The Disney studio continues to reanimate its animated classics in the form of movies, and this time it’s the 1989 cartoon The Little Mermaid. Its remake, directed by Rob Marshall, will be released on May 25. American singer and actress Halle Bailey played the main role in the film.

The plot has not changed: the mermaid Ariel, the daughter of the underwater king Triton, wants to learn more about the world on the surface and during a storm saves Prince Eric and falls in love with him. To be able to see him again, Ariel makes a deal with the witch Ursula.

The film is scheduled to be released worldwide on May 26, but in Ukraine it will start a day earlier – on May 25.
