The highly anticipated live-action remake of Disney’s classic tale, The Little Mermaid, is set to hit theaters soon, and the recent Little Mermaid trailer has given us a glimpse into the undersea world of Ariel, our beloved mermaid princess. With a star-studded cast and new music by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Alan Menken, this retelling promises to be a fresh take on the timeless story. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at the trailer and explore what we can expect from the upcoming movie.
The New Trailer: What’s Different?
In the new trailer, we see Ariel (played by Halle Bailey) rescuing Prince Eric from a shipwreck, a scene that is much more fiery and intense than in the original movie. We also get a more in-depth look at the undersea world that Ariel wants to leave behind, which begs the question: why would anyone want to leave this magical place ruled by the ocean? The trailer sets the stage for a story that will explore the depths of Ariel’s desires and what she’s willing to risk to achieve them.
The Cast: A Star-Studded Lineup
The live-action Little Mermaid features an impressive cast of actors and voice actors. Melissa McCarthy plays the conniving sea witch Ursula, while Javier Bardem plays the overprotective King Triton. Jonah Hauer-King stars as the dashing Prince Eric, and Daveed Diggs lends his voice to the musical crab Sebastian. Awkwafina voices the zany seagull Scuttle, and Jacob Tremblay voices Flounder, Ariel’s best friend. With such a talented group of actors and voice actors, we can expect nothing less than an exceptional performance.
The Music: A New Twist on Classic Tunes
One of the most exciting aspects of the new Little Mermaid is the addition of new music by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Alan Menken. Miranda, the mastermind behind the hit musical Hamilton, brings his unique style to the table, while Menken, who composed the music for the original movie, adds his signature touch. We can expect to hear fresh takes on classic tunes like “Part of Your World” and “Under the Sea,” as well as new songs that will add depth and dimension to the story.
