The man who voiced Sebastian in “The Little Mermaid” got what he always wanted after his passing — a Broadway tribute.
Samuel E. Wright‘s daughter Dee tells TMZ … her father’s death has been very emotional for the family, but they’re also overjoyed that one of his wishes came true.
As we told you … Sam was a veteran theater actor who starred in several popular Broadway shows — including originating the part of Mufasa in “The Lion King.” Dee says he always joked with the family, “When I go, I want my name up there!” … referring to the theater marquees.
“Look at the stars. The great kings of the past look down on us from those stars.” Rest In Peace, Samuel E. Wright | 1946 – 2021 Original Broadway Cast, Mufasa. pic.twitter.com/MDuQAZJalZ
