The first trailer for a live-action rendition of  The Little Mermaid is doing the rounds but rest assured, it has nothing to do with Disney.

In fact, this reimagining - based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale - has no Sebastian. No Flounder. There isn't even an Ariel, according to The Independent.

There are, however, Elle (Loreto Peralta) and Cam (William Moseley), a young girl and reporter who travel to a small town in Mississippi to find a woman believed to be the real Little Mermaid. Poppy Drayton (Downton Abbey), Gina Gershon (Empire) and Shirley MacLaine make up the rest of the cast.

Disney's own live-action remake of The Little Mermaid is also in the works.

The non-Disney Little Mermaid will be released later this year. Watch the trailer here:
