The little mermaid is the next live-action adaptation of the popular Disney princess. And no trailer has been released yet. Unfortunately, there’s a reason no trailer has been released even though the film is only a few months away from its theatrical release.
In an interview with Collider, the film’s director Rob Marshall explained why the trailer isn’t out for fans just yet. It turns out it’s not ready yet. The film director said the film took more than four years to make due to COVID and other production issues. And there’s also the complex things that happen during production, like the film’s choreography, because it has no gravity.
“The little mermaid I’m finishing now took four and a half years. COVID kind of got, you know, right in the middle. We were a week away from filming and we shut down and then we had to come back up. It’s the most challenging film I’ve ever made because of the visuals and how to create them. I mean, every moment of the entire film is choreographed because it had to be, because there’s no gravity. How you do that? That was crazy. I mean to find out how we do it.”
When asked if the film will be ready, he said it should be ready by March, giving Disney just two months to release a trailer before the film comes out.
“So I have to say I’m now really looking forward to answering that question over the next few months when I’m done. This film is expected to be ready by the end of March.
At the moment, Disney released two teasers for the upcoming movie starring Halle Bailey as the mermaid princess. The second teaser showed more of the underwater kingdom and featured other of Ariel’s sisters, Prince Eric, played by Jonah Hauer-King, and sea witch Ursula, played by Melissa McCarthy.
The little mermaid will float to theaters on May 25, 2023.
