Poor Little Monsters :rip:

 

But she would be great, I can see her pulling the sarcastic and playful side or Ursula but I'm not sure about the villain part

She will be great, but I'm nervous who will play Ariel and Eric - please be good. And please stick fairly close to the animated version like Aladdin did.

Aladdin full cast was announced at D23 2017, I expect the same thing for TLM this year, which would give the movie a 2021 release date.

NO! It has to be a DRAG QUEEN, since Ursula was inspired in DIVINE. Ginger Minj would fit perfectly!

I thought that too :jonny:

I’d prefer an actor that could match Pat Carrol’s deep voice but Melissa isn’t bad. I’ve never heard her sing.

 

And Ursula wasn’t only inspired by Divine, she was also inspired by Joan Collins’ vampy character in Dynasty.

I cannot really imagine her doing this, but it can work. I wonder who will portray Ariel and Eric.

I always pictured her as a black woman, never  imagined Melissa in this role.

 

I was obsessed with Ariel as a child so I’m really worried about who’ll play her. I hope they realize Ariel isn’t a pushover type of princess. She needs to be pretty and rebelious!!! 

 

I think Daisy would be a good fit

Don't know where this comes from and why it's such a popular thought. All the inspirations for Ursula that I know of were white, Divine, Joan Collins, Pat Carrol, and tbh her purple hue is close to pale.

I'm not against a black Ursula, I think Queen Latifah would be a great choice and I loved her in Chicago. But I disagree with people saying she HAS to be black. :rip:
