WATCH: Funny Or Die’s Fake Trailer For Sofia Coppola’s The Little Mermaid

Sofia Coppola is probably going to direct a live-action adaptation of the classic story The Little Mermaid. But that could be years off still. Why should we have to wait till whenever that is to see what it might be like?

Fortunately for y’all the Internet exists and there are some hilariously twisted people that inhabit it. The gang at Funny or Die have put together what they think the trailer for a Coppola-helmed Ariel would look like, and it’s all just about bang on correct.
Taking liberal shots at Sofia’s other films like Lost in Translation, The Bling Ring and Somewhere, we get all the requisite boxes checked off.
Waif-ish female lead? Yep.
Rumpled, softly spoken male lead? Got it.
Overloaded indie soundtrack including a bang-on parody of Azealia Banks and liberally sprinkled steel drums to fit the under the sea them? You bloody well know it.
