Disney’s new ‘Little Mermaid’ appears to include dig at Kate Middleton

Is Mickey Mouse on Workforce Meghan?

A reviewer who noticed an early screening of Disney’s new remake of “The Little Mermaid” tells Web page Six that it appears to dip a toe (or a fin?) into the Megxit debacle — and even accommodates what seems to be a dig at Kate Middleton.

The critic tells us that the movie appears to attract a lot of refined but believable comparisons between Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on the one hand and the 2 lead characters, Ariel (who’s Black within the new model) and Prince Eric (who’s white), on the opposite.

However one scene specifically appears to get fairly literal. “Ariel has sacrificed her voice so as to get to the floor and [meet] Prince Eric. She will be able to’t converse so he tries to guess her identify,” they informed us. “His first guess is Diana. His second guess is Catherine, however after [Ariel gives a disgusted] response, he [concludes] ‘OK, undoubtedly not Catherine.’”

Our cinematic spy says there’s nothing within the film’s inside logic to in any other case clarify the mermaid’s excessive response, and, they add, “Disney can be disingenuous to indicate these identify decisions had been coincidental.” (For sure, Diana is the identify of Prince Harry’s late mom and Catherine is the complete identify of his sister-in-law, the Princess of Wales, a.ok.a., Kate Middleton, who’s extensively seen as Markle’s real-life nemesis within the ongoing saga of Meghan and Harry’s exit from royal duties).

In the meantime, in her infamous 2021 interview with Oprah Winfrey, Markle herself mentioned she recognized with the mermaid.

Throughout “Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Particular” she recalled watching the traditional 1989 animation throughout her troubled time within the UK after her 2018 wedding ceremony to Harry. “I went, ‘Oh my God, she falls in love with the prince and due to that she loses her voice,’” Markle mentioned.

Within the new fishy flick, Ariel is performed by Halle Bailey and Johan Hauer-King performs Prince Eric. Melissa McCarthy performs villain Ursula this time round.

The film is out on Might 26.
