Here's what the critics had to say about The Little Mermaid
Raise your fin if you are seeing Disney’s Little Mermaid on the Showcase Cinemas big screen this coming Bank holiday weekend?
We are sure that our audiences will be wowed by Rob Marshall’s live action remake of Disney beloved animated film.
Here is what some of the critics have had to say:
It remains what it always was: a charming, escapist fairy tale.
[Halle Bailey] is the star attraction and she brings all the right amounts of courage and playfulness to the open-hearted mermaid.
ABC News Australia
If you're a fan of the animated Little Mermaid, this remake isn't about to replace the original in your affection. But... For some kids, it may just be their new favourite thing, and a film that opens them up to a world of cinema, music, and fantasy.
Chicago Sun Times
Bailey’s Ariel is just so lovely and likable, we can’t help but root for her to win true love and prove that humankind and merpeople really aren’t so different after all.
The Little Mermaid is at its simplest the quintessential story of an outsider that everyone can connect with. In this modern retelling, many will walk away having fallen in love with Bailey’s Ariel, and feeling not only seen but also moved by her story.

We get to witness the rise of a star
Halle Bailey makes this live-action version of the Disney classic her own, with confidence, charisma and oceans of charm
Thanks largely to star Halle Bailey, the lavish musical holds up nicely under the weight of those expectations, preserving the original’s essence while updating undernourished aspects of it and riding a warm, hard-to-resist wave of nostalgia.
Bailey is fantastic casting. She has ample pipes for the songs.
Halle Bailey retains everything that was originally captivating about Ariel, and this new, more diverse Little Mermaid offers much to fans old and young.
Halle Bailey gives a full-throttle performance
Halle Bailey is all the reason that any audience should need to justify Disney revisiting this classic.
