According to several rumors, Disneyland Paris is still deciding on what exactly Ariel will be doing in the parks. Across the pond, Walt Disney World and Disneyland (California), will feature limited time Ariel meet and greets. It’s possible that Disneyland Paris will also follow this strategy. 

What has been confirmed is that Ariel’s limited time appearance will take place in Walt Disney Studios Park. According to the official press release, iconic songs like “Under the Sea” and “Kiss the Girl” will also be integrated into the experience.

Disneyland Paris is currently casting Halle Baily lookalikes to portray the live-action Ariel in Walt Disney Studios Park. 

Exact dates have not been confirmed for the Ariel appearance. Be sure to follow AirMagique as this article will be updated as soon as they are announced. 

Rob Marshall, an Oscar-nominated director famous for his work on “Chicago” and Disney’s “Mary Poppins Returns,” helms the upcoming remake of “The Little Mermaid.” The film stars Halle Bailey as the mermaid princess Ariel, Jonah Hauer-King as Prince Eric, Daveed Diggs as the crab Sebastian, Awkwafina as the bird Scuttle, Jacob Tremblay as Flounder, Javier Bardem as King Triton, and Melissa McCarthy as Ursula. Additionally, Noma Dumezweni will portray Queen Selina, a new character who is Eric’s mother. 

Alan Menken, the composer of the original 1989 film, updated some of the lyrics for the live-action remake in collaboration with Lin-Manuel Miranda. “The Little Mermaid” (2023) is set to premiere on May 24/25 in most European countries.
