The Little Mermaid: September 6th

Rob Marshall's 2023 film comes as the first live-action adaptation of the Walt Disney animation film of the same name, which released back in 1989. Keeping alive the ethos of the original source material, which is Hans Christian Andersen's 1837 fairy tale of the same name, The Little Mermaid follows King Tritone's youngest daughter Ariel's quest to learn more about the world that exists beyond the sea. When Ariel, the spirited and beautiful mermaid, saves the charming human Prince Eric from a shipwreck and falls for him, she must make a deal with evil sea witch Ursula to trade her voice for human legs.
