The first Little Mermaid trailer dropped during the Oscars 2023, giving a closer look at Halle Bailey as Ariel and Melissa McCarthy as Ursula.
McCarthy and Bailey introduced the trailer during Sunday night’s (12 March) ceremony.
“For 100 years the Walt Disney company has produced some of the best heroes, villains and stories of all time and this amazing legacy would not be complete without The Little Mermaid,” McCarthy told the audience. She added that 1,735 film artists technicians and crafts people had come together to tell the story.
“I may be biased,” she said, “but I have enjoyed making this film. It has been a complete joy.”
