Conglomerate Media and Kingsway Productions released the first trailer for their upcoming live-action film The Little Mermaid. It is loosely inspired by the Danish fairy tale by author Hans Christian Andersen. This film doesn’t come from Disney but has a few segments drawn from the original 1989 film.

The Little Mermaid Trailer: What Does it Offer?

The Little Mermaid trailer begins with the mystery of the existence of such fairies. However, a young reporter (William Moseley) travels with her younger sister (Loreto Peralta) to find out what it is really about. They discover the truth about the mermaid (Poppy Drayton) who is extremely beautiful and enchanting. There is an evil magician who has captured her soul and tried to control her life (Via Deadline).

Indeed the trailer offers a wide look of what audience will be seen in the film. The backdrop set in the classic era of 1837 in a small town of Mississippi. The film brings a reminiscence of Disney movie which defines the curiosity and the existence of mermaid fairies. The trailer describes the movie as – “An adventure that doesn’t stop at ocean’s edge”. There’s a story ahead of the truth about how a mermaid is able to live a dual life.

Shirley MacLaine plays the role of the mystery woman who read cards and foresees fortune of others. She is aware of the puzzling situation and warns Moseley and her sister to keep away from the mermaid. But, of course, there is no interest generated in the story without obstacles, hurdles and then the ways to come out of it.

Other cast members of the film include Shirley MacLaine, Gina Gershon, and Armando Gutierrez. The upcoming live action film is directed by Blake Harris and Chris Bouchard; Harris also worked on its screenplay. The trailer has received mixed response on social media.
