Disney has mutual the first poster for its next live-action alter, The Little Mermaid. The new poster shows Halle Bailey’s Ariel sitting on a rock on the ocean floor, cast at the world above.
This is our best look so far at Ariel from head to, well, fin, as the teaser trailer from D23 abjures from showing very many shots of the character. You can take a look at the poster yourself below.
Ariel’s pose in the poster is nearly remaking a poster from the original and the stage alteration of The Little Mermaid, where Ariel is sitting on a rock fastening out of the ocean, gazing out at the moon. Along the side of Bailey’s Ariel, the movie stars Melissa McCarthy as Ursula, Javier Bardem as King Triton, Daveed Diggs as Sebastian, and Awkwafina as Scuttle.
Disney’s The Little Mermaid is coming to theaters on May 26, 2023. Outside of the teaser trailer, the only other look we’ve had at the movie is an image posted to Bailey’s Instagram of the movie filming off the Italian coast.
Fans are anticipating The Little Mermaid turns out better than Disney’s last live-action alter, Pinocchio, which we called “an exercise in mediocrity.” For more on what’s coming after The Little Mermaid, check out every new Disney live-action alter.
