“I will sing again, as #ariel #thelittlemermaid,” Lohan wrote on Instagram Saturday, alongside a side-by-side pic of her and the animated mermaid princess. “@disney approve that “#billcondon directs it along with my sister @alianamusic singing the theme song for the soundtrack.”
“Also @kgrahamsfb plays Ursula,” the actress continued. “Simply because, she is the best. Take one. @disneystudios.”
Disney has not commented on the film and has not responded to Lohan’s post.
In summer 2016, it was reported Disney execs were in talks about a possible live-action Little Mermaid movie. That November, Broadway’s Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda told Vulture that he was in “super-early talks” to take part in the film, following reports he had teamed up with the 1989 animated movie’s composer Alan Menken to pen its songs. Miranda had recently starred and written music for Disney’s Moana.
“I literally don’t have a title for what my job on The Little Mermaid is yet,” Lin-Manuel said. “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.”
