If you’re thinking of taking your kids to see The Little Mermaid 2023, and looking for a spoiler-free parent review, don’t worry, I gotchu. And details (without spoilers) to help you decide if the live action Little Mermaid is scary for kids you might want to bring.
I know there are a lot of people who are excited for every new Disney remake announced. I am not one of those people. So the live action version of The Little Mermaid was just the next up on my list of movies to go into, hoping for the best, but expecting the worst. Whether because I wasn’t hoping for much, or because it truly was done well, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised.
I brought my three littles with me. A 12 year old daughter who has seen the original The Little Mermaid many times, but not in a few years. My 10-year-old son who disdains princess movies, and my 5-year-old daughter who loves them. I get into their thoughts in our kids review (also without spoilers).
