We’ve all longed to find out what life is like.” “I want, which is really the key story of this, I feel like it’s more modern than the original, just in terms of really forging the life that you choose to have for yourself,” McCarthy said.

She continued: “And I think that’s so relevant and necessary for today, that I think it will bring a lot of joy to people.” Like all of Disney’s live-action remakes, The Little Mermaid will follow the classic story while making some modern twists. The film will also include music from Disney’s Oscar-winning 1989 animated musical classic, as well as four new songs.
