More than two years after its original announcement, Disney has finally announced the official release date for the upcoming live-action remake of The Little Mermaid.

According to numerous reports, the studio is now planning to release the remake on May 26, 2023, almost four years after the project was initially revealed. Halle Bailey will take the lead as Ariel, with renowned actor Javier Bardem and Snowpiercer veteran Daveed Diggs taking on the roles of King Triton and Sebastien respectively. Shang-Chi‘s Awkwafina will return to Disney as Scuttle, and comedic actress Melissa McCarthy portraying Ursula. Jacob Tremblay and Jonah Hauer-King round out the cast as Flounder and Prince Eric.

Adding to a long line of live-action remakes from Disney, The Little Mermaid will be co-produced by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Marc Platt, Marshall and John DeLuca. The original animated film’s composer Alan Menken will return to write new songs and music.

Elsewhere in entertainment, Marvel Studios has released the first trailer for Hawkeye.
