Hans Christian Anderson‘s The Little Mermaid, first published in 1837, has been adapted into a great variety of media. The most famous is Disney’s animated musical of the same name, which helped kickstart the revitilization of Disney animation when it was released to great success in 1989.
So any new adaptation of The Little Mermaid is probably going to be seen as a remake of Disney’s movie, whether or not that is really the case.

We’ve featured many of artist Eric Tan‘s creations in past Cool Stuff columns: we’ve spotlighted his work for past Pixar productions, X-Men, LOST, among other things. Tan has been creating a series of posters for the Indiana Jones film series. You can see his Raiders of the Lost Ark and Temple of Doom posters in our linked Cool Stuff articles. Last month Disney published new posters from Tan of two of Disney’s animated classics, which he created specifically for The Art of Disney Princess book. Tan explains his process on his blog:
Little Mermaid came out when I was in high school and reinvigorated the entire Animation studio which influenced me to want to get into field that as a career. Although I found I didn’t have the chops for animation, it led me down the path to my current position with Disney and it’ll always be one of those films that reminds me of how I fortunate I am to end up where I did. Sleeping Beauty was just an amazing piece of artistic vision. The look of the film made an impact on me as a kid and I remember trying to draw the Maleficent dragon over and over with less than stellar results.
No word on when Disney will release these wonderful posters as art prints through ACME Archives, although we know it has to happen sooner or later. Check out both posters, in a larger resolution, after the jump.
