After its world premiere in Los Angeles earlier this month, The Little Mermaid remake received mixed reviews from critics.
Disney’s latest film is a live-action reproduction of the 1989 animated film and is set to cause quite a stir when it premieres in the US over Memorial Day weekend.
Current forecasts show that the blockbuster grossed $110m (£87m) in its four-day opening weekend, according to Deadline.
And while some pundits have claimed it’s close to being “the best Disney live-action movie” while praising Halle Bailey’s performance as Ariel, others insisted he “can’t shirk” his animated legacy.
DiscussingFilm’s Felicia Wade wrote on Twitter: “With “#TheLittleMermaid” it’s almost Disney’s best live action film, but it still has problems with the villains.
“Halle Bailey IS Ariel and I literally had goosebumps throughout her performance.” “This is a little mermaid retelling like you’ve never seen before.”
Erik Davis of Fandango and Rotten Tomatoes agreed, “Disney’s #TheLittleMermaid is definitely one of the better live-action adaptations.”

“Halle Bailey pours out incredible emotion on Ariel, and I get goosebumps watching her as Melissa McCarthy’s Ursula and Daveed Diggs’ Sebastian steal scenes all day.”
Zoë Rose Bryant, writer at Loud And Clear Reviews, wrote: “#TheLittleMermaid is a live-action remake that maintains the heart and soul of the story we know and love and enhances it even further with impeccable star performance by Halle Bailey – she was born for the big screen and that’s why this new version is worth seeing.”
But Insider’s Kirsten Acuna wasn’t as impressed, tweeting: “#TheLittleMermaid is packed with some great performances from Halle Bailey and Melissa McCarthy, but it’s mostly a paint-by-numbers remake that’s not as good as the animated masterpiece.” .’
Simon Thompson, writing for publications such as Forbes and Variety, said: “#TheLittleMermaid is endearing but uneven and lacks the magic of the animated classic, but there are plenty of creative touches from Rob Marshall to delight audiences.
“Halle Bailey and Melissa McCarthy are great.” “Daveed Diggs and Awkwafina provide solid comic relief.”
Courtney Howard of Variety The AV Club and Fresh Fiction concluded, “#TheLittleMermaid: Charming but incredibly spotty.” Halle Bailey, Jonah Hauer-King, Melissa McCarthy and Javier Bardem poured their hearts and souls into a film who can’t escape his animated legacy.
“It’s best if it’s slightly over the top but limits its fantasy elements for no reason.”
It stars Halle as Ariel, Melissa McCarthy as Ursula, Javier Bardem as King Triton, Daveed Diggs as Sebastian and Jonah Hauer-King as Prince Eric. Directed by Rob Marshall.
According to the official synopsis, The Little Mermaid tells the story of Ariel – the youngest of King Triton’s many daughters.
The remake of Divided: The Little Mermaid received mixed reviews from critics (Halle Bailey pictured as Ariel) after its world premiere in Los Angeles earlier this month.
Wow! Current forecasts show that the blockbuster grossed $110m (£87m) in its four-day opening weekend, according to Deadline
The “bright and spirited young mermaid with an adventurous spirit” – who longs to “find out more about the world beyond the sea” – takes a trip to the surface and meets Prince Eric.
“Following her heart, she makes a deal with the evil sea witch Ursula to experience life on land,” reads the synopsis.
The iconic songs from The Little Mermaid soundtrack have had their lyrics changed to express approval of the upcoming live-action remake of the 1989 Disney film.
Composer Alan Menken told Vanity Fair last month, “There are some lyrical changes in Kiss the Girl because people have become very sensitive to the idea.” [Prince Eric] would force himself to do so in any way [Ariel].
The lyrics to the original song – which encourages Prince Eric to kiss Ariel before it’s too late and without asking her consent – include the refrain lines, “Yes, you want her.” Check them out, you know that you do it Maybe she wants you too. There is a way to ask her. It doesn’t need a word. Not a single word. Go ahead and kiss the girl.’
Menken added, “We reworked some lines in Poor Unfortunate Souls that might somehow make young girls feel like they shouldn’t be speaking out of line.”
“Although Ursula is clearly manipulating Ariel into giving up her vote.”
In the original song, Ursula sings, “The men up there don’t like big talk.” They think a girl who gossips is boring!
“But on land ladies prefer not to say a word
“And after all, my dear, what good is idle chatter? Come on, they’re not that keen on conversation. True gentlemen avoid it when they can
“But they rave and rave and flatter. About a lady who’s withdrawn. It is she who shuts up who gets a man.
The 1989 soundtrack’s lyrics were written by the late Howard Ashman and composed by Menken.
Menken has joined producer Lin-Manuel Miranda to write new music for the remake and rework the original songs.
