Zendaya Offered Disneys Little Mermaid

Zendaya (“Spider-Man: Homecoming,” “The Greatest Showman”) has reportedly been offered the lead role of Ariel in “The Little Mermaid,” the upcoming live-action remake of the animated Disney Pictures feature.

That Hashtag Show broke the news about the film which will boast songs from Alan Menken and Lin-Manuel Miranda, along with Rob Marshall slated to be director from a script by Jane Goldman.

The project will serve as both an adaptation of the Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale and the 1989 Disney animated classic based on it. Miranda will also produce with Marc Platt, the pair involved in Disney’s upcoming “Mary Poppins Returns” film.
