Live Action ‘The Little Mermaid’ Teaser Trailer at D23

Prepare your Dinglehoppers. During the D23 Expo, Disney released a trailer that gives a little taste of what it’s like to be a part of Halle Bailey’s world. Bailey stars as the red-haired mermaid princess, Ariel, who yearns to be a human in the upcoming live-action version of The little Mermaid. While filming the iconic musical number, she shared her “enthusiasm” for the film on stage: “I’m sure all of you here can relate to Ariel and how special she is to all of us. To be a little girl swimming in the pool, imagining I was a mermaid, I never imagined it would come to life [like this].” She also revealed that it was the first time she saw herself in the film. With Bailey, Melissa McCarthy, Jonah Hauer-King and Javier Bardem, The little Mermaid hits theaters on May 26.
