Rumor: Disney Might Be Looking at Zendaya for Role of Ariel in Live-Action ‘Little Mermaid’


The current buzz around the internet today is the rumor that Disney may have offered the lead role of Ariel, in their upcoming live-action Little Mermaid film, to actress Zendaya.

This is coming from That Hashtag Show. On the show it was indicated that sources close to Disney have offered the role of Ariel to Zendaya. Of course nothing has been confirmed by either Disney or Zendaya herself.

She does have a strong history with the Disney company and is currently set to reprise her character from Spider-man: Homecoming in the upcoming sequel Spider-Man: Far From Home. She was in some Disney Channel movies and starred in the Disney K.C. Undercover show.

Plus, we know she can sing!

The new live-action Little Mermaid is going to be a musical like the original animated feature. Alan Menken and Lin-Manuel Miranda will be composing new music for it.  These new songs will be performed along with classic music from the 1989 Disney film.

Again, this is just a rumor and nothing has actually been confirmed.
