Lindsay Lohan Was Passed On Again For Playing ‘The Little Mermaid’

Some actresses often just stay quiet, and wishing only in their thoughts that they get roles they dream of getting…but not Lindsay Lohan.  The former child star has voiced out her dream of playing the role of the Ariel, in case Disney decides to turn the animated classic film The Little Mermaid into a live-action film, just like they did to Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and The Lion King.

Lohan made it clear for a long time now about how she’s longing to play the role.  She even posted on Instagram a photo of Ariel and Ursula, with the caption that she wants to play the Disney princess, opposite actress Meryl Streep, who she believes would be the perfect Ursula.  She even jokingly said she would be harassing her agent to get her this dream role.  According to the actress, The Little Mermaid is her favorite movie of all time, ever since she was a kid.  And that watching the film brought happiness.

There is no official word yet that Disney will be making a live-action version of the film, but an opportunity opened up for Lohan, because the film was to be given a new lease of life through back-to-back live shows at the Hollywood Bowl.  The special event coincides with the 30-year anniversary of the movie.  The musical has an all-star cast, but sadly, no Lohan on the list.

Yet again, Lohan lost an opportunity to play the lead character from her favorite Disney movie.  She was passed on actress for Lea Michele, who would play Ariel.  Michele is famous for being the lead star of the hit TV musical show Glee, and she has years of experience in musical theater.  This is not the first time that The Little Mermaid has been adapted for a musical play, as it has been done before in 2016, with singer Sara Bareilles playing Ariel.  Truly sad news for Lohan, but you never know, if Disney actually decides to make the film, they might give the actress a call.
