Il presidente della ABC Karey Burke riferisce che La Sirenetta se avrà successo sarà il primo di una serie di musical basati sui musical Disney ad arrivare in tv.

Inoltre sempre Burke riferisce che non ci sarà concorrenza con il film live-action che ha per protagonista Halle Bailey perchè il musical televisivo sarà completamente differente dal film.

Da Deadline:

‘The Little Mermaid’ Live Event A Go On ABC With Auli’i Cravalho As Ariel, Queen Latifah & Shaggy Co-Starring

ABC’s The Little Mermaid live special is back on, and it has set most of its core cast with Moana star Auli’i Cravalho as Ariel, Queen Latifah as Ursula and Shaggy as Sebastian. The Wonderful World of Disney Presents The Little Mermaid Live!, featuring a mix of live action, animation and puppetry, will air Nov. 5 to mark the classic Disney animated feature’s 30th anniversary.

ABC originally announced in May 2017 that it would stage a live production of the beloved underwater tale under the long-dormant Wonderful World of Disney banner, which was slated for Oct. 3, 2017. In August of that year, the network announced that the live event had been put on hold.

Since joining ABC last December as President of Entertainment, Karey Burke has expressed strong support for live specials. Her commitment was likely reaffirmed in May after the success of Jimmy Kimmel’s live staging of two classic Norman Lear sitcoms on the network, which spawned two more installments.

Burke today said that if The Little Mermaid is a success, it too can lead to do more live musicals based on Disney film titles on ABC. “If it works, I expect we will do more of them and we will work closely with the feature department about timing,” she said.

Billed as a tribute to the original animated classic and its music, The Wonderful World of Disney Presents The Little Mermaid Live! will feature live musical performances by its star-studded cast interwoven into the broadcast of the original feature film. The hybrid format will combine intricate sets and costumes created for the special with music from the original animated film and the Tony Award-winning Broadway stage version, composed by eight-time Oscar-winner Alan Menken. Howard Ashman’s film lyrics will also be showcased, with Glenn Slater, lyricist for the Broadway adaptation, as a contributor.

Cravalho, who will play the title role of Ariel, already is in the extended Disney Princesses family having voiced Moana in the hit animated movie. Queen Latifah will play the villainous sea witch Ursula; while Jamaican reggae musician Shaggy will voice the lovable red crab Sebastian and is expected to perform the film’s signature song, the Oscar-winning Under the Sea.

The news of The Wonderful World of Disney Presents The Little Mermaid Live! going forward comes as Disney is gearing up for production of a live-action feature adaptation of The Little Mermaid for director Rob Marshall, Hamilton‘s Lin-Manuel Miranda and Menken. Halle Bailey has been set as Ariel in the movie, Awkwafina as Ariel’s seagull friend Scuttle, and Jacob Tremblay as Ariel’s friendly fish pal Flounder, while Melissa McCarthy has been rumored for the role of UIrsula and Harry Styles for Prince Eric.

Burke is not worried about ABC’s live Little Mermaid special and the upcoming movie cannibalizing each other. “Ours is distinctly different from the feature film,” she said.

The Wonderful World of Disney presents The Little Mermaid Live! is produced by Done+Dusted. Executive producers include Done+Dusted’s Hamish Hamilton, who will also direct, Katy Mullan, David Jammy, Raj Kapoor and Ian Stewart. Also executive producing is Richard Kraft, producer and director of the Hollywood Bowl productions of The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast.

Following her breakout role in Moana, Cravalho performed the film’s anthem, How Far I’ll Go, at the Oscars and starred in the NBC musical drama series Rise. It was just announced that she is the lead of the Brett Haley Netflix film Sorta Like a Rock Star. She is repped by Framework Entertainment, WME and Schreck Rose Dapello.

Articolo tradotto in italiano da TvBadtaste:

La Sirenetta: Auli’i Cravalho star del musical trasmesso live da ABC!

La Sirenetta diventerà un musical che verrà trasmesso in diretta su ABC e la protagonista sarà la giovane attrice Auli’i Cravalho nel ruolo di Ariel. Nel cast del progetto anche Queen Latifah che sarà Ursula e Shaggy nella parte di Sebastian.
Il network aveva annunciato nel mese di maggio 2017 l’intenzione di trasmettere lo spettacolo ispirato alla principessa Ariel, ma si era poi deciso di rimandare l’evento televisivo.

La versione della storia de La Sirenetta con star Auli’i Carvalho ideata per ABC potrà contare su un mix di animazione, live action e marionette e andrà in onda sugli schermi americani il 5 novembre, in occasione del trentesimo anniversario del debutto del lungometraggio animato.

