Disney’s Little Mermaid Live-Action: Daveed Diggs as Sebastian’s VA

The upcoming Little Mermaid live-action adaptation is one of the most anticipated remakes by Disney, and now Daveed Diggs is told to be cast as the voice of Sebastian. Rob Marshall is going to direct the forthcoming live-action adaptation, which will be the next Disney reimagining. The adaptation is no surprise as the previous two releases have proved fruitful for Disney. Aladdin and The Lion King both engrossed over $1 billion globally this year. There has been no official date set for the movie; however, the studio is in the process of finishing up the film.

The casting process started by Disney casting Melissa McCarthy for the role of Ursula. After finding out a well-recognized name for the villain, Disney took a full 180-degree turn to cast the lead role. Halle Bailey was cast for the role of Ariel. Bailey is a singer and comparatively a newcomer in the industry, having worked in Grown-ish. The process continues, and now Sebastian’s voice actor has been found as well.

Daveed Diggs, best known for acting in Hamilton by Lin-Manuel Miranda, is now being talked about as the voice of Sebastian. Diggs’ fast rapping prowess was optimally utilized in the movie, and he went on to be featured in another hit named Blindspotting. He got recurring roles in films such as The Get Down, Black-ish, and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Diggs is also set to act as one of the leads in TV series, Snowpiercer.

Seeing the nature of Sebastian’s role, Diggs is expected to only act as the voice part. He is not likely to perform any performance or motion captures, unlike previous live-action Disney movies. Diggs’ voice acting prowess makes him an ideal choice for Sebastian as the crab is a critical aspect of some of the most iconic Little Mermaid songs. Songs such as Kiss The Girl and Under The Sea are going to be interesting to hear as Miranda is going to work on film’s music. So you can expect the tunes to be in accordance with Digg’s talents.

Diggs is the second singer addition in the cast as Halle is also one. The casting of Halle as Ariel went on to stir some online backlash. The backlash was utterly stupid and pointless, and Disney did not pay it any heed as well. Little Mermaid is the company’s one of the most profitable franchises, and its live adaptation seems promising as well. Disney is precautious in selecting the actors for the film, which goes on to show how much its success means to them.

How to Recover a Disabled or Locked Apple ID

An Apple ID is essential to access Apple services on your iPhone or any other Apple device. All of you have created it on your device while entering into the world of Apple services. Your Apple ID is used for purchasing apps or other things from the App Store or iTunes. Almost everywhere you’ll need a working Apple ID. Therefore, having your Apple ID disabled is the real problem. But because of some unknown reason, a message “Your Apple ID has been disabled” appears on the screen. Or sometimes without this message, a user fails to login. Once an Apple ID has been blocked, you can’t purchase or download the games or apps from the App Store, edit your Apple ID and so on. This happens with many users. However, seeing your Apple ID disabled seems big trouble, but recovering it actually pretty easy.

You may see a message saying ‘Apple ID has been locked/blocked or disabled’ for security reasons. These messages indicate that the Apple ID is disabled. There could be different reasons for disabling an Apple account, but most of them would be related to wrong entries of sensitive information. Apple disables an Apple ID when it has been tried to login too many times with incorrect password or security questions. This has been done to keep your account and info secure from misuse.

How to recover a disabled or locked Apple ID

Since, the problem occurs due to incorrectly entered password, or other related details. First, you should try logging in to Apple ID using a perfectly working keyboard. Many times a user makes the mistakes while entering the details, even multiple times. Maybe the touch of the device or a button of the keyboard is not working or working but not correctly, and hence the wrong details would enter. You can use a computer to log in to your Apple ID. If this re-enables your account, that’s good. But if not, then you’ll have to reset your password from Apple website. Here is how.

1. Go to “” to open the Apple ID password reset page.

2. Try accessing your Apple ID by using your account username.

3. On the next screen, you’ll be asked for the phone number, insert your phone number in the given field and click ‘Continue.’ Now, a notification will be sent by Apple to the devices your Apple ID is linked so that you can use any of them to reset your password.

4. Select ‘Don’t have access to any of devices?’ option if you don’t have any devices linked to that Apple ID.

5. Now, you should follow the instructions screen prompts depending on the option you’ve chosen.

Once your Apple ID password has been reset, it will re-enable, and you’ll regain access to all of the Apple services which are blocked due to disabled Apple ID.

However, turning off data is not a wise decision when the app or game uses the internet to run.

Netflix Will Release 10 Movies In Theaters Before Their Streaming Premiere

The streaming giant is trying to expand its stems in the movie industry as well. Netflix recently announced that the extremely lengthy negotiations with chief theater chains have come to fruition. Netflix will be releasing The Irishman in the theaters on November 1st; however, the movie will only be available to stream from November 27th. Martin Scorsese created the film, and it features Al Pacino along with Robert De Niro.

This is, however, the first step for Netflix because major theatres like regal and AMC stay put on a 90-day exclusive period for the movies. Netflix has been trying to stem its root in the customary film industry, but with significant theatres wanting to keep the film exclusive for some time, Netflix’s struggle does not seem to end. Netflix tends to attract new users with the exclusive movie and TV series releases, so this step appears to be a new strategy from them. Theaters that want to keep the audience attracted as long as possible before they are able to stream the film from home are not in sync with Netflix.

Source: Netflix Will Release 10 Movies In Theaters

Netflix has been trying to gain awards and prestige recognition along with free public fame that comes with the awards. Director Steven Spielberg, who is a traditionalist, is concerned with the move, as he states that Netflix movies are” television movies” and should not be eligible for the awards. The step to release the films in theatres is just a part of awards bids because it is a criterion that the movies must run in theaters to be eligible for the awards. The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences suggested earlier this year that Academy Award eligibility criteria should be adjusted, to make it harder for streaming films to win.

Amidst all this, Netflix is set to release ten movies in the theatres before their exclusivity on the streaming service. The list contains films like The Laundromat by Steven Soderbergh which will be released on September 7th in the theatres while being available to stream from October 18th. Marriage Story by Noah Baumbach will also hit the theatres on November 6th before its streaming availability from December 6th.

In comparison, Netflix only released four films in the theatres in 2018. The movies were Mowgli, Bird Box, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, and Oscar-winning Roma. The movie should have at least a week-long theatrical run for being eligible for an Oscar. With The Irishman being a strong contender from Netflix, it is understandable why they are attempting to run it for several weeks in the theatres. This may mark Netflix’s name in the movie industry, as well.
The movies Netflix is set to release are:
– The Irishman​
November. 1st (in theatres); November. 27th (on Netflix)
– Dolemite Is My Name
October 4th (in theatres); October. 25th (on Netflix)
– I Lost My Body
November. 15th (in theatres); November. 29th (on Netflix)
– The King
