NOTE: This article is 11 months old and may not include the most recent information.

In the fiercely competitive world of streaming platforms, it seems Disney+ has landed another big catch with its latest release of “The Little Mermaid.” Just a week after its debut on September 6, the live-action adaptation, featuring Halle Bailey and Jonah Hauer-King in the leading roles, has swiftly climbed to the top, breaking previous records set by the platform.

Within the first five days of its release on Disney+, the film managed to rack up an impressive 16 million views, earning it the distinction of being one of the most viewed movie premieres on the service. This surge in viewership even surpassed that of “Hocus Pocus 2,” which was noted as the largest film premiere on Disney+ nearly a year ago.

But the success isn’t confined to the digital realm. Following its earlier release in theatres this summer, “The Little Mermaid” has garnered a significant $570 million globally, placing it among the top ten highest-grossing films of the year. It seems the refreshed take on the classic tale has managed to strike a chord with viewers worldwide, reintroducing the magic and allure of the underwater world to both new and returning fans.

As Disney+ continues to expand its library with fresh takes on timeless tales, the robust debut of “The Little Mermaid” is a promising indicator of the platform’s ability to attract viewers with a blend of nostalgia and new, captivating storytelling. It’ll be interesting to watch how Disney+ continues to navigate these waters and what other surprises it might have up its sleeve for eager audiences in the coming months.
