The Little Mermaid will make a splash on ABC this Fall when the network premieres a two hour special of The Wonderful World of Disney: The Little Mermaid Live! The special will take place on October 3 and this is our reaction:
YES! We are all about this news.
We’re so overwhelmed with feelings of excitement, joy, and wonder at how the beloved animated film will come to life on our screens. According to ABC, The Little Mermaid Live! will feature live musical performances combined with cutting-edge technology to create a spectacular merging of Disney’s classic animated film with live television. Live-action mixed with animation? This is intriguing!
The production will feature the Academy Award-winning songs of Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, so prepare to sing along to your favorite tunes like “Under the Sea” and “Poor Unfortunate Souls.” (We’re feeling like fortunate souls with this news!) Us all day today:
The cast has yet to be announced, but we cannot wait to learn who will be acting and singing and swimming (?) under the sea in this exciting new television event!
