The live-action version of The Little Mermaid has gotten the green light! It has also been confirmed that Sofia Coppola will be directing it. We can expect that this movie won’t be ANYTHING like the Disney version. Why would it? I’m excited to watch the Hans Christian Andersen version. It’s more cryptic, more realistic, more … adult lol.
Since The Little Mermaid is my favorite Disney princess movie, I wanted to discuss some of the few actresses who some believe would be great to play the role of Ariel. So here we go ….
Now, I’m always Pro Emma Stone but I just don’t see her as the role of Ariel.
Hmmmmmmm, I think it can go either way with Amy Adams BUT she wouldn’t be my first pick.
JoAnna Garcia Swisher already plays Ariel in Once Upon a Time. So, perhaps she’d make a good fit.
Lindsay Lohan? No. Just, no.
Isla Fisher might just make a pretty damned good Ariel. She is definitely one of my top picks!
I actually think Karen Gillan would make a good Ariel, too.
Sophie Turner could go either way but for some reason I think she’s a better pick than Amy Adams for the role.
I enjoy watching Anna Kendrick on-screen but not for this role. I just can’t see it.
At first, I wasn’t a fan of having Lily Collins play Ariel. Now, I’m warming up to the possibility.
What do you guys think? Do any of these actresses have what it takes to play Ariel?
