SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Actress Zendaya Reportedly Offered The Lead Role In Disney's THE LITTLE MERMAID

Coming off acclaimed performances in Spider-Man: Homecoming and The Greatest Showman, we're hearing Zendaya may be Disney's top choice to play Ariel in the upcoming live-action take on The Little Mermaid.

As Disney continues its mission to remake pretty much every one of its classic animated films, a new rumor claims that the House of Mouse wants Zendaya to star in the live-action version of The Little Mermaid.

According to That Hashtag Show, the studio is very high on the Spider-Man: Homecoming actress for the lead role of Ariel, and has actually offered her the part.

We'll have to treat this as a rumor for the time being, but a previous report did indicate that Disney was considering actors of color for some of the major roles, including Ariel, Eric, and Triton.

The Little Mermaid doesn't have an official release date yet, but we do know that it's expected to film in Puerto Rico and Cape Town, possibly before year's end. Mary Poppins Returns director Rob Marshall is set to helm the picture.
