So the main selling points in this version, directed by Blitz the Ambassador, are the songs, which are obviously de-emphasized here (as they always are in all trailers for musical films), and the pronounced lesbian currents, which were suppressed in the 1985 Steven Spielberg version. Yes, that’s Halle (Little Mermaid) Bailey as young Nettie. Don’t let that 12.25.23 release date scare you. Okay, you can be scared if you want.
