Earlier this week, Disney released its latest live-action adaption of the animated classic, “The Little Mermaid”, on digital platforms including Amazon, Vudu, Apple and others to purchase.
“The Little Mermaid” is visionary filmmaker Rob Marshall’s live-action reimagining of Disney’s beloved animated musical classic, the 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 to interact 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.
Disney has released three new behind-the-scene clips from the new digital release:
“The Little Mermaid” is directed by Rob Marshall with a screenplay by David Magee, and is produced by Marc Platt, Lin-Manuel Miranda, John DeLuca and Rob Marshall.
“The Little Mermaid” is out now on digital platforms to purchase and will be coming to 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD on September 19th 2023. The film will be released on Disney+ after the physical release, though no release date has yet been announced.
