The Little Mermaid 2018
I heard that Hollywood are planning a live action remake of Disney’s The Little Mermaid, so I was inspired to create my own image of how it should look.
Given that humans deposit tons of plastic into the ocean every year, it no longer seems fitting that the villain of the movie should be an octopus sea-witch named Ursula. Let’s face it, this no longer cuts it as a viable threat to the main character or her lobster buddy Sebastian, whom I have cynically done away with. Furthermore, Ariel strives to become human in the story and I wonder if she still feel this way given that we are the enemy.
On a side note, those bikini-shells are probably a bit small now that she’s older.
