Recently, it seems like every Disney princess movie is being remade into a live-action film. With real people playing characters each of us has dreamed of being since we were five, it seems like a dream come true right? Well, for most of us it really depends on who’s playing the role of our idols. So far, Disney has done an excellent job of casting princess roles.
The popular Disney film, Beauty And The Beast, is coming out in theaters on March 17 with leading character, Belle, played by the incredibly talented Emma Watson. I think we can all agree that Watson is literally a living, breathing Belle. But recently, Lindsay Lohan has voiced her interest in becoming the leading role in Disney’s remake of The Little Mermaid as Ariel. What?! Is anyone else extremely confused by this? I get why Lohan would think that she would be the perfect actress to play the role of Ariel, but sorry to break it to you, just because you have red hair doesn’t automatically make you the appropriate fit for a character like Ariel. Clearly, Lohan thinks otherwise.

On Sunday, the 30-year-old actress posted a picture on her Instagram with a caption saying, “#thelittlemermaid”. Lohan originally posted the same picture on Saturday with an old caption, “I will sing again, as #ariel #thelittlemermaid.” It is unknown as to why she edited the captions, but it’s Lindsay Lohan, no one knows why she does what she does half the time. The actress also tagged Disney to her post, “@disneystudios,” but thankfully the Disney company hasn’t acknowledged her casting interest.
The Mean Girls icon has voiced her curiosity for the role of Ariel since November 2016 in interviews and on talk shows. It was only until recently that Lohan actually pitched her idea to the Disney company on social media which clearly didn’t get her very far.
The idea to remake Disney’s The Little Mermaid has been an accumulating idea within the Disney company since last summer. The successful Broadway actor best known for his starring role in Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda, revealed to Vulture that if this film goes into effect he will assist top composer Alan Menken in creating the motion picture soundtrack. Miranda has previous experience with creating animated film soundtracks since he composed the music scores for Disney’s Moana, which was released back in November.
Coincidently, Lohan’s exclamation was posted on Instagram only a few moments after Disney officially released the big news that the hit Disney animation film, The Lion King, will be rebooted into a live-action film. The project will start sometime this year with Simba played by Donald Glover and Mufasa played by James Earl Jones who has previously played this role.
With all the Disney live-action remakes, theaters everywhere are going to be swarmed with Disney reboots that audiences are going to love. I’m just hoping that if The Little Mermaid live-action reboot goes into effect, that Lindsay Lohan isn’t cast as Ariel. The world doesn’t need to see Hollywood’s most messed-up actress taking up the role of the innocent little mermaid, Ariel, on the big screen. Lohan just needs to understand that just because she’s a red-head, doesn’t permit her to become America’s most loved mermaid. No child needs to see that.
