Disney fans, rejoice! A slew of your favorite stars are banning together to bring The Little Mermaid to life! The Hollywood Bowl has just announced that Disney’s classic under the sea tale is set to be the latest film to screen at the venue alongside a live orchestra.
As part of the screening, fans who attend will get to watch the movie and enjoy the score performed live by a 71-piece orchestra and a 12-person choir. Additionally, all your favorite Little Mermaid tunes will be sung by some of your favorite singers.
Lending her vocals to Ariel herself will be “Brave” songbird, Sara Bareilles and playing the part of Prince Eric will be none other than Glee alum Darren Criss. Meanwhile, Pitch Perfect’s Rebel Wilson has been tapped to perform the sea witch Ursula’s iconic “Poor Unfortunate Souls.”
The star-studded list doesn’t end there. Also set to lend their vocals to the upcoming production are Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s Titus Burgess, who will play the role of Ariel’s faithful minder, Sebastian the crab. Meanwhile, everyone’s favorite Uncle Jesse, John Stamos, will bring the zany Chef Louis to life. We’re definitely looking forward to hearing Stamos’ rendition of the highly under-appreciated “Les Poissons” when the event takes place!
Joining the slew of A-listers will be none other than Alan Menken. The famed composer, who won two Academy Awards for his work on The Little Mermaid, is set to appear at the event where he will open the festivities by performing a medley of his timeless classic Disney songs.
According to the LA Times, early birds at the event will be invited to participate in an audience costume contest before the screening begins at 8 p.m.
The Little Mermaid event at the Hollywood Bowl is set for June 4 and tickets for the event are scheduled to go on sale starting Saturday April 9.
