In a two-hour special event, ABC will take Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” animated feature film and intertwine it with show stopping live musical performances via cutting-edge technology for an explosive evening honoring one of Walt Disney’s most celebrated classics.
ABC promises that fans of “The Little Mermaid” and Alan Menken and Howard Ashman’s Oscar-winning songs will enjoy this never-before-seen live action/animation hybrid television experience featuring a soon-to-be announced roster of some of their favorite celebrity artists, whose performances will weave seamlessly throughout the original animated film.
“The Wonderful World of Disney: The Little Mermaid Live”! is set to premiere on Tuesday, October 3. The special is produced by Done + Dusted with Hamish Hamilton, Ian Stewart, David Jammy, Katy Mullan, and Richard Kraft, of Kraft-Engel Productions, serving as executive producers.
This is separate from the live-action “The Little Mermaid” adaptation that is being developed by the Walt Disney Studios with Lin-Manuel Miranda. The broadcast seems similar to The Little Mermaid Hollywood Bowl concert which was held last year.
