Will Sofia Coppola's 'The Little Mermaid' Have a Tragic Ending?

Guys…do you remember “The Little Mermaid?” How could you forget it, right?! Sweet Ariel, evil Ursula and the weird phallic-looking palace.

Disney’s “Little Mermaid” of our youth featured a happy ending…where Ariel ditched her friends and her entire family and mer-kingdom for true love. Okay…maybe that isn’t the happiest of endings, but less sad than the original.

The original, written by Hans Christian Andersen, ended with SPOILER ALERT, the mermaid taking her own life in the name of love. So…what will Sofia Coppola’s version of the story look like? Will it be like the “Virgin Suicides” or like “Lost in Translation?”
