Conglomerate Media and Kingsway Productions released the first ever trailer of the live action and unanimated film, ‘The Little Mermaid.’ Based on the movie trailer, this film will include surprising plot twists and a fascinating drama no one expected. Though the release date is not set and stone, the movie is expected to come out this summer 2017.
The trailer revealed a riveting storyline based on the familiar tale we all know and love. Moreover, the cast for this film appears to fit the roles seamlessly as it includes popular names who fit the characters in the story. The cast includes ‘Downton Abbey’s’ Poppy Drayton, William Moseley from ‘The Chronicles of Narnia,’ and Shirly MacLaine.
Even though the storyline is memorable because of the animated film, there are apparent differences from the Disney film. To further clarify, this fairy tale film is based on the 1837 classic produced by Christian Andersen, not the animated Disney movie. In Andersen’s story, the little mermaid loses her soul, but in the Disney film, she loses her voice. Also, the movie is set in Mississippi and a little boy (Moseley) is sent to investigate a story about a women who is actually a mermaid.
The story of The Little Mermaid has come in various renditions over time. There are an assortment of plays on the stage, movies on screen, and pieces of literature. This rendition and interesting take on Andersen’s story is directed by Blake Harris and Chris Bouchard from a screenplay by Harris. The executive producer is Jessica Steinbrenner.
Since the film is not Disney or exactly what we expected based off the trailer, the anticipation is even higher. This film is undoubtedly a must-see and can be enjoyed by all ages.
