New Little Mermaid Photos Bring to Life the Magical Story!
Are you ready for the new, re-imagined Little Mermaid coming to theaters this May?
Entertainment Weekly shared 10 exclusive new Little Mermaid cast photos that bring to life the magical story!
The dynamic cast looks brilliant, and the photos are amazing! They have us so excited for this new Disney release starring Halle Bailey.
Ariel, Ursula, Prince Eric and more! Let’s take a closer look at what these new photos reveal!
Exclusive New Photos
Daveed Diggs voices Sebastian in The Little Mermaid.
He is shown here with Lin-Manuel Miranda, who composed lyrics for an original song called “Scuttlebutt.” This is a brand new duet sung by Sebastian and Scuttle.
Grammy nominee Halle Bailey plays Ariel in the new film.
She is shown saving Prince Eric from drowning in a shipwreck during a massive thunderstorm. This chance encounter is the start of their love story.
Hauer-King (playing the role of Eric) describes Ariel and Eric as “kindred spirits” and good friends in the movie.
The friendship between Hauer-King and Bailey was authentic on and off screen.
We love the music from the original Little Mermaid, and fans can expect multiple new songs in the new live action movie.
“For the First Time,” is a new song Ariel sings as she tours the new world with Eric.
Amazing Cast Photos
Hauer-King wanted to portray Prince Eric with more depth and is a more fully dimensional character in the live-action film.
“I really understood him as this very adventurous but quite restless spirit who didn’t feel fully at home in his own home, and felt quite trapped and restricted behind the four walls of the castle, and was really about looking outwards rather than inwards.”
Javier Bardem plays King Triton, King of the seas and the ruler of his oceanic domain.
He is also Ariel’s father and struggles like many parents with the fear of losing his child.
Ariel’s aunt, Ursula, is a sea witch played by Melissa McCarthy.
The evil enchantress manipulates Ariel into a dangerous bargain!
So beautiful! Here is first-look at Noma Dumezweni as Queen Selina, mother of Prince Eric.
The Little Mermaid is directed Rob Marshall who went to great lengths to get the perfect shot for his movie.
This dramatic photo confirms Ariel’s fascination with the human world as she brings the unconscious Eric back to shore.
So many great photos. Get ready to make a splash! The new movie arrives in theaters May 26th and fans are ready! Are you ready to experience the new Little Mermaid?
