Lo and behold! There’s a new The Little Mermaid movie coming out this year and it is a live-action film!
The first trailer of the live-action movie of The Little Mermaid from Conglomerate Media and Kingsway Productions was released on Thursday, March 9. Though it is not a Disney movie, it is still based on the famed fairytale from Hans Christian Andersen.
Starring Shirley MacLaine, Poppy Drayton, William Moseley, Loreto Peralta and Gina Gershon. The film follows a young girl (Peralta) and her brother (Moseley) who travels to a small town in Mississippi to find a woman believed to be the real Little Mermaid (Drayton). Veteran actress Shirley Maclaine plays the role of a mysterious woman who knows everything about the Little Mermaid.
The film is directed by Blake Harris and Chris Bouchard and produced by Jessica Steinbrenner. It will be released later this year.
