The live-action remake of The Little Mermaid has been plagued by controversy since its inception. The first major controversy came when it was announced that Halle Bailey would play Ariel. Bailey is a Black woman, and some fans of the original animated film were upset that Ariel would not be white.
The next controversy came when it was announced that Melissa McCarthy would play Ursula. McCarthy is a white woman, and some fans of the original animated film were upset that Ursula would not be played by a drag queen.
In the trailer, Flounder, Ariel’s best friend, looks very different from the animated version. He has a more realistic appearance, with scales and fins that look like they could belong to a real fish. Some fans of the original animated film were upset by the change, saying that Flounder looks too scary.
In addition to the controversies mentioned above, there have also been concerns about the film’s use of CGI. Some critics have said that CGI looks too fake and that it takes away from the magic of the original animated film. Others have defended the use of CGI, saying that it is necessary to create a realistic underwater world.
Despite the controversy, The Little Mermaid is rated at 68%, on Rotten Tomatoes.
