A teaser for “The Little Mermaid Live!” starring Auli’i Cravalho as Ariel was just released, and fans also get a sneak peek at Queen Latifah as evil sorceress Ursula. Shaggy shows up as crab Sebastian, John Stamos plays Chef Louis, and Prince Eric will be played by actor Graham Phillips, best known for his roles in “Riverdale” and “The Good Wife.”
According to a description from ABC, “The Little Mermaid Live!” is a “never-before-seen hybrid format that will take viewers on a magical adventure under the sea as live musical performances by a star-studded cast are interwoven into the broadcast of the original feature film.” The live musical event will feature music from the original animated film and the Tony Award-nominated Broadway stage version, originally composed by eight-time Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken.
