Little Mermaid First Reactions “Best Live-Action Disney Remake” | Movies | entertainment

Last night the Hollywood premiere of The Little Mermaid took place and now the first reactions have arrived.

Disney’s latest live-action remake adapts the first animated classic of the Renaissance, which originally hit theaters in 1989.

Red-headed Ariel was reimagined as an African-American with Halle Bailey in the title role, for which she received much praise.

Joining the cast of this Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale are David Diggs as Sebastian, Awkwafina as Scuttle, Jacob Tremblay as Flounder, Jonah Hauer-King as Eric, Javier Bardem as King Triton and Melissa McCarthy as Ursula.

It was first reaction reviews from last night’s show, and critics have a lot of good things to say about Rob Marshall’s Disney blockbuster, but others don’t think it lives up to the magic of the original.

Disney’s The Little Mermaid is definitely one of the better live-action adaptations. Halle Bailey pours incredible emotion into Ariel and I got goosebumps watching her, while Melissa McCarthy’s Sebastian steals scenes of Ursula and David Diggs all day long.

We live entertainment
The Little Mermaid is a live-action remake that preserves the heart and soul of the story we know and love, taken even further by a star-perfect performance from Halle Bailey – she was born to be on the big screen, which is why this new show is worth watching.

The little mermaid is adorable! Rob Marshall’s brilliant direction gives us one of Disney’s best live-action remakes and an exhilarating theatrical experience. Halle Bailey is perfect as Ariel and she is the heart of the movie. It’s a magical journey under the sea and I can’t wait to rewatch it!

Film discussion
The Little Mermaid brings it very close to being the best live-action Disney movie, however, it still struggles in the villain department. Halle Bailey and Ariel and I both had goosebumps during her performance. This little mermaid recreates a story like you’ve never seen it before.

The Little Mermaid is Disney’s best live-action adaptation yet. Halle Bailey Ariel. Main props to the sound effects team. Good changes, though, one new song with a lot of auto-tune. This version can be watched under the sea all day long, it was the highlight of the whole thing.

Behind the trailer
Disney’s best adaptation, in that it succeeds not only at nostalgia but as an often stunning movie. Not perfect, but it has that Disney charm! And definitely a must see on the big screen.

Adorable but uneven, The Little Mermaid not only offers classic animated charm but there are plenty of creative touches from Rob Marshall to float the audience’s boats. Halle Bailey and Melissa McCarthy are adorable. Daveed Diggs and Awkwafina provide strong comic relief.

Charming, yet incredibly spotty. Halle Bailey, Jonah Hauer-King, Melissa McCarthy, and Javier Bardem put their hearts and souls into a movie that can’t escape the legacy of animation. Better when it leans toward campy madness, but limits its fantasy elements for no reason.

It’s a simple fact. Are you excited about the little mermaid? You will like it. It’s exactly what you think it is. Are you skeptical and worried about it? This is also true. It looks weird and disjointed. Billy is great, McCarthy’s grammar, the songs work but feel superfluous.

It may seem visually harsh under the sea, but The Little Mermaid finally recreates some of the magic of the original with its timeless story and cast. Dave Diggs and Melissa McCarthy are the standouts, but Halle Bailey is the best [who] She amazes with her wonderful vocals and sentimental charm.

The Little Mermaid hits cinemas in the UK on May 26, 2023 and ratings on May 22 at 2pm BST.
