Attention, attention! ABC just announced that a special called The Wonderful World of Disney: The Little Mermaid is coming and I am so freaking excited.
So, what does that mean exactly? Well, according to ABC's official announcement, it will be a "never-before-seen live action/animation hybrid," which sounds basically like my dreams IRL.
In a two-hour special event, ABC will take the iconic 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. 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.
