Aerial Photos Show Live-Action ‘The Little Mermaid‘ Set Closed Due to Coronavirus. Daily Mail Celebrity has shared images from SplashNews, showing aerial shots of The Little Mermaid and Jurassic World 3 set pieces that are currently sitting in their respective lots at Pinewood Studios.

The images feature what looks to be Prince Eric’s ship for The Little Mermaid, and a snowy mountain of sorts on the set for Jurassic World 3: Dominion. Though these images give little insight to what will happen within the films it is fascinating to see the “bare bones” of film making before VFX are added in to the take.

Filming for the live-action movie has been postponed indefinitely as the world faces the COVID-19 Pandemic. Leaving the sets looking more like ghost towns rather than the bustling production we are used to seeing on set.

One of the stars for the film, Daveed Diggs (Sebastian) shared that this version of The Little Mermaid will “give some power back to Ariel”, who very much fit the “damsel-in-distress” motif in the original animated film. “Some of the updates they’ve done to the story are really important in terms of giving some more power back to Ariel,” Diggs said to Variety. “It’s fun to work on something that’s so intentional in the idea of ‘If we’re going to make this now, we’re not going to leave this alone as a time capsule.’ Let’s make it for now.”

Famed Composer and Disney Legend, Alan Menken recently shared the news that not only is the soundtrack recorded and completed for Disney’s live-action The Little Mermaid, but there will be four new songs featured in the film co-composed by Lin-Manuel Miranda (Moana, Hamilton), one of them rumored to be a solo for Prince Eric (Jacob Tremblay).

The Cast for Disney’s Live-Action The Little Mermaid includes: Halle Bailey (Ariel), Jonah Hauer-King (Prince Eric), Melissa McCarthy (Ursula), Javier Bardem (King Triton), Jacob Tremblay (Flounder), Daveed Diggs (Sebastian), and Awkwafina (Scuttle).
