Disney's live-action 'The Little Mermaid' TV and film projects

It was bound to happen at some point. Disney is considering making a live-action version of The Little Mermaid. They are already in talks with major Hollywood producers and writers and the film will be an entirely new take on the story. The company has not officially given it the green-light though. I'm anxious to see the underwater special effects. Plus, I think Jodi Benson should play Queen Athena, Ariel's mother from the 2008 prequel.

I think it is high time Disney did a live action Aristocats.

Think of all the cat memes they could use/create with that film concept. They'd make millions on reaction gifs and would easily be able to create viral cat videos to promote the film.

Lily James, who played the title character in the live-action remake of Cinderella, last year actually said that she would like to play Ursula.

That actually might work because she could also play Ursula's alter-ago Vanessa since she is a very pretty young-woman. Plus, I've seen clips of her playing a bad girl in some independent films.

Ahh yes, the movie that taught young girls that if you want the man of your dreams all you need to do is murder someone.

LOL no, but this one would definitely be interesting to see adapted.

So, will Ariel show her boobs in the movie or what? Like "Splash" starring Daryl Hannah with Tom Hanks.

OH god that would be epic.

What I want to see though(even though I have no freaking clue how they'd pull it off) is a live action Finding Nemo.

Kinda funny that the other live action movies so far have been pretty faithful adaptions of their animated counterparts while this one will be based on the original more darker version

Universal Pictures is working on their own version of the story too.

So like The Jungle Book two versions ? Disney doing live action of the animated movie while Universal is doing the original story ? Ah okay the Disney news is new while the Universal one has been in development for a while I see now

Oh, now that you post that I think I remember reading that before. I hope they use the original ending, it's so much better.

Ariel had a clam shell bra in the animated film but no underwear when she gained legs...

I would however give bonus points to Disney if they filmed a topless actress with cgi markers so they could flexibly choose to add a bra or not pending on the market.

I want this to work.

I doubt it will. Being faithful to source material and Disney don't work too well. But stuff for kids shouldn't be too harsh either.

That's the Universal one some people here were talking about.
