A thirst trap photo of three of the mermen on the set of Disney’s new The Little Mermaid remake is going viral online and the reactions are hilarious.

Disney’s live action remake of the 1989 animated classic is out in Australian cinemas next week, if that’s your thing.

The new flick stars Halle Bailey as Ariel and Jonah Hauer-King as Prince Eric. But a big, big drawcard of the film is funny lady Melissa McCarthy camping it up as the villainous Ursula.

But now tweets from a Disney fan has alerted the Internet to something else: three of the hunky merman characters appearing in the film.

The Little Mermaid shot on the Italian island of Sardinia in the Mediterranean. And the thirst trap photo of the trio on a bus wearing special effects marks has gone viral on Twitter.

The same Twitter user also posted another pair of photos allegedly of the film’s merfolk.

And on Twitter, people are suddenly very, very interested.

The first photo is legit, because two of the men in the photo have confirmed they’re in the Disney film.

Jacob Maynard has an emoji of a merman on his Instagram and a “Merfolk” credit in the film on his CV.

Stefano Marshall also posted a photo this week confirming he’s in the new Disney film. The third, Marcus Hodson, is a London-based model.

The Little Mermaid is in cinemas next week

The Little Mermaid is in Australian cinemas next Thursday (May 25).

Last week, Melissa McCarthy and RuPaul’s Drag Race queen Nina West shared a cute moment on the blue carpet at the premiere.

Melissa McCarthy says her performance as Ursula – a character originally modelled on drag queen Divine – took inspiration from drag queens.

“I’m a huge, huge fan of drag shows and the whole art of it and the entertainment of it,” Melissa told EW last month.

“There’s a drag queen that lives in me. I’m always right on the verge of going full-time with her.”
