We’ve been hearing a lot about Disney’s upcoming live-action remake of ‘The Little Mermaid‘, mostly because middle America freaked out after learning Ariel would be played by a black actress named Halle Bailey.

And now those same people are probably freaking out again after ABC/Disney announced that another POC would be playing Ariel in their upcoming ‘Little Mermaid Live!’ event.

In this special tv performance, Auli’i Cravalho, will be playing Ariel. She’s best known for her voice work in Moana. In addition to Cravalho, we have learned that Queen Latifah will be playing Ursula.

The production was first announced in 2017 and then temporarily shelved. The project is from The Wonderful World of Disney and ABC and will feature live musical performances from the cast interwoven into a broadcast of the original feature film

This “never-before-seen hybrid format” will air on ABC on November 5, 2019.
