The Little Mermaid, visionary filmmaker Rob Marshall’s live-action reimagining of the studio’s Oscar®-
winning animated musical classic, opens exclusively in cinemas May 25, 2023. 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 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.
Directed by Oscar nominee Rob Marshall and produced by two-time Emmy winner Marc Platt.