The Wonderful World of Disney Presents The Little Mermaid Live! avrà, come di consueto, le interpretazioni dal vivo del suo cast, intrecciate con scene del film cult. Tra i brani che verranno eseguite anche alcuni tratti dalla versione di Broadway e composti da Alan Menken. Per l’occasione verranno poi create elaborate scenografie e incredibili costumi.
Alla regia ci sarà Hamish Hamilton e gli spettatori potranno nuovamente assistere alla storia della giovane principessa Ariel che incontra per caso l’affascinante Eric e si innamora di lui, decidendo di seguirlo sulla terraferma. Per farlo ha però bisogno delle gambe, situazione che la porta a contattare la malvagia Ursula, la strega che la priverà della sua voce e cercherà di ingannare Eric per poter prendere il controllo del regno marino, ricattando re Tritone, pronto a tutto pur di salvare l’amata figlia ribelle. Il classico d’animazione prodotto dalla Disney avrà prossimamente una versione live-action al centro di alcune polemiche a causa della scelta della produzione di affidare il ruolo della protagonista all’attrice Hallee Bailey, modificando così in modo significativo l’aspetto di Ariel rispetto alla versione originale.

Che ne pensate? Auli’i Cravalho vi sembra la scelta giusta per La Sirenetta?

Da BestMovie:

La Sirenetta, Auli’i Cravalho sarà Ariel nello spettacolo live ABC
Nella versione live della ABC de La Sirenetta Auli’i Cravalho, già voce della principessa Vaiana, interpreterà live la sirena Ariel

No, la Disney non ha cambiato idea sul casting del film live action. Ma prima di vedere al cinema il film di Rob Marshall i fortunati spettatori americani potranno anche assistere a una versione concerto de La Sirenetta, per festeggiare i 30 anni dall’uscita del classico Disney. In questa edizione prodotta dal canale televisivo ABC (di proprietà della Disney) de La Sirenetta Auli’i Cravalho sarà la fortunata interprete di Ariel, l’amatissima principessa dalla splendida voce.

La Sirenetta Auli’i Cravalho sarà Ariel
Lo spettacolo si intitolerà “The Wonderful World of Disney Presents The Little Mermaid Live!” e sarà un misto tra una versione concerto e un musical, con interpreti dal vivo, marionette per interpretare gli animali del film come il granchio Sebastian, il pesciolino Flounder e il gabbiano Scuttle e proiezioni del classico d’animazione originale. Ci saranno inoltre “set e costumi molto elaborati” ed è confermato che oltre alle canzoni del film saranno aggiunti anche alcuni brani provenienti dal musical di Broadway, scritti da Alan Menken e Glenn Slater.

A vestire i panni di Ariel sarà Auli’i Cravalho, attrice e cantante hawaiiana che tutti abbiamo imparato a conoscere come la voce di Vaiana nel cartoon Disney Oceania. Dopo essere stata scoperta tra tante aspiranti principesse Disney, Auli’i si è ora trasferita a Los Angeles dove ha intrapreso la carriera di attrice recitando nella serie Rise.

Nel cast ci saranno anche Queen Latifah nel ruolo della strega del mare Ursula e Shaggy nei panni di Sebastian.

Il film live action
Nel frattempo continua la pre-produzione del film live action de La Sirenetta, le cui riprese inizieranno nei primi mesi del 2020 in Sudafrica e a Puerto Rico. Il film sarà diretto da Rob Marshall (Il ritorno di Mary Poppins) mentre la colonna sonora sarà di Alan Menken (compositore del film originale) e di Lin-Manuel Miranda (Oceania), i quali sono già al lavoro sui brani inediti.

Il casting del film ha sollevato molto scalpore online quando la Disney ha deciso di andare in una direzione completamente opposta rispetto alla ricerca della somiglianza assoluta come accaduto per La Bella e la Bestia o Aladdin, scegliendo infatti per il ruolo di Ariel la diciannovenne cantante afroamericana Halle Bailey del duo Chloe X Halle. Accanto a lei come principe Eric dovrebbe esserci Harry Styles, ex membro della band One Direction che ha fatto il suo debutto come attore in Dunkirk di Christopher Nolan. Infine, Akwafina e Jacob Tremblay doppieranno rispettivamente Scuttle e Flounder, mentre Melissa McCarthy e Javier Bardem sono in trattative per i ruoli di Ursula e Tritone.

La data d’uscita del film non è stata ancora ufficializzata, ma dovrebbe essere nel 2021.

Troppo bella come iniziativa, sopratutto se incorporerà anche animazione e marionette! Certo, quante nuove Sirenette all'orizzonte, chissà che scelte stilistiche differenti faranno..

Sì è un'ottima notizia e un bellissimo modo per celebrare questo grande Classico.

Qui maggiori dettagli sul nuovo film tv che incorporerà il Classico e sarà un mix tra il Classico, la parte live-action e la parte con pupazzi e marionette. Tra l'altro anche Eric e Re Tritone avranno delle canzoni prese dal musical di Broadway.

Qui maggiori dettagli sul film tv dal sito Geektyrant:

New Details Regarding ABC's THE LITTLE MERMAID LIVE Which Will Incorporate The Animated Film
Event TV The Wonderful World of Disney: The Little Mermaid LiveThe Little MermaidHamish HamiltonABC An Hour Agoby Tommy Williams

We recently learned that ABC was reviving The Wonderful World of Disney Presents: The Little Mermaid Live and now we have some additional details thanks to director and executive producer Hamish Hamilton.

According to Hamilton, The Little Mermaid Live will feature a broadcast of the animated film, but when it comes time for a musical number, we’ll cut over to the theater with the live cast performing the songs.

