Disney plans to start releasing remakes and spin-offs of almost all classic animated projects. The new “little mermaid”, which will be released in 2021, caused a lot of scandals in the network related to the selection of actors. This time the role of the Princess of the underwater world will be played by 19-year-old black actress and R&B singer Holly Bailey.
The plot will remain unchanged
The depths of the seas and oceans hide many secrets. One of them is the existence of mermaids. The story of the charming Princess Ariel, who made a deal with a witch to win the love of a human Prince, has long attracted the attention of viewers. The 2021 film “the little Mermaid” will be a remake and retain the classic plot. This is another film adaptation of the fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen. Ariel falls in love with Prince Eric, but is unable to go ashore. The girl bravely goes to the witch Ursula and gets legs in exchange for a magic voice.
In the cartoon, which was released in 1989, the cult image was collected from three people minimally. The prototype appearance was Alyssa Milano, a 16-year-old star of the project “Who’s the boss here?”. Jodie Benson, a theater actress, was responsible for the voice acting, and the body plastic went to the heroine from model sherry Stoner. It was her movements that were the basis for the sketches of animators.
Modern feature films take the appearance, voice and plastic of a single actress. This condition is especially important to observe if the picture will be promoted to the “Oscar”.
