I've got to admit, I'm not entirely sure how I feel about this live adaptation of The Little Mermaid. It's certainly darker than the animated movie, which makes sense since it's a spin on the Hans Christian Anderson's grim version of the story. It's also important to note that Disney plans on making their own live action version entirely separate from this third-party produced film.
Remember Peter from the Chronicles Of Narnia film series, played by William Moseley? He looks like this and is back on the big screen, this time as Elizabeth's love interest/ a mermaid skeptic named Cam.
Mermaids in Mississippi? Creepy mermaid-capturing circus ringmasters? You'll find both plus more strange twists on the story in the trailer below.
The Little Mermaid will hit theaters August 17th.
