Disney released the first full trailer for The Little Mermaid, the live-action remake of the 1989 animated classic, during the Oscars.

The first full trailer for Disney’s live-action remake of The Little Mermaid has appeared under the sea, premiering at Sunday night’s Academy Awards (literally during the show – but then again Disney owns ABC).

The marketing team behind it has tried to take advantage of the large TV audience, showing the teaser during Super Bowl LII. OK, so the Oscars have seen a major decline in ratings, but the ceremony is a far more appropriate choice to launch The Little Mermaidand a trailer than, say, NCIS: Sheboygan

The live action The Little Mermaid follows the plot of the 1989 animated classic. Here’s the synopsis from the studio:

“The Little Mermaid” is the beloved story of Ariel, a beautiful young mermaid with a zest for adventure. The youngest of King Triton’s daughters and the most challenging, Ariel longs to know more about the world beyond the sea and, while visiting the surface, he fall for Prince Eric. Although mermaids are forbidden to interact with humans, Ariel must follow her heart. She makes a deal with the wicked sea witch, Ursula, who gives her the chance to experience life on land but in the end puts her life – and her father’s crown – in danger. The film stars singer and actress Halle Bailey (“grow-ish”) as Ariel; Jonah Hauer-King (“A Dog’s Way Home”) as Prince Eric; Tony Award® winner Daveed Diggs (“Hamilton”) as the voice of Sebastian; Awkwafina (“Raya and the Last Dragon”) as the voice of Scuttle; Jacob Tremblay (“Luca”) as the voice of Flounder; Noma Dumezweni (“Mary Poppins Returns”) as Queen Selina; Arthur Malik (“Homeland”) as Sir Grimsby; with Oscar® winner Javier Bardem (“No Country for Old Men”) as King Triton; and two-time Academy Award® nominee Melissa McCarthy (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?” “Bridesmaid”) as Ursula.

The Little Mermaid one of many Disney live-action remakes on the slate. It is coming together Peter Pan & Wendy this year, while Snow White will be released in 2024. The Little Mermaid swimming to theaters May 26th.
