The director of The Little Mermaid live-action surprised Disney fans with his optimism by revealing his plans for a sequel movie.
For meFans who are a ‘hard’ Disney fan, everyone must have known about the movie The Little Mermaid live-action has been released in theaters recently. This film received a lot of criticism after changes that should not have been in the film. However, not so that the director of this live-action was discouraged. He even shared that he had plans for a sequel. Let’s take a look at these sharings with Game8Z.
According to what was shared in an interview with Total Film, the director of The Little Mermaid 2023– Rob Marshall- said that in the future, a movie about Ariel’s story might appear. Not only that, the director also believes in the film and believes it will become the new blockbuster of the Disney family. Marshall also shared that if indeed the sequel is released, it will explore more about the surrounding characters and new stories about Ariel’s life with the prince.
Returning to reality, the post-story ability of The Little Mermaid live-action appearance is still not impossible. To date, the mermaid tale’s box office has surpassed $300 million worldwide. The film was a huge hit in its opening weekend (grossing an estimated $163.5 million, including a $95.5 million domestic first three-day cume).
However, despite being well received in the country, The Little Mermaid estranged quite a lot in other countries. Specifically, in the international market, The Little Mermaid 2023 has a revenue of only $ 68.3 million after the first week of release.
If we look back at what has been shared before, the production cost to make the film is up to 250 million USD. In addition, the money to promote the film title as well as the additional fee is reported to be up to 80 million. Not to mention that Disney also has to share with different cinemas. Therefore, it is very difficult to reach the breakeven figure as well as make a profit. So producing a sequel would be a 50/50 gamble for the Disney family.
