The long wait for ABC’s The Little Mermaid Live! is almost over. With the all-star cast set to dive under the sea on Nov. 5, Sunday (Oct. 6) gave us the first glimpse of the gang in costume in a bubbly promo that previewed their costumes and looks for the live musical remake.
Moana star Auli’i Cravalho is, of course, radiant as Ariel, rocking the red hair with a purple flower and matching dress, while Queen Latfiah looks ravishingly terrifying as Ursula, with a towering white hairdo and fierce purple eyeshadow and matching lips. There’s also dancehall star Shaggy as nervous crab Sebastian, though he looks super chill in a read leather jacket, red shades and a red shirt, John Stamos in a chef’s hat and long mustache as Chef Louis and Graham Phillips as handsome Prince Eric.
You might recall that Harry Styles was in the running to play Eric, but recently revealed that he passed on the part in order to “put music out and focus on that for a while.”
Watch the trailer below.
