Is The Little Mermaid streaming? Five years after development officially began, The Little Mermaid live-action movie finally arrived this year. Like Ariel, it feels like we’ve been waiting a lifetime to be “part of their world,” so a return under the sea feels well overdue.

The Little Mermaid is already considered one of the best live-action Disney remakes and is based on the 1989 film (AKA: one of the best animated movies of all time). But if you are still uneasy, rest assured that with Alan Menken returning as a composer and Chicago’s Rob Marshall directing, this jaunt into the deep blue sea is as whimsical as ever. And if that still isn’t enough, check out our five-star Little Mermaid review for more info!

Needless to say, The Little Mermaid was one of the most exciting new movies of 2023, and one you shouldn’t have missed. But if you did, here’s how to watch The Little Mermaid on streaming.

Disney‘s new release pattern is to wait for a theatrical run to finish and to release digital media before allowing its films to go streaming. The Little Mermaid took longer than some recent films, but September 6, 2023, was eventually announced for streaming.

Is The Little Mermaid on Netflix?

Sorry folks, but The Little Mermaid isn’t on Netflix, and probably never will be.

Because why would Disney not put the movie on its own streamer? Remember that we are living in a time of streaming wars, and distribution for films is like gold. So we doubt that a Netflix release date will ever be announced.
