Last summer, celebs performed the film's hit songs during a concert at the Hollywood Bowl, which featured Sara Bareilles as Ariel, Rebel Wilson as Ursula, Darren Criss as Eric, Tituss Burgess as Sebastian, and John Stamos as Chef Louis.

Titled The Wonderful World of Disney: The Little Mermaid Live, the special will soon cast a bunch of stars in the roles, and who knows, they might even have some of the Hollywood Bowl performers reprise their roles.

The Wonderful World of Disney: The Little Mermaid Live will air Tuesday, October 3.

Actual Pirates Are Holding Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 For Ransom! See Disney's Badass Response!

| Filed under: Legal MattersDisneyOrange is the New BlackNetflix

no title

Piracy usually involves someone stealing a movie or TV show then uploading and sharing it so everyone can watch it for free. Some even viewed it (incorrectly!) as a victimless crime.

Well, that facade is being torn away

At least, that used to be the case. In a bold and probably self-defeating move, hackers have reached out to Disney to tell them that they have a movie digitally downloaded in its entirety — and they're demanding a hefty ransom not to release it to the public in 20-minute increments.

In a real Mel Gibson move (early badass Mel, not drunken belligerent Mel), CEO Bob Iger declared during an ABC town hall meeting on Monday that the studio is refusing to pay. Then he poured Bitcoin all over the desk and said, "Take a good look. This is as close as you're ever going to get to it."

OK, that last part didn't happen.

Instead the company is cooperating with authorities to try and help track down the culprits.

Ironically, the film — which Iger did not mention by name — is reportedly Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, which opens this Friday, May 19. And if it's released online this week, the box office could really suffer.

Weeks ago pirates made a similar threat to Netflix, who also refused to pay. The entire season of Orange is the New Black dropped on The Pirate Bay six weeks early.

We appreciate these companies standing up to these demands. We just hope the jerks get caught before they can make a trend of it!

Was Lauren Bushnell's Partying At Stagecoach The 'Final Straw' For Her Relationship With Bachelor Ben Higgins?

| Filed under: DisneyReality TVBreakupsThe Bachelor/ette

Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell

Oh, this is juicy!

As expected, more details have come to light surrounding Ben Higgins split from his fiancée, Lauren Bushnell!

While the two announced their breakup amicably in a pretty standard statement on Monday, it seems there's more to the story as ET reports The Bachelor pair "weren't seeing eye-to-eye on too many things and were arguing about everything lately."

And although the split "was coming for a little bit," it sounds like Lauren's partying at Stagecoach Music Festival at the end of April without her fiancé might've been the "final straw."

Damn! And Fox was already upset about having American Idol stolen from their dumpster! (What? They weren't using it anymore! Fine, from their attic then…)

But it looks like ABC isn't content to just take the iconic singing competition — they want the stars too!

miley cyrus malibu twitter reactions

Fans have A LOT to say about Miley Cyrus' new "folksy" sound.

As we previously reported, the former Disney darling dropped her first bit of music in almost two years as she released a breezy love song, titled Malibu. Along with the single, Miz Cyrus also shared a music video which features a softer version of the raunchy pop star we've come to know and love!

Nonetheless, the Wrecking Ball singer's devoted fans can't seem to get enough of the track. Although, we have a feeling the Smilers are obsessed with the song because it's clearly about the 24-year-old's rekindled romance with Liam Hemsworth. LOLz!

Be sure to ch-ch-check out the best fan reactions to Malibu (below).

Miley Cyrus is back, y'all!

It's been almost two years since the former Disney darling dropped her free album, Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz, and we've FINALLY gotten some new music from the pop star. However, for her new single Malibu, the blonde stunner drops the in your-face pop star persona for a breezy love song about back-on boyfriend Liam Hemsworth.

Awwwww. This jam is certainly a personal one as Malibu, along with the other tracks off Miz Cyrus' yet-to-be named upcoming album, was written by Miley herself. It's said producer-writer Oren Yoel plays all of the instruments on the track and expected album.

And fans are definitely seeing a different side to the Wrecking Ball singer as, her dad Billy Ray Cyrus said, this project is "Miley leaning into her roots."

Be sure to take a listen to Malibu for yourself by ch-ch-checking out the official music video (below)!

Going back to her roots.

As you've probably heard, American Idol is getting a reboot thanks to ABC.
