The Little Mermaid Reboot To Cast Lindsay Lohan?
After Beauty and the Beast, Lindsay Lohan teased that she will play Ariel in Disney’s The Little Mermaid live-action film soon. E! News reports that the Mean Girls actress shared a side-by-side photo of her and Ariel on her Instagram account on Feb. 18.
Furthermore, the outlet notes that Lohan initially captioned her photo with “I will sing again, as #ariel #thelittlemermaid.” The actress continued and wrote, “@disney approve that #billcondon directs it along with my sister @alianamusic singing the theme song for the soundtrack.”
The publication reports that the Parent Trap star has also said in previous interviews that she dreamed of taking on the role of The Little Mermaid’s Ariel. Furthermore, the actress even “unofficially pitched” the idea to Disney through social media last November.
Meanwhile, Entertainment Weekly reports that Lohan has edited her detailed caption with a simplified one: #thelittlemermaid. On the other hand, the publication reports that an insider close to Lohan said that the Freaky Friday star is really interested to do a new version of the animated series.

While there is no actual confirmation about the film’s casting, the initial report notes that negotiations are happening. Lin-Manuel Miranda, Hamilton’s creator, did tell Vulture that he was in “super-early talks” to take part in the film. Moreover, Miranda had reportedly teamed up with The Little Mermaid’s Alan Menken to pen the songs for the upcoming movie.
Miranda revealed that he still does not have a clear idea on what will his job be. “Right now, it’s the guy who wears the ‘don’t mess it up’ hat. If I could sign a contract with that job title on it, that would be great! But that’s sort of where we are,” said Miranda.

The outlet notes that though Lohan’s post created a lot of buzz online, Disney has yet to respond. Lohan’s career in Hollywood started out with Disney in 1998 when the actress starred in the movie, Parent Trap. Her career went rock bottom because of her “personal and legal turmoil almost a decade ago.” Do you think Lohan will be a perfect Ariel in The Little Mermaid Reboot?
