Ok first off I’m going to say up front this is largely going to be a rant so take the bulk of this as pure opinion. The news part of this is that Chloë Grace Moretz, who will be starring in the live action adaption to The Little Mermaid, announced that the little mermaid will be blonde, not the redhead from the Classic Disney animated film. This is because the original work the live action and Disney animated version draw on by Hans Christen Andersen never said she was a redhead. Disney just named her Ariel and made her a redhead, along with a couple other story deviations. The movie is being done by Universal and will be out in 2017.
