Um, this is everything. It's being reported that Sofia Coppola will direct a live-action version of The Little Mermaid (!). Yes, that's right—our fave Disney movie ever and our fave director are becoming one, and we're freakin' amped. How could we not be?! Though details of the flick are scarce at the moment, our minds are already wandering. Here are a few possibilities:
The costumes: Sofia is a fashion darling (she's designed a range of bags for Louis Vuitton and is the face of the current campaign), so we're sure the costumes will be cuh-razy. The man to design them? None other than her BFF, Marc Jacobs.
The stars: Who better to play Ariel than Elle Fanning? Her and Sofia previously worked on the 2010 film Somewhere, and she definitely has the enviable locks to play a mermaid renowned for her hair—plus she'd seriously rock an embellished tail. And for her love interest Eric? We recommend Nicholas Hoult. Not only is he a mega-babe, but then J-Law would be at the premiere. <3 <3 <3
The music: It's not clear if the movie will be a musical, but either way, we know it'll have a bangin' soundtrack. Sofia's other works (like The Bling Ring and Marie Antoinette) feature a spot-on selection of tunes, plus she's married to Thomas Mars, singer in cool French band Phoenix. Let's put our money on Grimes doing a cover of Under the Sea and Iggy Azalea infusing Part Of Your World with her sick rapping skills. Yes please!
And now, because we can't resist, watch Part Of Your World below.
