  • Disney seriously considering Making Animated Feature Film for Little Mermaid

Disney has had a serious pitch for remaking Little Mermaid into a feature film to add to its line-up of other feature remakes.

Remember the 1989 animated classic tale of a little mermaid named Ariel who gives up her voice to fall in love with a prince who takes too long to realize who she is and almost loses her.

Yeah, that really great animated feature was Disney’s hit animated classic Little Mermaid which was loosely based on  Danish fairy tale of the same name by Hans Christian Andersen. The movie received positive reviews and was the stepping stone for many other animated classic to be made like Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin. 

Now, Disney is reworking a lot of its animated features into feature films. With the success of movies like Maleficent, Jungle Book and Alice in Wonderland and successful if not popular adaptations of Cinderella, the studio plunged in deep to announce a line-up of animated classics which will be rebooted to feature films including Tim Burton’s version of Dumbo, Cruella de Vil’s origin story starring Emma Stone and Winnie the Pooh. CGI animation will play a huge part in making these movies. 

That is why, a team has strongly pitched the idea of making Little Mermaid into a feature film as well. Given the success that the underwater movies have brought to Disney and the remake of Jungle Book might have changed what the studio thinks of remaking the movie. 

There is however the issue of competing with Universal’s live action movie for the same title. Universal has also been putting out great entertainment movies and it has already out Chloe Grace Moretz name to the project. In addition to that, Disney will also face the challenge of depicting the story in this modern day.

The original darker version of Andersen is seemingly more real that the Disney version of the tale in 1989. Depicting a girl losing her identity to chase after a man and then almost dying for him might seem too far-fetched. So it is the battle of studios and how they depict the story if Disney decides to remake a feature film for the Little Mermaid, according to Deadline
