Live-Action 'Little Mermaid' Gets First Trailer - Watch Now! (Video)

The first trailer for the upcoming live-action remake of the classic Little Mermaid story has been released!

The film is not, however, based on Disney’s animated feature, but rather puts a twist on Hans Christian Andersen’s famous 1837 tale.

This Little Mermaid movie will take place in the Deep South, following two siblings (William Moseley and Loreto Peralta) who visit a circus in Mississippi with the hopes of finding the real-life Little Mermaid (Poppy Drayton)

The film also stars Oscar-winning actress Shirley MacLaine and is directed by Blake Harris and Chris Bouchard.

Meanwhile, Disney’s live-action remake of The Little Mermaid – which Lin-Manuel Miranda will be writing new music for – is still in early development.

Look out for Harris and Bouchard‘s live-action Little Mermaid later this year, and watch the trailer below!

    This looks so bad. I went to comment on the video and they’ve disabled it, so I guess they know it’s bad too.

    this is the one chloe moretz dropped out of… sofia coppola was originally supposed to direct but she dropped out too (watching this trailer that was clearly a wise choice on her part)

  • HG

    Gotcha! Thanks.

  • HG

    Oh wait. I just did some research and I guess there is another Little Mermaid movie in the works… There’s this one, another by Universal with Richard Curtis directing (I think this is the one Chloe dropped out of), and Disney’s movie with Lin-Manuel-Miranda composing. So many adaptations… lol

  • Sansa Squad

    lol gdi I guess it was just wishful thinking on my part assuming there were only two… this is so excessive!!!

  • HG

    Agreed.
