The film, which now holds no pinpointed release date, will include original songs from the 1989 animated version of the story, along with original new music from original composer Alan Menken and Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Disney's live-action remake of The Little Mermaid has officially found its star in Halle Bailey. No stranger to musicals, or working for Disney, Marshall was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Director for his feature film debut, Chicago.
