The Trailer for This Little Mermaid Is Part of a Different World

By

While Disney is out repurposing its entire vault into live-action fare and modernizing (?) beloved characters as skater dudes, the company isn’t the only one doubling down on fairy tales. The trailer for a live-action Little Mermaid has debuted, and it’s safe to say that Lindsay Lohan wants no piece of it. Directly adapting Hans Christian Andersen’s supremely non-Disney source material, this The Little Mermaid, brief musical presence aside, suffers from an extreme lack of singing crab. The movie stars Poppy Drayton and is directed by Blake Harris, though the production underwent a lot of turnover — at various points, Sofia Coppola was attached to direct and Chloë Moretz planned to star. The human world, it’s a mess.
