The Little Mermaid

A first look at Disney Pictures' live-action version of The Little Mermaid has been released.  At Disney's D23 Expo on Friday, a teaser trailer was unveiled for the remake.

As Ariel, Halle Bailey sang some of the iconic song, "Part of Your World," in beautiful underwater shots.

It was the first time Bailey had seen footage of the film on Friday.

She gushed on stage, "When I was a little girl, picturing myself as a mermaid, I never imagined it would come true." Bailey continued, "Feeling all the feelings she feels, her passion, discomfort, and everything she's experiencing was the most beautiful experience of my life." Having Rob direct me and being such a moving force on this film was really an honor for me.”

According to director Rob Marshall, it was important to honor the original film while still reimagining other parts to give the story more depth.

In addition to creating four new songs for the movie, Alan Menken will collaborate with Lin-Manuel Miranda on the original soundtrack.
