    So many great things about this movie! The smallest child's name is Claire (no lines in the trailer, but apparently a couple in the movie). She's a sweet, adorable little singer. I've crashed hard for this little girl! The story line and artwork look amazing. And NOW Merbellas? I so have to pre-purchase this movie! <3

    For the movie's sake, I wish they hadn't chosen the title "The Little Mermaid." When it first aired on YouTube, it got so many more dislikes than likes, and there were some pretty terrible comments calling it a bait and a ripoff. It must have gotten so bad that now they have both likes and comments disabled. Lots of people have been anticipating a live action remake of Disney's version, and everyone seems to be disappointed by this.

    I'm really hoping that people end up coming to see and enjoy this movie, it looks like it is going to be fantastic.

    hilarious because it literally was filmed in the time it took any of these studios to even fully confirm or cast. so really people think it's a knock off but was in production long before the others were confirmed.

    Bumping this thread because I went to the premier of this movie last night at the Tampa Theatre. The official release is Aug 17, 2018. The Merbella tail and top (& hair clips) were my favorite part! It was a beautiful blue and yellow tail with tattered fins & obvious Merbella fluke. There wasn't a ton of tail screen time but when it was on the screen it was beautiful.

    After the film showing the actors and directors did a Q&A. Poppy Drayton, the mermaid, talked about how difficult it was to get into the tail. She talked about all the swimming and training that she did. Then she talked about the underwater filming they did at Weekie Wachee. I will post some of the video I took.

    The film itself was obviously a small budget film directed st very young kids. Even though their were some big name actors: Shirley MacLain (the grandmother), William Moseley (the male lead, Narnia & the Royals), and others like Jo Marie Payton (Harriet Winslow from Family Matters) ...the acting was really substandard. Polly was the only, sort of, stand out in the film. She had a song (that she really sang) in the middle of the film that was truly beautiful!

    The circus props were really fun. They were from an authentic 1930's circus. And finally there was a bit of a cameo by a real elephant that was sort of confusing (Spoiler alert: Will let the elephant go free just as he was trying to free the mermaid). They sort of talked about her during the Q&A, saying she was a bit hands on with Will and tossed him around a bit during filming. And she liked jolly ranchers (for some reason that comment really stood out to me. LOL)

    I'm looking forward to others seeing the film and giving their thoughts about it.

    I've been sceptical about changing the original movie. Was it still good?

    My real review is a bit harsh, honestly.

    The story line was OK but got weirdly magical at the end. I don't want to ruin it for anyone who might love it. And little kids will probably still love it. Poppy probably put it best when she was asked what she thought of it after seeing it for the first time. She said with a soft loving look, "Its really sweet."

    It isn't a movie I'd pay to see in theater (as a 40+ year old hardcore mermaid fan). There was too much really bad acting, awkward pauses, bad makeup, and inconsistencies for me to truly enjoy it. It felt like there was a lot of backstory that may have been cut out as there were some characters who had a big presence at the end who barely had scenes throughout. I may be totally biased but other than the mermaid in the tank, the underwater scenes and mermaid transformations I could do without.

    Again, I loved the mermaid tail!

    The film is on Netflix already, so I watched it. I thought the movie sucked. And a hokey wizard instead of a sea witch?! Come on really?! I was very disappointed cause I wanted so much for it to be good. But I looooove the beautiful tail and the mermaid is so pretty. It’s worth watching only for the magnificent merbella tail