“We’re celebrating this incredible animated feature, and we’re gonna do it on the Disney lot. We’re going to do it live to air in front of a live audience in a room that we’ve created.”
In addition, there will be key moments such as Ariel on the rock that are recreated with the new actors.

“So how we are actually getting between the feature and our world, so just imagine that that’s a live fish and a live sailor on our stage. We are going to recreate Ariel’s cave around her in the room and reveal it in a clever and wonderful way.

So there will be visual signatures all the way through that will reinforce the original feature. We may or may not have beautiful jellyfish hanging from the ceiling. We may or may not have beautiful schools of fish running through the scene [via] puppeteers.”

Also, there will be some additions made to the musical score and a couple of the Broadway songs will be used as well. I just hope that Scuttle’s song “Positoovity” is not included, but it probably will be.

“There are two or three songs from the Broadway musical. We are not creating any new songs or any new characters or any new environments. We are celebrating the animated feature, but we are also celebrating the great world of The Little Mermaid.”
The costumes for the live performers were not revealed, but it sounds like they will not be very extravagant.

“I would rather not give that away. What I would say is that we’re not going to take too much of a departure from the original. We’re not people aren’t going to be out there in space costumes. If you interpret that as you will.”
If you’re wanting to see the show live, chances are you’ll have to be living on the east coast as it sounds like the show will only be done live once.

“Hopefully, we are only going to do it once. We’ll do it once, and I think there are 10, maybe 11 live musical moments or numbers within. It’s still fluctuating a little bit, but I think it’s 10 or 11.”

Finally, Hamilton has also said that the live performers will not be overdubbing over the animated film when that is being shown.

“So the animated feature, when it is the animated feature section, will play in its entirety. We are not asking these guys to re-voice the original feature, no.

What I would say is the entire movie is being scored again so there’s a continuity of musical flow.”
What do you think of these plans for The Little Mermaid Live? The performance is set to air on November 5.

Novità:

Il musical tv andrà in onda non solo sulla rete ABC ma anche su Disney +.


Da Variety:

ABC Chief: ‘Little Mermaid’ Live Musical Will Be Disney Plus Launchpad

ABC is timing its first-ever live-musical event, “The Little Mermaid,” to air just a week before the debut of Disney Plus in order to drum up attention for the hotly anticipated streaming platform.

“We wanted to launch it in November, in time to coincide with the launch of Disney Plus,” ABC network president Karey Burke told Variety. “It felt like a great promotional platform to speak to that. And I didn’t want to do a lot of musicals for the sake of doing one. What felt right was to do something that was a classic Disney title. To have the support of the Wonderful World of Disney behind this, just felt like all the stars have now aligned for us to try our first one with this particular piece.”

The live, televised “Little Mermaid,” which will combine parts of the original animated film with live performances from “Moana” star Auli’i Cravalho and others, has been scheduled to air on Nov. 5. Disney Plus becomes available to consumers on Nov. 12. According to the ABC chief, the idea of a “Little Mermaid” live-TV musical had been sitting on the back burner for a while.

“I got [to ABC] and had a strategy to more live events, and Rob Mills — who oversees live and unscripted — came to me and said, ‘Well there’s this,’ and I’d actually heard about it while I was at Freeform,” said Burke, who was previously head of original programming at the Disney-owned cable channel. The decision to revive the project came together around the 30th anniversary of the original animated Disney film, after which it was then fast-tracked.

The event will take place in a “dive-in theater” on the Disney lot. Early renderings of the stage show a long, winding set-piece that hundreds of viewers can approach, producer Hamish Hamilton showed Television Critics Assn. tour attendees on Monday. And there’s room for more such events, if “The Little Mermaid” plays to an enthusiastic audience.

“Should this be successful, which I’m pretty hopeful it will be, I think we’ll look to do it again with the right property,” said Burke.

It’s unsurprising that Disney would sync up its properties to boost awareness of its upcoming pay-TV subscription service that will challenge Netflix and other existing streamers on the market, and that Morgan Stanley analysts expect to attract 13 million subscribers by the end of 2020, and more than 130 million subscribers internationally by 2024. While Disney-controlled Hulu is currently the off-network home for previously aired episodes of ABC shows, there is room for adjusting where those secondary homes for series may be. As of now, such streaming-rights decisions are still in early talks.

“I expect shows that we have that are made decidedly more family friendly or are more in the Disney brand — Disney Plus then becomes a potential platform downstream,” said Burke. “Right now there’s no plans for the current arrangement with Hulu to change.”

Separately, when asked about the now-dropped charges against “The Bachelor” creator Mike Fleiss and whether there was value in continuing to work with a creator who has had a history of generating controversial headlines, Burke said that to best of her knowledge, there haven’t been any known incidents related to Fleiss on the set of any of “The Bachelor” or its sister shows.


“It’s my responsibility to make sure the show is safe and comfortable, a respectable work environment for all involved, and to the best of my knowledge, that has not been challenged,” she said.

Additionally, Burke expects the investigation into Afton Williamson’s claims of discrimination and assault on the set of “The Rookie” to wrap up in a few weeks.
