It looks like another one of the main characters has been cast for The Little Mermaid, Disney’s live-action remake of their 1989 animated classic of the same name.
It’s being reported that Daveed Diggs is in talks to join the cast. If ink meets paper he’ll voice the role of Sebastian the crab, who sang the Academy Award-winning song “Under the Sea” in the animated original.
During San Diego Comic-Con 2019 this past summer an official trailer was released for His Dark Materials, a TV series adaptation of author Philip Pullman‘s fantasy book trilogy of the same name being co-produced by HBO and the BBC.
Now HBO has released a second official trailer for the series, which already has a two-season commitment. You can find much more info and give the new trailer a watch below.
It would be hard for any television series to follow up something as grand and epic as Game Of Thrones. Near impossible. But HBO is going to try hard to make that happen with theirs and BBC’s adaptation of His Dark Materials. It won’t be easy, but it will at least fill that void left behind by Game of Thrones until its prequel arrives.
And now we are getting an extended look from the upcoming show that will hit TV screens later this Fall, courtesy of a brand new trailer that debuted today at the San Diego Comic-Con. Check out the latest trailer for the show here below.
Casting for The Little Mermaid is already in full swing. Hailey Bailey will play the titular role, while others like Melissa McCarthy, Awkwafina, and Jacob Tremblay will play supporting roles.
But this really wouldn’t be a Little Mermaid reimagining without its Prince Eric. According to a new report, Dunkirk star and One Direction bandmate Harry Styles is in talks to play the role of the young prince who Ariel dreams of being with. More on the report below.
Things have been moving along swimmingly for the casting of director Rob Marshall‘s The Little Mermaid. The new telling is the latest Disney film to get a live-action treatment.
Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids, Can You Ever Forgive Me), Jacob Tremblay (Room, The Predator), and Awkwafina (Crazy Rich Asians, The Farewell) are in talks to play Ursula, Flounder, and Scuttle, respectively. And now the most important character of all has been cast.
Disney has confirmed that Halle Bailey will play Ariel in the new live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid. More on this below.
