What’s going on with The Little Mermaid anyway? Disney’s latest live-action-but-mostly-CGI remake of a known quantity is coming out in 100 days, and there still isn’t an actual trailer for the thing. Disney fanatics were expecting one with the Super Bowl, but instead, days later, there’s this: a new teaser that’s just 30 seconds of muddy footage that teases Melissa McCarthy’s Ursula as if her being a purple Divine with tentacles is some big mystery.
Everyone already knows what this movie is. Why hide anything unless it just looks bad? We can’t even see the talking crab?
Anyway, presumably there will be a real preview between now and when The Little Mermaid hits theaters May 26.
