Disney Pictures has released its first look at the live-action The little mermaid. A teaser trailer for the remake was unveiled at Disney’s D23 Expo on Friday.
It showed beautiful underwater footage of Hall Bailey starring as Ariel singing part of the legendary song “Part of Your World”.
Bailey said she first saw footage of the film on Friday.
“As a little girl swimming in the pool and imagining I was a mermaid, I never thought that would come to life,” she gushed on stage. “The three days of filming Part of Your World was the best experience of my life.” Bailey continued, “…feeling all the emotions she’s feeling, her passion, her discomfort and everything she’s going through. It was so exciting for me to play those emotions and it was truly an honor to have Rob direct and be such a moving force in this film.”
