The Little Mermaid Official Trailer
Watch and you’ll see, someday I’ll be……(part of your world) as Walt Disney Studios releases the official trailer for the upcoming live-action remake of The Little Mermaid. View trailer below.
“The Little Mermaid” is the beloved story of Ariel, a beautiful and spirited young mermaid with a thirst for adventure. The youngest of King Triton’s daughters and the most defiant, Ariel longs to find out more about the world beyond the sea and, while visiting the surface, falls for the dashing Prince Eric. While mermaids are forbidden to interact with humans, Ariel must follow her heart. She makes a deal with the evil sea witch, Ursula, which gives her a chance to experience life on land but ultimately places her life – and her father’s crown – in jeopardy. The film stars singer and actress Halle Bailey (“grown-ish”) as Ariel; Jonah Hauer-King (“A Dog’s Way Home”) as Prince Eric; Tony Award® winner Daveed Diggs (“Hamilton”) as the voice of Sebastian; Awkwafina (“Raya and the Last Dragon”) as the voice of Scuttle; Jacob Tremblay (“Luca”) as the voice of Flounder; Noma Dumezweni (“Mary Poppins Returns”) as Queen Selina; Art Malik (“Homeland”) as Sir Grimsby; with Oscar® winner Javier Bardem (“No Country for Old Men”) as King Triton; and two-time Academy Award® nominee Melissa McCarthy (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?” “Bridesmaids”) as Ursula.
Very interesting and I like it. While the recent Disney live-action movies can a be a little bit “hit or miss” in their reception to moviegoers, I have feeling that this movie could work in the studio’s favor. From the trailer alone, this latest preview shows off plenty of new footage, including a lot of the various acting talent who are going to play these iconic characters. I am curious how this movie will play out. Will it be too faithful to the source material or will it branch out too far to be unrecognizable to the beloved animated tale. In the end, I’m quite interested to see how The Little Mermaid shapes up to be. Hopefully for the good….
