Walt Disney Studios has officially released the first trailer for the live-action reimagination of The Little Mermaid.
The new teaser showcases stunning underwater scenes as Ariel, played by actress and singer Halle Bailey, is pictured wandering through various caverns and singing a verse from Alan Menken’s classic track “Part of Your World.”
Below is an official synopsis from Disney:
The Little Mermaid” is the beloved story of Ariel, a beautiful and spirited young mermaid with a thirst for adventure. The youngest of King Triton’s daughters, and the most defiant, Ariel longs to find out more about the world beyond the sea, and while visiting the surface, falls for the dashing Prince Eric. While mermaids are forbidden to interact with humans, Ariel must follow her heart. She makes a deal with the evil sea witch, Ursula, which gives her a chance to experience life on land, but ultimately places her life – and her father’s crown – in jeopardy.
The Little Mermaid is set to debut in theaters on May 26, 2023.
