It looks like it’s set photos season, as we’ve been seeing a lot of current projects find their way online. In a way, it’s the true sign that the film industry is recovering slowly and we’re a step closer to business-as-usual. Now, we’ve covered a lot of set photos from various superhero properties, such as Shazam: Fury of the Gods and Titans. There were also quite a few set photos from Thor: Love and Thunder teasing the franchise’s potential craziness from returning director Taika Waititi. Now, it seems that another Disney property recently started production, and the first set of photos already found their way online for the live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid. Twitter user @cravemedia took to Social Media and shared a few images of the production.

The photos offer our first look at our leads Halle Bailey and Jonah Hauer-King. If we go by their costumes, this may be them rehearsing for the iconic sequence when Ariel saves Prince Eric from drowning. If you look closely, you can see that she has a fin attached to her legs. It doesn’t seem to have any color or scales, which might indicate she is still getting used to moving with it in the water. It’s uncertain if they will take a practical approach with the fin or it might be added digitally. We’ll see if more images find their way online that may give us a look at the duo in full costume.
