Disney has been having a pretty good run of turning their animated classics into live-action hits. Cinderella in 2015 was great and The Jungle Book in 2016 was visually just next level. This year they’re giving us Beauty and the Beast, which is sure to be a hit, but what’re their plan for 2018?
Some have said a live-action The Lion King, but let’s just scrap that, because Lindsay Lohan has proposed a far more sure fire hit! Disney presents a live-action The Little Mermaid starring LINDSAY LOHAN! My prayers have been answered!
Though this film might seem like a no-brainer to me, Disney obviously hasn’t confirmed or announced it yet, instead Lindsay just took to Instagram to propose it. You know, the regular way big time celebrities get movies made nowadays.

With the original caption:
I will sing again, as #ariel #thelittlemermaid. @Disney approve that #billcondon directs it along with my sister @alianamusic singing the theme song for the soundtrack. also @kgrahamsfb plays Ursula. Simply because she is the best. ake one. @disneystudios.
Like I said, this is clearly a no brainer. Disney should 100% put hundreds of millions of dollars into a live-action The Little Mermaid directed by Bill Condon (director of Chicago, Dream Girls, and the new Beauty and the Beast), starring major superstar and 31 going on 55 Lindsay Lohan as the teenage mermaid, with world famous singer Aliana Lohan singing the theme song.
Everything about this screams sure fire mega hit. I mean, who wouldn’t want to see this radiant beauty and eternal superstar as Ariel:
Listen, if this was like 2003/4, Lindsay Lohan would be perfect casting for Ariel in a live-action The Little Mermaid, but casting her now is like Disney casting me as Rapunzel in a live-action Tangled. I was born in 1986, like Lohan, and would therefore look like an asshole playing a teenager, and, like Lohan, no one gives a shit about seeing me in a movie other than me. It’s just not going to work!
That being said, if Disney execs have decided to get really into meth this week and decide to green light this project, I will 100% be the first person (and only person) in the theatres to see it.
