If you’re looking for a another Disney live action movie this movie might not meet your expectation. Based on the Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale this live action version of The Little Mermaid is actually pretty spectacular.
A young reporter (William Moseley) and his niece (Loreto Peralta) travel to a small Mississippi town to investigate a lovely and enchanting being they believe to be a real mermaid (Poppy Drayton). The young lady gets taken aback when the mermaid tells her of a fairy tale they have regarding a land born little girl who has a heart of a mermaid.
A woman, played by Shirley MacLaine is a person of importance who has intimate knowledge of Merpeople and and their underwater kingdom. The live action Little Mermaid is set to release later this year 2017.
