The Little Mermaid fans have been left horrified after being served seriously ‘dark’ food at the movie premiere. 

The live-action adaption of the Disney classic has been one of the most anticipated films of the year.

While some may have raised concerns that the new movie will stray too far from the much-adored and original storyline, others have been unimpressed with the casting of Halle Bailey.

Despite this, many have been eagerly anticipating The Little Mermaid’s arrival in cinemas – but this has also led to quite some drama.

During an Australian premiere of the live-action movie, people were left speechless by what was on offer.

Cinemagoers were given sushi to snack on during the film.

Those who went are now taking to TikTok and sharing their thoughts on the questionable choice of food.

One attendee, named Cody Jon, has taken to the social media platform and shared a clip of the delicacy, alongside the caption: “To whoever planned this. You’re sick. But also brilliant.”

Many people have also taken to the comments and shared their thoughts on the questionable choice of food.

One viewer writes: “I was like why is it dark… I scrolled 3 videos and went OHHHHH.”

Another TikToker adds: “Who on earth was in charge of the menu and WHY.”

“Not them serving up SUSHI,” a third person comments.

While a fourth questions: “Uh sushi with a movie with fish.”

Someone else jokes that they went to the ‘4D’ screening of The Little Mermaid.

However, others have seen the funny side and are saying that it’s actually a clever idea.

“They made it an immersive experience for all the senses,” quips one person.

Another user jokes: “She wanted to be a part of our world.”
