the little mermaid live

Since its early days, Disney used the technique of rotoscoping / live-action reference, in which they filmed real actors performing a scene and then traced over it frame by frame to create the animated version. While the animators did not copy line for line, the footage would help them visualize the postures and movements of the characters, resulting in a more realistic sequence.

this is my the little mermaid klance au, and it’s only the beginning


In the morning the storm had ceased; but of the ship not a single fragment could be seen. The sun rose up red and glowing from the water, and its beams brought back the hue of health to the prince’s cheeks; but his eyes remained closed. The mermaid kissed his high, smooth forehead, and stroked back his wet hair; he seemed to her like the marble statue in her little garden, and she kissed him again, and wished that he might live.

Disney thinks they’re sneaky

Okay. I think Disney is setting us up for something here.

Something no one is gonna see coming…

Okay. Disney is on their live action kick and that’s all good, and great, and wonderful.

But let’s look at some of the movies that have come or will be coming out in the future.

Beauty and the Beast (2017)

The Lion King (2019)

Aladdin (2019)

(tbh I don’t even wanna talk about the casting choices…)


The Little Mermaid (TBA)

Yes. I know that’s Anna Kendrick in an SNL skit. BUT back to the point

All of these movies have one thing in common that stands out in my head. The all provided iconic scenes that ultimately turned into trailers for this little guy

That’s right. Everyone’s favorite little, blue alien, Stitch.

I believe Disney’s ultimate goal is to actually make a live action Lilo and Stitch movie and all of these remakes are just so they can reintroduce it just how he was introduced the first time… through other movies’ trailers.

Come on, not even Disney can deny that a live adaptation of Lilo and Stitch would be fantastic.

So what do you think? Is Disney setting us ip for a Live Action Lilo and Stitch? or am I just reading way too into things and living on a pipe dream?
