Aug. 5 (UPI) -- Moana voice star Auli'i Cravalho is set to play the titular heroine in ABC's live staging of The Little Mermaid.
The show is to air under the The Wonderful World of Disney Presents programming banner on Nov. 5.
Queen Latifah is to play the evil sea witch Ursula and Shaggy will lend his voice to Sebastian, the know-it-all crab.
Additional cast announcements will be made at a later date, ABC said in a press release Monday.
This project is separate from Disney's planned live-action, big-screen remake of the 1989 animated movie.
The theatrical film will star Halle Bailey as Ariel, the courageous mermaid who falls in love with a human.
