When the Disney Wish cruise ship launches this summer, it will host a new stage show inspired by “The Little Mermaid.” Disney Cruise Line has shared new details and concept art for the show.

Disney Cruise Line and Broadway talent worked together to develop this modern-day retelling of “The Little Mermaid.” It will feature innovative theatrical design, dazzling special effects, artistic choreography, and a reimagined script and score.

“Under the Sea” will be the show’s biggest production number, complete with incredible vocals, show-stopping choreography, and plenty of special effects. Here, the show’s cutting-edge puppetry will be on the greatest display, as countless sea creatures and fantastical characters like Sebastian and Flounder gather on stage to sing, dance, and celebrate.

Throughout the show, playful scenic designs and state-of-the-art video projections will transform the Walt Disney Theatre into a 360-degree undersea environment. During “Kiss the Girl,” Sebastian will lead a chorus of sea life in a refreshed rendition of the melody as the audience is visually transported into the scene. In a new twist exclusive to our show, even though Ariel doesn’t have a voice at this point in the story, her inner voice will play an important and meaningful role in the song.

The “Poor Unfortunate Souls” sequence will be a more soulful take on the classic tune, filled with all of Ursula’s confidence and glamour. During this number, her power will manifest in a jaw-dropping moment as she truly becomes larger than life.
