Disney’s Live-Action ‘The Little Mermaid’ Trailer is Nearly Identical to the Original Animated Version – Watch the Side-by-Side Comparison!

Disney’s live-action remake of The Little Mermaid is set to release on May 26th, and the recently released trailer has caused quite a stir online. The trailer for the upcoming movie is nearly shot-for-shot identical to the original animated version that was released in 1989.

Disney has a track record of remaking classic animated films into live-action versions, and in true Disney fashion, they have followed a similar approach to the trailer for The Little Mermaid. This approach may help to spark nostalgia in viewers who grew up watching the animated version and give them a glimpse of what they can expect from the upcoming movie.

For those who may not be familiar with the story of The Little Mermaid, it follows the adventures of Ariel, a young mermaid who longs to explore the world beyond the sea. She falls in love with a human prince and makes a deal with the evil sea witch, Ursula, to experience life on land. However, this decision places her life and her father’s crown in danger.

The live-action version stars Halle Bailey as Ariel, Jonah Hauer-King as Prince Eric, Daveed Diggs as the voice of Sebastian, Awkwafina as the voice of Scuttle, Jacob Tremblay as the voice of Flounder, Noma Dumezweni as Queen Selina, Art Malik as Sir Grimsby, Javier Bardem as King Triton, and Melissa McCarthy as Ursula.

The trailer for the upcoming movie was released during the Oscars on March 12th, and it has already garnered a lot of attention online. The side-by-side comparison of the original animated trailer and the live-action trailer has further increased the anticipation for the release of the movie.

It remains to be seen whether the live-action version of The Little Mermaid will be a hit with audiences and critics alike. However, the identical trailer may have given viewers a sense of comfort and familiarity with the story that they know and love.

As we eagerly await the release of The Little Mermaid, we can’t help but wonder if other Disney classics will receive the same treatment in the future. For now, we’ll have to wait and see.
