Fans are going wild over the news that ‘The Little Mermaid’ soundtrack will be performed by Rebel Wilson as Ursula and Sara Bareilles as Ariel and Darren Criss as Prince Eric!
Best.News.Ever! The Little Mermaid is coming to the Hollywood Bowl amphitheater in a big way on June 4, because it’s just been announced that Sara Bareilles, Rebel Wilson, and Darren Criss are set to perform the movie’s epic soundtrack in front of a full orchestra!
Sara will play Ariel, Rebel as evil Ursula, Darren as Prince Eric, Tituss Burgess as Sebastian, and none other than John Stamos will play Chef Louis. This will be the first time the entire soundtrack has been performed by a live orchestra since the movie came out 25 years ago. So it’s no wonder why fans are going wild! We seriously cannot wait to see this go down, it’s going to be absolutely incredible.

We told you not too long ago that 8-year-old Chloe Moretz was cast as Ariel in the upcoming live action movie! It turned out Sofia Coppola was going to direct it and it sounds like a definite departure from its 1989 Disney animated counterpart.
