This is amazing. John Stamos, Rebel Wilson, Darren Criss and more of the cast of ‘The Little Mermaid’ prepare for their highly-anticipated weekend of performances by singing ‘Under the Sea!’ Click to WATCH!
The gang’s all here! The Little Mermaid comes to the Hollywood Bowl for a live musical event starting on June 3, but fans got a glimpse of the concert after John Stamos posted a video of the cast singing “Under The Sea.” This video is too adorable for words!
John took a video of the cast, including Sara Bareilles, Darren Criss and Rebel Wilson, singing the classic song “Under the Sea” during rehearsals of the live concert event. The cast looked like they were having a blast getting ready for their big debut performance on June 3. Rebel was repping The Little Mermaid hard with an Ariel T-shirt. Love it.
The cast will be performing at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, Calif., from June 3 to June 5. The original film will be shown at the event, and the singers will tackle famous songs from the movie and Broadway show.
Sara will play Ariel, Darren will play Prince Eric, and Rebel will play Ursula. Tituss Burgess, Ernie Hudson and John will play Sebastian, King Triton and the Chef. Jodi Benson, who voiced Ariel in the 1989 Disney movie, will perform on June 5.
In order to make sure some of the actors had songs to sing, the show’s creative director added songs from the Broadway show. Like, Prince Eric never sings in the movie, but when you have Darren, you have to let him sing!
“We went back to the original movie, and found where in the movie [the song] would be, and we’re building the movie around that premise,” Richard Kraft told the Los Angeles Times.
