The Original 'Little Mermaid' Story Is Different Than Disney

The Original 'Little Mermaid' Story Is Different Than Disney

It was just announced that Chloe Moretz will be starring in the new adaptation of The Little Mermaid and there have been mixed reviews about the actress joining the cast.

Earlier this year, director Sofia Coppola left the project and some speculated it was because she wanted a lesser known actress to take the leading role. But since this is not a live-action version of the Disney film, we think Chloe is the perfect fit for the role!

The story, originally penned by Hans Christian Andersen, is much darker than what the animated Disney film portrays and will really let Chloe show off her acting chops.

With intense scenes where Ariel gets her tongue cut out and a much less happy ending, we think Chloe will bring this lesser-known version of the story to life.

Check out this video showing the differences between the original story and Disney’s The Little Mermaid below…
