New Concept Art Revealed for The Little Mermaid Musical Adventure


This fall, Disney’s Hollywood Studios is set to enchant audiences with a fresh theatrical spectacle, “The Little Mermaid – A Musical Adventure.” As we prepare to submerge into Ariel’s world, the Disney Live Entertainment creative team grants us a sneak peek into the making of this all-new reimagining of the Walt Disney Animation Studios classic.

In a bold move, the team has overhauled every aspect of the show, from innovative physical sets and a dynamic cast of puppets to mesmerizing visuals and live performers. The aim? To craft an immersive experience that transcends the boundaries between the digital and the tangible.


The integration of practical designs with advanced technology is pivotal to the production. The beloved blacklight puppets make a return, paired innovatively with cutting-edge tools such as motion capture technology.


James Silson, Show Director, elaborates on this blend of old and new techniques. “We use motion capture technology, similar to what’s seen in blockbuster films, where a live performer in a sensor-covered suit helps us animate our digital characters,” says James.


This technology allows for the creation of vivid, lifelike animations that bring characters like King Triton, Ursula, and Ariel’s sisters to life on stage.
