Disney's The Little Mermaid coming to Disney+ on Sep 6

Disney's latest live-action rendition of The Little Mermaid will soon make its digital debut on Disney+ on Sep 6. Following its theatre release this May, the film managed to make waves at the global box office, raking in an impressive US$542 million.

For those who missed the cinematic experience or wish to relive it, Disney+ subscribers will be treated to exclusive bonus features alongside the film. Notably, there's a special performance by Oscar-winner Javier Bardem, who plays King Triton, singing "Impossible Child". The song is a collaboration between acclaimed composer Alan Menken, known for his work on classics like “Beauty and the Beast” and “Aladdin”, and lyricist Lin-Manuel Miranda, the genius behind "Hamilton" and "In the Heights".

Additional content includes segments like “Passing the Dinglehopper” and “Under the Sea – Song Breakdown”, offering viewers a deeper dive into the film's making and musical composition.

The narrative of “The Little Mermaid” revolves around Ariel, the curious and adventurous mermaid princess. She's the youngest of King Triton's daughters and harbours a dream to explore the world above the waves. During one such escapade, she finds herself smitten by Prince Eric, a human. Despite the rules that prevent mermaids from mingling with humans, Ariel is compelled to follow her heart. She strikes a perilous deal with the malevolent sea witch, Ursula, for a chance at life on land. But this choice doesn't come without its risks, endangering not just her life but the fate of her father's kingdom.

Disney enthusiasts and new fans alike can look forward to enjoying this contemporary take on a timeless tale next month on Disney+.
