The live action of Disney’s Little Mermaid is scheduled to be officially released on the 26th of May, 2023. Meanwhile, the official teaser trailer that was released on 9th September is already making waves on the internet and giving everyone chills.
This remake of The Little Mermaid appears to have a very powerful cast on board. With the likes of Melissa McCarthy as Ursula, Daveed Diggs as Sebastien the crab, Javier Bardem as King Triton, Awkwafina as Scuttle the seagull, Good Boys’ Jacob Tremblay as Flounder the fish, Jonah Hauer-King as the human Prince Eric and finally, singer, songwriter and Grownish star, Halle Bailey starring as the lovely Ariel.
Auditions for the movie ended in 2019 and the shooting started shortly after. The filming was officially completed in July 2021, however, the trailer was not released until recently on September 9.
Disney seems to be taking their sweet time with the release of the 1989 classic remake but we are hopeful that definitely on May 26 next year, the long awaited live action will be out for the world to enjoy.
