Stamos added that the event will be enjoyable for all ages.

"The movie is 30 years old, so I'm sure there's a lot of parents out there that grew up with 'Mermaid,' and now they can watch it with their kids. But instead of just watching the movie as is, this is just a special, extra moment that will just sort of burst out of the screen," Stamos said.

"You have the animated side of things carrying the plot forward, so everybody gets their fix of nostalgia. But then we're sprinkling on a little something new for all the big, fat musical numbers," Phillips said.
