Walt Disney Studios has established a remarkable trend of making live-action remakes of its classic stories. With the live-action Peter Pan & Wendy due out in April, Disney will continue their string of live-action remakes a month later with The Little Mermaid.

Hans Christian Andersen’s 1837 fairy tale of Ariel, titled The Little Mermaid, inspired Disney’s 1989 animated film of the same name. The film was widely successful and Ariel the mermaid became a household name.

After the announcement of a live-action remake back in 2016, the wait will soon be over. The Little Mermaid is filmmaker Rob Marshall’s live-action re-imagining of the studio’s Oscar-winning animated musical classic of 1989. The story will likely follow the original events, but it’s only a little more wait till we find out. Here is everything we know so far about The Little Mermaid.

Walt Disney Studios dropped the official teaser trailer for The Little Mermaid on September 10th, 2022 during a presentation at Disney’s D23 Expo. The teaser took the audience by waves, and quite literally so since the scene opens showing colossal ocean waves.

The following scene takes the viewers underwater and offers stunning glimpses of the fantastic environment beneath the vast ocean. In a wonderful spellbinding moment, the young mermaid Ariel is shown singing “Out of the sea, wish I could be… part of that world.” Halle Bailey’s first appearance as Ariel garnered great attention from fans.

A thirty-second spot for the film was released by Disney on February 15, 2023. While the first half of the spot has pretty much the same amount of footage as the initial teaser trailer, the last 15 seconds give us a better look at Ariel, and our first glimpses at her mermaid sisters, Jonah Hauer-King as Prince Eric (in what seems to be the live-action rendition of “Kiss the Girl”), and Melissa McCarthy as Ursala.
