Once upon a magical time, Disney fans anxiously awaited the slightest news about the studio’s new releases. Well, it’s a great day to be a Disney devotee because we have some enchanting updates that will make you want to grab your Mickey ears and start spinning with excitement!

Earlier this year, buzz started building around Disney’s latest project: a live-action adaptation of the beloved animated classic, “The Little Mermaid.” The live-action realm can sometimes be tricky, but Disney seems confident as ever with this one. Helmed by “Chicago” director Rob Marshall, the film stars Halle Bailey as Ariel, a choice that has already splashed waves of excitement and chatter across the seven seas of social media.

Those familiar melodies will serenade your heart all over again, as Alan Menken returns to sprinkle his musical magic, promising to bring some new tunes alongside the cherished classics we all know and love. Lin-Manuel Miranda, the lyrical genius behind “Hamilton” and co-composer of Disney’s “Moana,” is also on board, blending his iconic style to create a soundtrack destined to be on repeat.

Now, let’s not forget about the charismatic cast that will be bringing these beloved characters to life! Jonah Hauer-King takes on the role of Prince Eric, with Melissa McCarthy trading her comedy heels for tentacles as the villainous Ursula. Plus, Daveed Diggs, Awkwafina, and Jacob Tremblay voice Sebastian, Scuttle, and Flounder, respectively. We can’t wait to hear how their voices breathe new life into these iconic characters!

But the Disney magic doesn’t stop there. Another highly-anticipated release on the horizon is Pixar’s “Lightyear,” a spin-off tracing the origins of our favorite space ranger, Buzz Lightyear. Voiced by the ever-talented Chris Evans, this film promises to warp us into galaxies far, far away and uncover the story behind the toy we all grew up with.

So, dear fans, what new cinematic spell are you most excited to be under? Do the songs of “The Little Mermaid” call to you like a siren’s song, or does the universe of “Lightyear” make you want to leap to infinity and beyond?
