Popcorn Culture - Review: The Little Mermaid

As far as Disney classics go, The Little Mermaid is one the big ones, and this live action remake has attracted controversy almost from the beginning - particularly for its casting of African-American actress/singer Halle Bailey in the titular role of Ariel. But beyond that, are also questions of whether people are increasingly growing weary of these live-action Disney remakes. So we head under the sea to review this latest outing - which also stars, among others, Melissa McCarthy as Ursula the sea witch, and Javier Bardem as Ariel's father Triton - and discuss whether this version recaptures the magic of its predecessor.
