A First Look at ABC's The Little Mermaid Live Has Arrived, and It's Neat Indeed

ABC's upcoming live adaptation of The Little Mermaid has found its sea legs. Ahead of the televised event on Nov. 5, the network shared a first look at its cast all in character — and, yes, under the sea — in a nostalgia-inducing promo.

After famously voicing Moana, Auli'i Cravalho will be taking on her second Disney character as Ariel. She is joined by Queen Latifah as Ursula, Shaggy as Sebastian, John Stamos as Chef Louis, and Graham Phillips as Prince Eric. Phillips previously appeared on Riverdale as Nick St. Clair, and he is perhaps most known for his role as Zach Florrick on The Good Wife.

This will mark ABC's second-ever TV adaptation after Dirty Dancing in 2017 — however, that one was not live. The Little Mermaid Live! is meant to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the original animated movie. In addition, Disney is currently working on a live-action film adaptation starring Halle Bailey.
