It continues to build for “thrill and buzz”.little mermaid

A source tells me that director Rob Marshall and her husband, producer John DeLuca, hosted a special screening of a live adaptation of Disney’s 1989 animated classic at the Whitby Hotel in New York City on Sunday night.

On the nearly 80 guest list, Emily Blunt and John Krasinski, Matt Damon and family, Emily Mortimer, Ben Platt and “Parade” co-star Micaela Diamond, Marc Shaiman, Scott Wittman, Bob Balaban and Lynn Grossman, Diane and Brian Sutherland and Scott Ellis . The film’s composer, Alan Menken, and Lin-Manuel Miranda, who co-wrote three new songs for the film, were also present.

I was told that the star-studded audience applauded after each musical number and continued to go wild during a post-show reception. Marshall joked that the heavy downpour in the evening was appropriate because it really felt like “under the sea.”

i got stuck on the star Halle Bailey also Monday night at the Met Gala. “I’m so excited,” he said of the soon-to-be-released movie. “I’m a little worried because it’s been a long time.”

Disney previewed a scene from the movie during its screening. Cinema Con Presentation in Las Vegas late last month. This is the first time the audience has seen such an image. Melissa McCarthy as Ursulawho sings an admirable interpretation of the character’s signature number, “Poor Unfortunate Souls,” in the clip.

“I definitely think it will be different because you can see a modern take on our world and a reflection of the world we live in today,” Bailey said at the Met Gala. “This world we live in is a beautiful melting pot of diversity.”

Hailey was timid when asked if she had signed on for more “The Little Mermaid” movies. He smiled, “Oh, I don’t know.”

Along with Bailey and McCarthy, the cast includes: Jonah Hauer-King as Prince Eric, Javier Bardem as King Triton, Jacob Tremblay as Flounder And Daveed Diggs as Sebastian.

“The Little Mermaid” will hit theaters on May 26.
