We are jumping for joy after hearing this news! Not only will #TheLittleMermaid be a live-action movie released later this year, but ABC and The Wonderful World Of Disney partnered to produce a live musical event including #QueenLatifah as Ursula.
ABC released a statement saying “This never-before-seen hybrid format will feature beautifully intricate sets and costumes, with music from the original animated film and the Tony Award winning Broadway stage version”. For this production, #Ariel will be played by Auli’i Cravalho, the voice of #Moana that many are familiar with.
Recently, we got news that #HalleBailey will star as Ariel in the movie and many folks were not happy about this decision. Now, with Queen Latifah on board, the magic is ENDLESS.
