How to Watch The Little Mermaid: Showtimes and Streaming Status

Must read

Disney's latest live-action reimagining takes moviegoers back under the sea to relive the musical adventures of Ariel and her subaquatic supporting cast. As mentioned in our The Little Mermaid review, Halle Bailey gives a "brilliantly vulnerable," "star-making" performance as Ariel in this new iteration of the 19th-century love story.

The Little Mermaid is now in theaters everywhere. If you're wondering how and where you can watch it yourself, take a look at the information below.

The Little Mermaid Streaming Release Status

There's been no official announcement regarding The Little Mermaid's streaming release date, though we know it will eventually be released on Disney+, rather than Netflix or HBO Max.

It's difficult to guess when to expect The Little Mermaid on Disney+, as the company hasn't been consistent with its streaming-release cadence; its past five live-action reimaginings were released directly onto Disney+. The company has brought the last few Marvel movies to streaming within two-three months, however, which potentially puts The Little Mermaid on Disney+ between July 26 and August 26.

What Is The Little Mermaid About?

The Little Mermaid (2023) is a live-action reimagining of Disney's 1989 animated classic. Here's the official synopsis:

The Little Mermaid is the beloved story of Ariel, a beautiful and spirited young mermaid with a thirst for adventure. The youngest of King Triton’s daughters and the most defiant, Ariel longs to find out more about the world beyond the sea and, while visiting the surface, falls for the dashing Prince Eric. While mermaids are forbidden to interact with humans, Ariel must follow her heart. She makes a deal with the evil sea witch, Ursula, which gives her a chance to experience life on land but ultimately places her life – and her father’s crown – in jeopardy.

How to Watch The Original Little Mermaid Movies

The original animated Little Mermaid movie and its two lesser-known follow-ups are all available to stream on Disney+. The animated Little Mermaid TV show, which ran for three seasons from 1992–1994, is also available on Disney+. If you don't have that streaming service, all three films and the series can be rented or purchased on Prime Video.
