The Little Mermaid is coming to life thanks to Disney in an all-new “cutting-edge” television special.
Tuesday (May 16), Disney announced plans for a hybrid-like The Little Mermaid special for this upcoming fall. The Wonderful World of Disney: The Little Mermaid Live will feature a combination of live action, animation and cutting-edge technology.
While no talent has been brought on board as of yet, the show is set to cast a lineup full of celebrity artists whose performances will “weave seamlessly throughout the original animated film,” according to a press release.
Television musicals have seen a soar in popularity recently thanks to the success of specials such as Grease: Live and Hairspray Live!
The Wonderful World of Disney: The Little Mermaid Live will air October 3 on ABC.
