As such, it is a reinterpretation of one of the company’s animated classics, which in turn is inspired by the eponymous tale of Hans Christian Andersen. The project was announced in 2016, but production started four years later.
The little mermaid was delayed by the pandemic

Those who can see in the photos that we share are nothing less than Halle Bailey Y Jonah Hauer-King, which in this new version of The little Mermaid they interpret Ariel Y Eric, respectively.
It gives the impression that it is the scene where she saves the life of the prince, which is one of the most remembered of the original animated film. Obviously the quality is not very good, but it was to be expected. The photographer couldn’t get any closer to take pictures.
Filming takes place in sunny Italy

Originally, filming would start in April last year in London, but due to problems the location was changed. Due to everything that has happened, it is difficult to guess when this film will be officially released.
