The trailer and poster for Disney’s The Little Mermaid, the live-action reimagining of the studio’s animated musical classic, are here! Earlier today, the trailer of the film was broadcasted live during the 95th Annual Academy Awards. The film is helmed by filmmaker Rob Marshall.
The trailer starts with the iconic scene of Prince Eric’s ship getting burned and broken due to the storm. It then showcases Ariel as she saves him from drowning.
Check out the trailer here:
The trailer has amazing VFX as it shows the sea world that also features her father King Triton, Ariel’s desire to know about the human world and the dreamy romance between her and Prince Eric which all builds up to her encounter with the sinister sea witch Ursula.
The Oscar-winning Alan Menken and Howard Ashman return to compose ‘Part of Your World’ which is reprised by Halle Bailey. The song covers the second half of the trailer and gives us a glimpse into Ariel’s world. We also get to look at the film’s other iconic musical ‘Under the Sea,’ which won Oscars for Best Original Song in 1989.
The Little Mermaid is the beloved story of Ariel, a beautiful and spirited young mermaid with a thirst for adventure. The youngest of King Triton’s daughters and the most defiant, Ariel longs to find out more about the world beyond the sea and, while visiting the surface, falls for the dashing Prince Eric. While mermaids are forbidden to interact with humans, Ariel must follow her heart. She makes a deal with the evil sea witch, Ursula, which gives her a chance to experience life on land but ultimately places her life – and her father’s crown – in jeopardy.
