The First Trailer For The Live-Action 'Little Mermaid' Movie Is Breathtaking
At first glance, one has to wonder what's exactly happening here. The narrative seems confusing, and Oscar winner, Shirley MacLaine, appears as a storyteller to a couple of kids. There's a mermaid, but she's in a sideshow revue, and then we have a magic girl who may be one too?
Well, as long as it deals with the mermaid and her origins, it should all be great. The film is based (loosely) on Hans Christian Anderson's fairy tale, rather than Disney's animated story line from 1989, and follows a girl (Loreto Peralta) who discovers a young woman in a circus who claims to be a real mermaid (Poppy Drayton).
I guess we'll know exactly when it hits theaters later this year. Watch the trailer below:
