The teaser for The Little Mermaid was dropped during the D23 Expo on Friday and it didn't take long before the first footage from the movie was released online. Although the CGI effects still need a lot of work, the teaser managed to highlight the one thing that people have been looking forward to: Halle Bailey performing the iconic Part of Your World from the animated classic. This was enough to convince everyone that the movie will be well worth the wait.
