Childhood Ruined: The Little Mermaid Remake

Anyone that knows me, knows that The Little Mermaid is my all-time favorite Disney Movie. When it was released on DVD, my best friend and I had a viewing party with just the two of us and were wearing Little Mermaid accessories that were cheap and plastic but awesome! This movie has some of the best Disney songs that I do know by heart. With that in mind I was heartbroken to hear that they plan on making a live-action movie. The movie industry is now only doing movies on books, comics, remakes, prequels, and sequels. I am here to say that some movies do not need a remake or made into live-action. I know some of you are confused as I often advocate for live-action movies but in this regard I must say no. Making Little Mermaid into live-action is equivalent to making The Lion King into live-action and having The Rock star as Simba. I can deal with The Jungle Book remake even if it seems creepy as hell.

At this time Rebecca Thomas is the current director for the new film. She is known for Electrick children. (Yes you are making the same face as I am and I am just going to leave it alone) Chloe Grace Moretz is set to star in the film that will be released in 2017. While I love Chloe and think she is absolutely adorable, I still cannot get behind this movie. I think this movie might actually make me madder than Meghan Fox as April O’Neill. I think the only way I can get behind this is if the director takes a Maleficent type approach. In other words retell the story in a different way. Hell, make me like Ursula, just do not make it the same damn movie! Okay my rant is done.

What are your thoughts on this remake?
