney+. Eligible customers can save 75% on the ad-supported tier of Disney+ now through September 20.
Bailey told ET that McCarthy's natural warmth added a layer of nuance to her wickedness in the film. "She has this very kind of maternal trickiness to her when it comes to tricking Ariel in the film, so I got to be consumed in her world and falling into her spell," she explained. "It wasn't so much like mean, mean. It was like [Ariel] looking for a maternal figure."
This interview was conducted prior to the SAG-AFTRA strike, which began on July 13, 2023.
Like all Disney live-action remakes, The Little Mermaid follows the classic storyline with a few modern changes. The Little Mermaid will feature music from Disney's Oscar-winning animated musical classic of 1989 and four new songs.
