The new poster of Disney’s The Little Mermaid was unveiled today. Along with this, the makers revealed that the trailer of the film will be debuted during the 95th Academy Awards.
This new poster pays homage to the 1989 classic of the same name from which the live-action adaption is being made. The plot centres around Ariel, a young mermaid princess who wishes to explore the human world. After a storm leaves injured prince Eric on a nearby beach, Ariel tends to him, sparking a relationship that drives the princess to strike a risky deal in exchange for receiving a set of human legs.
The Little Mermaid is helmed by Oscar-nominee filmmaker Rob Marshall and written by two-time Oscar nominee David Magee, with a live-action story adaptation by David Magee, Rob Marshall, and two-time Emmy winner John DeLuca, based on the short story by Hans Christian Andersen, and the Disney animated film by Ron Clements and John Musker.
It stars singer and actress Halle Bailey, Melissa McCarthy, Jonah Hauer-King, Daveed Diggs, Jacob Tremblay, Awkwafina, Art Malik, Noma Dumezweni and Javier Bardem.
The film is set to be released worldwide on May 26.
