Disney animated movies transcend generations, which is why we’re super excited when we hear about their next movie or live concert.
In 2016, The Little Mermaid was live at the Hollywood Bowl with an incredible cast. Pop singer Sara Bareilles was a brilliant choice to play Ariel. Rebel Wilson played the story’s villain, Ursula, and Glee star Darren Criss played the dashing prince.
Movie critics adored the film, and praised everyone involved for recreating such breathtaking scenery: “It [was] absolutely beautiful, especially when creating the shimmering underwater kingdom complete with bubbles, one of many special effects achieved through animation and projection. When combined with the lighting and costumes this show is a colorfully visual masterpiece,” Elizabeth Marie Himchak reviewed the performance for the San Diego Union-Tribune.
After the huge success of The Little Mermaid, another enchanting Disney world will unfold before our eyes: Beauty and the Beast. Director Richard Kraft will also be in charge of making this world a reality.
Here’s everything you need to know about the Beauty and the Beast in Concert at the Hollywood Bowl. With a cast like this one, it’s hard to imagine that this Disney concert will disappoint.
