AnnaSophia Robb, Evan Peters Play Ariel and Eric in Spoof of Sofia Coppola's The Little Mermaid
Funny or Die imagined what Coppola's upcoming live-action version would look like
Curious about Sofia Coppola’s live-action version of The Little Mermaid? Look no further than Funny or Die’s spot-on spoof.
AnnaSophia Robb takes on the role of Ariel in the website’s hilarious video, and she’s got all the trappings of Coppola’s Bling Ring teens: oversized headphones, killer shades and a shell cell phone to text her BFF Flounder
As moody hipster music plays and neon text jumps on screen, Prince Eric (Evan Peters) lounges poolside at the “Shelltau Marmont” – a sly nod to 2010’s Somewhere. Smoking like a chimney and wearing a cardboard crown worthy of Burger King, Peters is just the kind of rich bad boy a modern mermaid lusts after.
“There’s something fishy about you,” he whispers huskily.
Watch Ariel hit the L.A. club scene (karaoke is involved) in the video below.
