That's Right – 'The Little Mermaid' Is Being Turned Into a Musical

’90s Disney kids, rejoice.

With so many Disney classics getting live-action reboots, it was only a matter of time before the musical adaptations rolled out. ABC’s announcement that it’s producing a two-hour special based on the The Little Mermaid comes as no surprise.

The Wonderful World of Disney: The Little Mermaid Live will reportedly blend our favorite scenes from the movie with live musical numbers by some well-known celebrity artists. While the artists have yet to be announced, we can only hope it will be on the same star-studded level as the musical rendition at the Hollywood Bowl last year, which included Rebel Wilson as Ursula and the hilarious Tituss Burgess (of Unbreakable fame) as Sebastian.

For those who are already as excited as we are, you have awhile to wait – The Wonderful World of Disney: The Little Mermaid Live doesn’t premiere until October 3.
