Watch the First Trailer for 'The Little Mermaid' Here

“Once long ago in the deep blue below…”

Loosely based on the Danish fairytale by Hans Christian Anderson, the first trailer for The Little Mermaid is simply heart-wrenching. Elizabeth, played by Downton Abbey’s Poppy Drayton, is contained in a tank and forced to perform as the circus’ mermaid attraction. Reporter Cam (William Moseley) travels to the small Mississippi town with his little sister to learn more about the woman with a tail. While we’re still unsure of her origins, the trailer confirms that the circus’ ringleader has stolen Elizabeth’s soul and with the help of Cam and his sister, is fighting to return to her home in the underwater kingdom.

Take a look at the trailer for the live-action film above.
