Today, in an Instagram post, Disney released the official poster for the upcoming live-action film, “The Little Mermaid.” In addition, on Sunday, March 12, the first official trailer will run during the Oscars telecast.
For the past couple of months, Walt Disney Studios have been giving fans a little taste of what they can expect from this live-action remake when it hits theaters on May 26, 2023.
Halle Bailey plays Princess Ariel in the movie “The Little Mermaid“. Other cast members include Jonah Hauer-King as Prince Eric, Melissa McCarthy as Ursula, and Javier Bardem as King Triton. Noma Dumezweni will portray the new character Queen Selina. Additionally, Daveed Diggs will voice Sebastian, Jacob Tremblay will voice Flounder, and Awkwafina will voice Scuttle, who has been reimagined as a female diving bird instead of a male seagull.
In January, we reported that Walt Disney World was looking to hire performers who look like the live-action Ariel as portrayed by Halle Bailey.
The 95th Oscars, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, will air live on ABC-TV from the Dolby Theatre at Ovation Hollywood. It will also stream live on the ABC app, Hulu Live TV, YouTubeTV, AT&T TV and FuboTV.
