The live-action adaptation, “The Little Mermaid” is ready to hit theaters, and the film officially releases in the USA on May 26, 2023. The makers have high expectations for it, but there are lower expectations from the audience due to controversies surrounding the casting of the film and its unimpressive effects.
“The Little Mermaid,” directed by Rob Marshall and written by David Magee, is a captivating adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s beloved 1837 fairy tale. The film features a cast including Halle Bailey, Jonah Hauer-King, Daveed Diggs, Awkwafina, Javier Bardem, Jacob Tremblay, Noma Dumezweni, and Melissa McCarthy. Produced by Walt Disney Pictures and Marc Platt Productions, it will be distributed worldwide by Walt Disney Studios.
Is The Little Mermaid 2023 on Netflix?
No, Halle Bailey’s “The Little Mermaid” (2023) will never be streaming on Netflix as it is an official Walt Disney film. As a Disney film, it has been confirmed that it will only be released for streaming on Disney’s streaming platform, Disney+, under Disney’s streaming policy. And according to reports, it will be available for streaming on Disney+ after 60 days from its theatrical release. Therefore, there is no chance, even 1%, that “The Little Mermaid” (2023) will be on Netflix, and Netflix users will not be able to watch it on their platform at any time.
In addition to “The Little Mermaid” (2023), 2018’s “The Little Mermaid” is still available to watch on Netflix, although that movie is considered to be one of the critical disasters in the industry. If you are a Netflix user and have Halle Bailey’s “The Little Mermaid” on your watchlist, then watching it at your nearby theaters would be the best option. As a Disney live-action film, it offers the best experience with luxurious effects and screenplay that surpass the limitations of watching it on a screen.
