ABC is describing this live event like nothing anyone has ever seen before:

This special tribute to the original animated classic and its timeless music will take viewers on a magical adventure under the sea as live musical performances by a star-studded cast will be interwoven into the broadcast of the original feature film. 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, originally composed by eight-time Oscar®-winning composer, Alan Menken. Howard Ashman’s iconic film lyrics will also be showcased, while lyricist for the Broadway adaptation, Glenn Slater, will contribute to the star-studded spectacular.

Personally, I am not sure what to make of the upcoming The Little Mermaid Live! but I will say I am excited to see what’s to come — whether it is a cheesy broadway stage version or a phenomenal live musical event.

The Little Mermaid Live! airs on November 5th on ABC.
