Look at these things. Isn’t that great?
After a long wait, Disney has finally released the first look at its highly anticipated live-action version of The little Mermaid. The 83-second video, which debuted during the D23 Expo on September 9, featured the main star halle bailey as Ariel, complete with the iconic character’s purple shell bra, green mermaid tail and signature red hair, singing a few lines from one of the film’s most beloved tunes, “Part of Your World.”
“Out of the sea, I wish I could be,” Halle sings, as the camera zooms out to show her sitting inside a cavern filled with contraptions and gadgets galore, “part of that world.”
Elsewhere in the teaser, viewers got a glimpse of Ariel’s underwater friends, including a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it glimpse of her fish friend Flounder, voiced by Room actor Jacob Tremblay.
