ABC has announced that they will be doing a “State of the art” two hour live special called. “The Little Mermaid Live”. (READ MORE HERE)
I can’t begin to understand HOW they will do this, BUT it has been done on Broadway, which means they will have a good idea on how what sets to use, costumes, and everything else. I imagine it will be nothing short of spectacular.
Here are my TOP choices for characters!
Ariel: MUST be played by Amy Adams. Sure it would cost a lot more money because she’s a MOVIE STARRRR, but ABC, pony up! She can pull it off!
Prince Eric : There’s a handful of guys who could pull this character off. But I feel like this guy can both act (and really really sing) Harry Styles!
Ursula: The Main villainous evil sea witch. I would kill to see Bette Midler!
Triton: You know? That Kingly guy with a beard? Please please please Gerard Butler! The guy is jacked!
Finally rounding out my top 5 – FLOUNDER! You know? That cute fish?
Yeah him!! Gaten Matarazzo from ‘Stranger Things’ would be PERFECT! He can sing, AND he’s hilarious!
Word is that this will air in the fall some time. I for one, have high hopes!
