Disney’s The Little Mermaid is coming to theaters May 26, 2023. The film stars singer and actress Halle Bailey as Ariel and will be directed by Oscar nominee Rob Marshall (“Chicago,” “Mary Poppins Returns”).

The plot synopsis for the film can be seen right down below.

“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.
