Honestly, I really like The Little Mermaid even though it's not in my top 3 favorite Disney princess movies. The movie was a success. I appreciate the movie's ideas, but honestly, whether it's the direction, visuals, or even the characters, I was expecting something a bit more Disney. After all, I haven't seen the movie yet. The trailer doesn't really make me want to see it.
I was expecting a more spectacular and intimidating Triton. Haille Bayley is an extremely wonderful singer and performer, but I don't see Ariel in her at 16 years old during her conversation with Eureka, the prince of the original Little Mermaid. I suppose they chose an older prince to make it more realistic, or I don't know. Nonetheless, I have yet to view the film. I'm not going to put my faith in the trailer. I am hoping from the bottom of my heart that it will be fantastic.
