This version of the story is loosely based on the original Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale, which was originally published in 1837—not the 1989 Disney version with Ariel. In this story, Elizabeth, the mermaid, is found at a circus by a reporter and his niece.



You can expect the movie to hit theaters this summer.

Watch the trailer below and let us know in the comments if you're excited.
