It really depends on who they get for Ariel and the rest of the cast because this one is one I will be very picky about.

Modern Burton movies are awful. I mean, I guess Big Eyes was alright but boring.

Alan Menken said that originally the film was supposed to happen before the live-action remake of Aladdin. However, since the producer Marc Platt and Menken's co-songwriter Lin Manuel Miranda are working on Mary Poppins Returns, he shifted focus to Aladdin.

And up next is a live-action Little Mermaid?

But first is a live-action Aladdin, most people donít know that. First there was a live-action Little Mermaid, but both the producer and my collaborator on that, Lin-Manuel Miranda, are working on Mary Poppins in London, so Aladdin has now jumped ahead of it and thatís what Iím in the thick of now.

Rob Marshall (Into the Woods & Mary Poppins Returns) is the top choice to direct the film. He'll have time over the holidays to make a decision.

I've been thinking about this live action film a lot lately. Particularly after watching Justice League, there was a female guardian under the sea who interacted with Aquaman. Can't remember who she was but her red hair was flowing so beautifully in the water, I kept thinking that could be Ariel if done right.

Why? I thoroughly enjoyed Into the Woods and his 1999 version Annie was IMHO superior to the 1982 film. I really think it would be great if Meryl Streep played Ursula. Also, Lily James, who is playing the younger version of Streep's character in the sequel to Mamma Mia!, could portray Vanessa, Ursula's alter-ego.

Most of my ire for Marshall comes from Into the Woods. I hate how he stages scenes (esp in ITW) and everything he directs just seems hollow to me. Feels like his directing style is simple and that he's just going through the motions and checking off the required boxes when framing scenes.

I think Chicago is his best work and he think he did a good job with that.
