The original 'The Little Mermaid' movie came out in December 1990 and remains a beloved favourite of children who grew up in the era of now Disney classics — 'Part of Your World' will forever be our go-to karaoke song. With the live-action version on the horizon, Disney has dropped the first trailer for the remake, and it looks and sounds absolutely incredible.
Waves crash on the surface, but below the stormy sea where Ariel played by Halle Bailey lives, it's all coral and calmness. As Ariel twirls around her trinkets, her best friend Flounder follows loyally behind as she sings. As brief as this teaser trailer is, it's so moving. Let's take a look at the reaction on Twitter.
Here's the trailer.
This is the sweetest thread of children's reactions.
People are delighted to have a black Disney princess.
And that voice.
The praise for Halle's voice just keeps rolling in.
It's all so emotional.
Disney's 'The Little Mermaid' is coming to theatres on May 26th, 2023.
