Thanks to Disney’s The Little Mermaid Live, fans now know it’s not always better down where it’s wetter.
In honor of the beloved animated film’s 30th anniversary, Disney’s live musical event aired last night on ABC…to relatively mixed reviews: Some loved it, others were terrified by Flounder. The two-hour production featured Auli’I Cravalho as Ariel, Queen Latifah as Ursula, John Stamos as Chef Louis, Shaggy as Sebastian and Graham Phillips as Prince Eric. While the actors did their thing, the movie played behind them on a projector.
With heavy hitters like the IRL Uncle Jesse and the Girls Trip star rounding out the cast, one would assume the live musical event would be a smash. Well, some felt that it was. Take, for instance, these Twitter users.
One fan proclaimed Stamos’s Chef Louis as “instantly iconic.”
