A Live-Action The Little Mermaid To Be Part of Our World, Sofia Coppola In Talks to Direct

It was only a matter of time before a major studio, paging through Disney’s back catalog, realized that there was some fairy tale yet to have the life sucked out of it by a generic live-action adaptation. Ariel, I’m sorry. It’s your turn. But if this is a movie I have no intention of seeing (currently—things could change), at least it’s a movie I have no intention of seeing that might be helmed by a female director.

If you have young ones this might benefit — or an empty spot on your grown-up wall — he’s got a poster print available for sale. The V, W, and X panel makes for an interesting discussion piece on the signature outfits of female characters, wouldn’t you say?

Artist Makes Your Childhood Icons Twisted and Nightmare-Inducing

Or not, in some cases. We know from Sylvain Sarrailh‘s previous set of illustrations that, while he’s good at reimagining childhood favorites in such a way as to make them completely terrifying (Ariel), a lot of his illustrations are just… pretty damned awesome, full-stop. To wit: His take on The Legend of Zelda. I don’t want to spoil it for you, but it’s the first one behind the cut, and you definitely want to see it.

LEGO Friends Introduces Disney Princess Line

When I first heard LEGO was teaming with Disney for Princess sets, my first thought was “Yes! Finally I get some minifigs I’ve always wanted!” And then I realized they weren’t the regular minifigs but more like the recent LEGO Friends sets. I’m personally disappointed but I know a lot of folks really like these, so take a peek at our first preview of the line. And don’t miss Flynn Rider looking utterly lost.

Disney Characters Catch ‘Em All In These Clever Pokémon Trainer Illustrations

Artist Krista Nicholson‘s bright, exciting illustrations of Disney characters are almost too cute. Nicholson has definitely managed to slip some perfect pairing in there, from Vanellope and Jigglypuff to the adorable, but destructive, pairing of Stitch and Pikachu. Even Magikarp finds a Disney character to swim around with! You can see more of Nicholson’s art, featuring more Disney characters and Pokémon, at her Deviantart account.

Things We Saw Today: Someone Managed To Improve The Excellent The Wolverine Poster

The Wolverine struggled through some pretty bad posters before arriving back at the striking sumi-e inspired portraits of its characters. It seems that graffiti artist Poster Boy NYC believed that Logan could look even more intimidating in the poster, however, with the help of some strategic subway poster vandalism. (via Co.Create)
