Disney Confirms Jacob Tremblay, Melissa McCarthy & More For 'The Little Mermaid'

It’s official – The Little Mermaid cast has been confirmed!

Up until now, the only confirmed stars were Halle Bailey starring as Ariel, and Jonah Hauer-King as Prince Eric.

Now, Disney has officially solidified that Jacob Tremblay has taken on the role of Flounder, Melissa McCarthy will play Ursula, Awkwafina as Scuttle, Daveed Diggs as Sebastian and Javier Bardem as King Triton.

The live action remake of the movie will feature original music from the animated version from Alan Menken, as well new music by Alan and Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Halle Bailey is going to be such an incredible Ariel,” Lin-Manuel told ET back in July. “And getting to write music for these characters that are probably the reason I started writing musicals in the first place, it was actually easier than I thought.”

No release date has been set yet, but given that they had to shut down production earlier this year due to Coronavirus, we may not see it until 2022.
