First Look: Auliʻi Cravalho, Queen Latifah, John Stamos And The Cast In Costume For ‘The Little Mermaid Live!’

Anticipation is building for Disney’s live TV musical presentation of “The Little Mermaid”, and on Wednesday ABC debuted photos of the production’s stars in full costume as their iconic characters.

“The Little Mermaid Live!” will offer viewers a thoroughly unique take on the beloved animated classic, with live musical performances interwoven with footage from the 1989 original.

“This never-before seen hybrid format will feature beautifully intricate sets and costumes with music from the original animated film and the Tony-winning Broadway stage version, originally composed by eight-time Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken,” explained ABC exec Jori Arancio during this summer’s Television Critics Association press tour.

The live musical stars Auli’i Cravalho (who voiced the title character in Disney’s animated Moana) as Ariel, with Graham Philips (“The Good Wife”) as Prince Eric.

In addition, Shaggy plays Ariel’s crustacean sidekick Sebastian and John Stamos portrays crab-loving Chef Louis, while Queen Latifah is villainous sea witch Ursula.
