Our Disney dreams are coming true! The new Ariel has just been announced and it’s none other than Chloe Moretz! We can’t think of a better fit for the live-action ‘Little Mermaid’ movie than the sweet, spunky star. We’ve got all the details here!
Oh my gosh, our prayers have been answered — no evil contract with Ursula necessary! There’s a new Little Mermaid on the block, and we couldn’t be more excited about the gal chosen to play the new Ariel — 18-year-old Chloe Moretz! We think the adorable starlet will be perfect for the live-action role. Here’s everything we know thus far.
Chloe is about to blow up! She’s got three movies coming out next year: Neighbors 2, Brain on Fire and The 5th Wave, and now she can add another HUGE project to the list: The Little Mermaid, according to HollywoodLife.com‘s sister site Variety! There has been word about a live-action retelling of Ariel’s classic story for a while, but we’re so happy to see someone so sweet chosen for the role.
We think Chloe will make a perfect Ariel. She has an innocent kind of beauty, a kind demeanor, and some serious acting chops that will help her to channel the underwater princess flawlessly. We don’t know much about the remake yet, as the film has no release date and is still in the final writing stages, but we’re sure it’s going to be amazing if Chloe is on board!
The actress is killing it lately. Just in 2015, she’s starred in a campaign for Coach, started filming Neighbors 2, and looked super-hot in a bikini on set! Now she can check off “be a princess” too! You’re crushing it girl, and we can’t wait to see you bring our fave Disney movie to life in a whole new way!
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Will Chloe make an amazing Ariel? Sound off below!
