ABC to Present The Wonderful World of Disney: The Little Mermaid Live

The Little Mermaid

ABC is bringing The Little Mermaid to live television. The Disney animated 1989 classic will be performed during a live 2 hour musical event. The story of Ariel’s quest to gain her legs and fall in love with her prince will include animation accompanied by live-action performances from a cast of celebrity performers.

This isn’t an entirely new concept for Disney. Last summer a similar performance took place at the Hollywood Bowl and included the talents of Sara Bareilles as Ariel, Rebel Wilson as Ursula, Darren Criss as Eric, Tituss Burgess as Sebastian, John Stamos as Chef Louis, Norm Lewis as Triton, and Joshua Colley as Flounder.

The Wonderful World of Disney: The Little Mermaid Live will be produced by Hamish Hamilton, Ian Stewart, David Jammy, Katy Mullan, and Richard Kraft. The cast of celebrity artists has not been announced yet.

The Wonderful World of Disney: The Little Mermaid Live comes to ABC on October 3, 2017. What do you think of this news?
