This version of the story of Hans Christian Andersen, the protagonist is trapped in a circus.
Although Disney is in the process of adapting its entire collection of live movies this is not The Little Mermaid that you know from your childhood. It is not the next adaptation of Disney and Lin-Manuel Miranda, nor the other that Universal was developing in development with Chloë Moretz. This is another adaptation of The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Anderson.
There’s a new trailer for a live action ‘The Little Mermaid’ movie. Unfortunately, it’s not the Little Mermaid that most are waiting for. In the long list of projects that Disney has planned, is the live-action version of ‘The Little Mermaid’ of 1989. However, to meet again on the screen to Ariel, Prince Eric, Sebastian or Ursula or the theme ‘Part of him’ will have to wait a little longer.
This is another version of the Hans Christian Andersen story, starring Shirley MacLaine, Poppy Drayton (Downton Abbey), William Moseley (‘The Chronicles of Narnia’), Loreto Peralta (‘No Refunds’) and Gina Gershon ‘Empire’).
The film is directed by Blake Harris and Chris Bouchard, and the screenplay was written by Harris. This story is scheduled to arrive in the summer. In Spain has no release date yet.
Now, the lead mermaid (Drayton) is being controlled by someone who has something that belongs to him: his soul, not his voice. In the story, taken from the 1837 tale, we will see how a young reporter is sent to a Mississippi to investigate the story of a woman who is a mermaid. Her younger sister (Peralta) meets the mermaid (Drayton), who tells her that there is a legend among her people about a girl who is blessed with the soul of a mermaid.
Blake Harris and Chris Bouchard direct the project written by Harris himself. With no release date, the film is expected to hit the charts this summer.
