Disney’s live-action reimagining of The Little Mermaid, which grossed over $542 million at the global box office, will premiere on Disney+ on September 6, 2023.
Disney+ subscribers will be able to access unique bonus content, including Oscar® winner Javier Bardem (No Country for Old Men) as King Triton performing the song Impossible Child with music by multiple Academy Award® winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin) and lyrics by three-time Tony Award® winner Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton, In the Heights); Passing the Dinglehopper, and Under the Sea – Song Breakdown.
The Little Mermaid is the beloved story of Ariel, a beautiful and spirited young mermaid with a thirst for adventure. The youngest of King Triton’s daughters and the most defiant, Ariel longs to find out more about the world beyond the sea and, while visiting the surface, falls for the dashing Prince Eric. While mermaids are forbidden from interacting with humans, Ariel must follow her heart. She makes a deal with the evil sea witch, Ursula, which gives her a chance to experience life on land but ultimately places her life – and her father’s crown – in jeopardy.
