The Mermaids of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

Recently, Disney released a batch of new promotional images of the mermaids that will be featured in the new film Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Unlike the 2005 remake of Peter Pan, in which mermaids only played a minor role, the new Pirates movie is all about our favorite fish-tailed girls! Mermaids are the key to finding the Fountain of Youth, which Jack Sparrow and his merry band of pirates on searching for. Australian supermodel Gemma Ward has been cast as the Mermaid Queen, Tamara, and French actress Astrid Berges-Frisbey is set to play the mermaid Sirena, who is captured by Captain Blackbeard and is supposed to be used to find the Fountain of Youth. Here's the images released by Disney, featuring all the beautiful actresses who have been cast to play these underwater beauties!

And here is the final concept art of the mermaids in their underwater forms. They look creepy, but still beautiful, and I like the crafty way they camouflage to look like kelp or seaweed.

Also, here's a poster for the movie that features only the mermaids, which I was so excited to find. The mermaids are so important, they got their own poster! Now, if only I could find this somewhere to put up in my bedroom...

The film releases on May 20th, so don't forget to go see the mermaids when they splash on the big screen!
