New live-action film inspired by the classic Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale. By Conglomerate Media and Kingsway Productions.
The Little Mermaid live-action remake trailer is definitely not Disney.
The first trailer for a live-action version of fantasy tale The Little Mermaid is doing the rounds but rest assured, it has nothing to do with Disney.
In fact, this reimagining – based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairytale – is from Congolomerate Media and Kingsway Productions (definitely not Disney). There is no Sebastian. No Flounder – there’s even no Ariel.
There are, however, Elle (Loreto Peralta) and Cam (William Moseley), a young girl and reporter who travel to a small town in Mississippi to find a woman believed to be the real Little Mermaid. Poppy Drayton (Downton Abbey), Gina Gershon (Empire) and Shirley MacLaine round out the cast.
Disney is currently enjoying a run of remaking its animated classics, scoring one of the biggest box office hits of last year with its live-action Oscar-winning version of The Jungle Book.
Beauty and the Beast is next up (17 March) while a casting call for a planned retelling of Aladdin is currently doing the rounds.
