It looks like the upcoming live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid will include four brand new songs that still have the same feeling as the original, as revealed by director Rob Marshall during the D23 panel for Disney’s future slate. Here’s a statement by director Marshall as shared by THR’s Borys Kit from the panel on how fond he is of the original film and why he wants to stay true to it:

When it opened in 1989…musicals were gone. Even though it was animated, we could hear people singing at movies again.
