Disney is bringing the sea to the live-action scene as it takes The Little Mermaid to life in theaters. With movies entering the streaming world following their release in cinemas, when can we expect Ariel's movie on their platform?
When is The Little Mermaid Streaming on Disney Plus?
The Little Mermaid swims through the theaters on May 26th and it brings Ariel and her story in a live-action adaptation with some modern twists on the narrative.
Today, it has been a norm that when a movie comes out in theaters, one could expect it to arrive on streaming platforms soon after its cinematic release.
As of the time of writing, however, there is no concrete streaming release date yet for The Little Mermaid.
Looking at the current trend of the releases of Disney on Disney Plus, it usually takes three months after the theatrical release before the movie comes out on the streaming platform.
This, of course, is subject to change because there are movies that come out longer than three months or sometimes, even shorter.
This is dependent on how long the movie would be in cinemas.
As for The Little Mermaid, given its theatrical release near the end of May, it could be expected to arrive on Disney Plus by around August or September 2023.
To access the roster of Disney Plus, a subscription is needed which costs $7.99 per month for the plan with ads, or $10.99 per month for the ad-free plan.

Will The Little Mermaid Be on Other Streaming Platforms?
Unfortunately, there is no concrete answer yet as to whether The Little Mermaid would be on other streaming platforms.
Since The Little Mermaid is a Disney movie and the studio has its own streaming platform, it is usually the norm that the film would come out on Disney Plus.
That being said, there is a little to no chance to see The Little Mermaid on other streaming platforms like Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, or Max.
What is The Little Mermaid About?
From the book of Hans Christian Andersen and the 1989 animated classic movie of the same name comes the live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid.
The Little Mermaid will follow Ariel and her journey to making her dream come true but in exchange for a precious cost.
There is, however, some changes in the story of The Little Mermaid since the narrative has a modern take on Ariel's life.
The Little Mermaid arrives in theaters on May 26, 2023.
