It's been over a year since we've gotten an update on Disney's live-action remake of 1989 The Little Mermaid. After casting Halle Bailey as Ariel, Disney has finally shown its 1st look at the movie.
The trailer shows Bailey as Ariel, swimming through her treasure trove of human objects and singing Part of That World.
The trailer rolled out at Disney's D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, on Friday, and The Little Mermaid also got a release date of May 26, 2023.
