(DailyWire) Disney just released the trailer for its newest live-action remake, “The Little Mermaid,” and reactions have been strong from the get-go. Like with other projects, detractors are being told it’s racist to dislike this new version.

The studio chose Halle Bailey to portray the finned princess. Because the actress is black, many are already saying any criticism must be racially motivated. However, early critics have plenty of complaints about the movie that have nothing to do with Ariel’s skin color.

First and foremost is the fact that “The Little Mermaid” is being remade at all. The original 1989 cartoon version is considered a true triumph of the Disney catalog. Fans are confused that a movie mostly set under the sea is now being told in live-action form. Plus, there’s the question of what value can be added from telling the same story that’s already been told.

“The Little Mermaid” is the latest in a long line of remakes from the studio. Most of them haven’t been well-received by fans.


Other viewers were confused with how Bailey interpreted the classic song, “Part of Your World.”

“Okay, we need to talk about her singing. Part of your world is supposed to be a song of longing and a light quiet end to her voice. Why is she mixing it up? Like why?” another responded when the trailer came out.
