The Little Mermaid, one of Disney’s most beloved fairy tales, is set to make a splash on the big screen once again. This time, however, it’s with a twist – a live-action remake starring Halle Bailey as the titular character. As excitement builds for the movie’s release, fans got a taste of what’s to come.
As the Little Mermaid gets ready to take the world by storm, a live-action remake of the same film debuted at the Oscars that showed Halle Bailey shining as the beloved Ariel.
The trailer starts off by showing Ariel saving Prince Eric after his ship crashes. However, she’s chastised by her father for interacting with the humans. “I just want to know more about them,” she says.
The trailer then shows Ariel meeting Ursula and agreeing to a spell that will make her human. The trailer also showcased Halle’s amazing rendition of “Part of Your World.”
Halle Bailey presented the trailer on stage along with Melissa McCarthy. Halle looked stunning in her teal tulle dress while Melissa wore a bright red gown. Before the Academy Awards, Halle revealed how thrilled she was to portray The Little Mermaid in the film.
“I was just really excited to sing the original songs that I loved so much,” she said on E!’s Live from the Red Carpet show. “The new ones I think people will just embrace and really love and I hope they do.”
The Little Mermaid is set to hit theatres on May 26 and expectations for the film are high given that this is one of Disney’s most iconic fairy tales.
As we eagerly anticipate the release of The Little Mermaid, it’s clear that the film will be a must-see for fans of the original and newcomers alike. Stay tuned to Thirsty For News as we bring you similar stories.
