The First Trailer For Disney’s ‘THE LITTLE MERMAID’ Live Action
Check out the very first trailer that has been released for the upcoming live-action of THE LITTLE MERMAID! Check it down below!
This version stars Shirley MacLaine, Poppy Drayton, William Moseley, Loreto Peralta and Gina Gershon. It takes on the 1837 fairy tale that we’re all familiar with. A mermaid is being controlled by someone who has a part of her. In this film, it’s her soul, and in the animated film, it’s her voice. In this story, a younger reporter (Moseley) is sent to a small town in Mississippi to investigate a story about a woman who is really a mermaid. His younger sister (Peralta) meets the mermaid (Drayton), who tells her there is a legend among her people about a little girl who is blessed with the soul of a mermaid.
Directed by Blake Harris and Chris Bouchard from a script by Harris.
In case you didn’t know, there’s another film version of the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale based on the 1989 Disney animated film in development with Hamilton and Moana‘s Lin-Manuel Miranda too.
The Little Mermaid is set to be released sometime this summer.
