With a stunning background score and surreal underwater CGI imagery, the reimagining of the studio’s animated musical classic from 1989 tells the beloved story of Ariel, a beautiful and spirited young mermaid with a thirst for adventure. The youngest of King Triton's (Bardem) daughters, and the most defiant, Ariel (Bailey) longs to find out more about the world beyond the sea. She makes a deal with the evil sea witch, Ursula (McCarthy), which gives her a chance to experience life on land, but ultimately places her life - and her father's crown - in jeopardy. Directed by Oscar nominee Rob Marshall (»Chicago«, »Mary Poppins Returns«), this colorful family film continues Disney's current live-action winning streak (»The Beauty and the Beast«, »The Lion King«, and »The Jungle Book«) with an update that gives the original a visual overhaul without overwhelming its sweet, soulful charm. With an enchanting, star-studded cast, beautifully crafted songs – both old and new - and a painterly eye for detail, this undeniable visual treat offers a faithful yet fresh retelling that honors its beloved source material.
