The First Trailer for the Live-Action 'Little Mermaid' Is Here, But This Is Not the Story You Remember

HOLY GOODNESS, the first official trailer for the live-action Little Mermaid is finally here, and it looks beyond magical.

As you'll quickly notice, this story isn't the one you know by heart—it's definitely part of a different world. Based on Hans Christian Anderson's 1837 story as opposed to the animated Disney movie, this version is about a young reporter and his niece who discover a mermaid at a carnival and believe that she is "the little mermaid." 

Starring Shirley MacLaine, Poppy Drayton, William Moseley, Loreto Peralta and Gina Gershon and directed by Chris Bouchard and Blake Harris, the movie looks so enchanting despite its complete disregard for the Disney version. I seriously can't wait.

The Little Mermaid makes its debut later this year.
