A Crazy, Live-Action ‘Little Mermaid’ Musical is Coming

In the same vein as The Sound of Music Live and Grease Live, ABC is entering the live musical game. It was recently announced that ABC will host a live-action musical based on Disney’s 1989 animated The Little Mermaid

According to The A.V. Club, The musical will “intertwine” the 1989 animated film “with show stopping live musical performances via cutting-edge technology.”

The two-hour event, called The Wonderful World of Disney: The Little Mermaid Live will debut Tuesday, Oct. 3rd. Lin-Manuel Miranda, everyone’s favorite jack of all trades and star/creator of Hamilton, is working on a live-action film version of the underwater Disney classic. How will it all be done?! We can’t wait to see…
