Cinema Royale: Going Under The Sea With ‘The Little Mermaid’ (Special Guest: Karen Peterson)

On the latest episode of Cinema Royale, we’re going under the sea to review Disney’s live-action remake of The Little Mermaid! My good friend Karen Peterson of the Citizen Dame podcast joins me to discuss the “controversial” casting of Halle Bailey as Ariel, whether Ariel’s aquatic animal pals look weird with mouths, and whether Disney will ever again cast a charismatic actor to play a Disney prince. Sure doesn’t seem like it.

I’m on record predicting The Little Mermaid will be the biggest box office hit of the year. Just how wrong am I going to be here, anyway? We’ll talk about that and a lot more!
