Most importantly, the teaser gives us the first look into Jonah Hauer-King as Prince Eric. We also get to hear Ursula’s evil laugh, played by Melissa McCarthy.

The Little Mermaid is being helmed by Rob Marshall. The live-action remake by Disney will hit theatres in India on May 26, 2023. The film stars singer and actress Halle Bailey as the protagonist Ariel, Daveed Diggs as the voice of Sebastian, Jacob Tremblay as the voice of Flounder, Awkwafina as the voice of Scuttle. Apart from this, Jonah Hauer-King will feature as Prince Eric, Art Malik as Sir Grimby, Noma Dumezweni as Queen Selina, Javier Bardem as King Triton, and Melissa McCarthy as Ursula.

The story will follow the age-old story of Princess Ariel, who, despite her father King Triton’s dislike for the surface world, falls in love with Prince Eric – a human, whom she saves from a shipwreck. Ariel becomes obsessed with the idea of meeting him again, but not before she faces several obstacles from her father and then the sea witch Ursula.
