The main novelty is that now we know when we can see The Little Mermaid again on the big screen. The live-action remake starring Halle Bailey in the role of Ariel, will be released on May 26, 2023, which means that the studio will have a strong presence in theaters, at least in the United States, since on Monday Next is a national holiday to commemorate Memorial Day. The tactic of settling on long weekends is something that has brought very good results to Disney movies, being Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings – 95% the most recent case, and that now the pandemic is at its peak and in two years the influx of public could be greater.

Some scenes were filmed in London and it did not take long for several photographs of the protagonist to play Ariel to reach the Internet.

Another of the surprises was the change of date of Nightmare Alley, the new by Guillermo del Toro, which went from the limited premiere that was going to have on December 3 to a much larger premiere on the 17th of that month.
