Disney gals, are we ready!? The trailer for the brand new live action Little Mermaid has arrived and it’s just as good as we expected it to be.

We’ve been waiting for what feels like forever for the brand new live action version of Disney’s iconic Little Mermaid starring Halle Bailey.

Halle was cast in the highly anticipated film back in 2019 and it wasn’t until September 2022 that we got our first sneak preview of the out of this world film. We were finally presented with the jaw dropping trailer during the Oscars last night and well… it was just as amazing as we expected.

We’ve had some good and bad Disney movie adaptations including The Lion King, Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast all exceeded expectation but sadly Pinnochio was a big nay, for its adaptation. Thankfully it seems Rob Marshall has done a rather epic job at grabbing the essence of the original Little Mermaid story.

The movie boasts some new songs as well as old from the original composer Alan Menkin as well as some fabulous scores from Lin-Manuel Miranda.

The cast is well rounded and includes Halle Bailey as Ariel of course, Jonah Hauer King as Prince Eric, Javier Bardem as King Triton and Melissa McCarthy as Ursula. While Daveed Diggs, Jacob Tremblay and Awkwafina will voice thecharacters of Sebastian, Flounder and Scuttle.

Get your voices ready and your tails set as we join our favourite characters under the sea for the long awaited Disney live action remake of the Little Mermaid which will hit cinema screens May 26 2023.
