‘The Little Mermaid’ Remake Fans ACTUALLY Asked For

If you’re sick of the non-stop The Little Mermaid news, then this is the place to refresh your love for the story. All anyone wants to talk about this Memorial Day weekend is Rob Marshall and Halle Bailey’s live action remake and its smashing box office success.

While the 2023 remake is beautiful and successful, Instagram User Mr. FRANK aka @mr_frankthegolden showed the world what the live action version could have been.

With beautiful flowing red locks, Mr. FRANK the golden retriever BECOMES the Little Mermaid in a truly transformative way that no one else can compete with. At sunset, this absolutely precious good boy prances from the shore into the waves. Flipping your fins you don’t get too far, so it’s a good thing Mr. FRANK has four legs at his disposal. Watch out Ursula, this pup has no need for you!

Totally comfortable (perhaps even happier?) in the red wig, Mr. FRANK poses and waves on a sea rock, basks in the sun, and runs along the shore – and I’ve never seen anything more majestic. Expect for the shot where he looks down the barrel of the camera with a mouth full of seaweed. The text over the images reads, “My dog wanted to be Ariel, so he became her.”

You NEED to see this video Mr. FRANK posted to Instagram on May 16, and @the_little_mermaid_world shared on TikTok:

Mr. FRANK (or Mr. FRANK’s human) captioned the Instagram video with:

The little Fur-maid, Ariel wished for 2 legs but she accidentally got 4 ?
the remake you’ve all been waiting for ???
This was the most fun ever to make- it was like he genuinely identified with Ariel?, and the fact that he enjoyed wearing the wig so much ???
(btw we fully support & love Halle Bailey as Ariel- and anyone who doesn’t, need not leave any nasty comments ??‍♀️. ❤️)

No one can argue that Halle Bailey is an absolute star, but when it comes to The Little “Fur-maid,” she has some serious competition. Thanks Mr. FRANK for staying all day in the sun for us to see!

About Lana Porter

Lana has never lost a Disney Trivia night. Maybe it’s the hundreds of times she’s been to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, her love for Disney’s ’90’s era hand-animated musicals, or the fact that she’s often likened to cartoon characters, but Disney and its magic have a special place in her heart. Her favorite Disney experiences include the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival, eating Mickey Bars on the PeopleMover, and crying during the Magic Kingdom fireworks show. One day she hopes to be chosen as the rebel spy on Star Tours. When Lana isn’t Park Hopping, she’s at home reading books of all topics, watching her favs on Disney+, or snuggling her two cats, which she swears are not named after Disney characters. She loves surprising people with her knowledge of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but admits she is still catching up with Star Wars. She is happy to combine her excitement for writing with her love for Disney-style storytelling and share what she can with the world!
