Casting Is Currently Underway For Ariel’s Sisters in Live-Action ‘The Little Mermaid’
As we’ve previously reported here at MickeyBlog, Disney is currently working on a live-action adaptation of classic animated film The Little Mermaid. According to a recent piece on cheatsheet.com, Disney is currently casting for the role of Ariel’s sisters in the upcoming reboot.
As anyone who has watched The Little Mermaid and the sequel will tell you Ariel has quite a lot of mermaid sisters, Attina, Alana, Adella, Aquata, Arista, and Andrina can all be seen in the original film and it would seem from recent casting news that Disney will fill these roles in the live-action film.
Fans are hoping that one of the picks will be Chloe Bailey who’s sister Halle has already been cast in the role of Ariel. Other fan favorites include Zendaya and Keke Palmer.
Walt Disney Studios have been pretty tight-lipped when it comes to casting however Melissa McCarthy has been confirmed in the role of Ursula with Awkwafina to portray Scuttle and Wonder’s Jacob Tremblay as Flounder. Disney also recently confirmed the Jonah Hauer-King will play Ariel’s love interest Prince Eric.
So when can we expect to see the live-action version of The Little Mermaid in theaters? The film will be directed by Rob Marshall and is expect to start filming in the Caribbean in April. Disney has not announced a premiere date as of yet.
