THE LITTLE MERMAID Makes Waves With Most Views For A Live-Action Disney Remake Trailer Since THE LION KING

The full trailer for The Little Mermaid debuted during The Oscars last Sunday, and over the past few days, has been viewed more times than any other Disney live-action remake teaser since The Lion King.

Disney debuted the first full trailer for The Little Mermaid on March 12 during the Academy Awards ceremony, when stars Halle Bailey (Ariel) and Melissa McCarthy (Ursula) introduced some brand-new footage from the Mouse House's latest live-action remake.

Now, THR is reporting that the trailer has become the most-watched teaser for any Disney live-action reimagining since The Lion King in early 2019.

The promo generated more than 108 million global views in its first 24 hours, topping Aladdin, Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, Mulan and Cruella. It wasn't quite enough to match The Lion King, though, which was viewed a whopping 130 million times when it was released in 2029.

The number of views is said to be inclusive of the broadcast TV audience and digital.

Have another look at the trailer below.

Bailey and McCarthy star alongside Javier Bardem as King Triton, Jacob Tremblay as Flounder, Daveed Diggs as Sebastian, and Awkwafina as Scuttle.

The Little Mermaid will feature music from the animated classic as well as four new songs. Lin-Manuel Miranda, who previously worked with Marshall on Mary Poppins Returns, will also compose original music for Mermaid along with Alan Menken.

The Little Mermaid is the beloved story of Ariel, a beautiful and spirited young mermaid with a thirst for adventure. The youngest of King Triton’s daughters, and the most defiant, Ariel longs to find out more about the world beyond the sea, and while visiting the surface, falls for the dashing Prince Eric. While mermaids are forbidden to interact with humans, Ariel must follow her heart. She makes a deal with the evil sea witch, Ursula, which gives her a chance to experience life on land, but ultimately places her life – and her father’s crown – in jeopardy.

The movie is set to swim into theaters on May 26, 2023.
