Just Released: New Little Mermaid Teaser
Like most families, ours loves Disney and Disney movies. My wife and daughter’s favorite Disney movie is “Little Mermaid” so we are preparing and anticipating heading under the sea on May 26th of this year. If you love Ariel too, then you should do the same. And if case you didn’t know who is playing the role of Ursula, you’re going to absolutely love it!
But we don’t have to wait for the new teaser for the live-action film The Little Mermaid, because it has arrived.
Today, Walt Disney Studios released a new look at the highly anticipated film starring Halle Bailey, who transforms into Ariel. We get the chance to see what Ariel and Eric look like, and get a chill from Ursula at the end.
The announcement read “Just 100 days until it arrives in theaters!”
In September 2022, Bailey told Good Morning America at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, that the upcoming film is a “twist on Ariel’s strength and powerfulness.” She also shared that “She’s just so strong in this film and I’m so grateful to play her.” I think any actress would give anything for this role. Bailey, who is half of the group Chloe X Halle, was cast in the role in July 2019.
The movie is being directed by Rob Marshall. Also starring alongside Bailey is Javier Bardem as King Triton, Jacob Tremblay as Flounder, Jonah Hauer-King as Prince Eric, Melissa McCarthy as Ursula, Daveed Diggs as Sebastian, and Awkwafina as Scuttle.
The Little Mermaid premieres in theaters on May 26.
