Disney has filmed a live action remake of their 1989 hit animated movie, The Little Mermaid. The classic is to be released in 2023 on May 26.
The new movie was shot in London, United Kingdom and Sardinia, Italy. The United Kingdom was chosen for it’s historical setting and ancient castles while the beautiful island Sardinia was chosen for its natural appeal, rugged coastlines dotted with rock structures and crystal clear waters which make it the perfect location for a dreamy mermaid tale.
The Little Mermaid auditions ended in 2019 and officially began filming in London in 2020 but the Corona virus pandemic posed a challenge for the production. Some major changes had to be made and the shoots had to be moved to Italy. The filming was finally wrapped up in July last year.
The latest news about the movie is the official trailer that was released at the D23 EXPO this past September 9. The teaser has drawn many to happy tears and left the entire fandom in very tensed anticipation for its release.
