The Little Mermaid is Swimming to the Big Screen!

The Little Mermaid is coming to theaters…Again! But this time the fairy tale romance of our favorite crimson haired siren and her Prince Charming will be told in an exciting live action version. Disney is already making Sleeping Beauty come to life this spring, however, it will be told from the evil sorceress Maleficent’s (played by Angelina Jolie) point of view.
