If you thought Ariel's under-the-sea adventures were over, then think again.

Not only is Sofia Coppola bringing the classic Hans Christian Anderson mermaid fantasy back to the big screen with her Little Mermaid adaptation in 2015, but some delightful Disney artwork has just surfaced from the original and iconic 1989 movie.

Check out this lithographed Disney art from Mark Englert and see if you'd stick this on your wall:

Coppola's The Little Mermaid has been in gestation for a number of years. In 2011 screenwriter Abi Morgan submitted a script and said at the time that the story was "so beautiful and exquisite and painful, so we absolutely have to have the original ending", in which the mermaid sacrifices herself for love. Well, this poster has more than a whiff of that darkness about it, so it'll certainly be interesting to see what Coppola has in store for her take...


Can anything beat Disney's The Little Mermaid?
