Red Neighbor is reporting the following Little Mermaid casting bombshells, to add to Friday’s Melissa-McCarthy–as-Ursala madness:
Zendaya as Ursula, Room‘s Jacob Tremblay as Flounder, Awkwafina as the seagull Scuttle, either Harry Styles or Noah Centineo as Prince Eric, Gerard Bultler as Triton, John Legend as Sebastian, and Kerry Washington as Athena..
None of these choices are actually cast yet, so it’s all just theoretical at this point but… what do you think of THEM APPLES?
The animated movie loosely retold the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale of a mermaid named Ariel who yearns to be human after she falls in love with a prince. Ariel makes a deal with Ursula, who grants her wish but takes her voice.
The feature will showcase all the well-known songs and will also have new material. Original composer Alan Menken is teaming with Lin-Manuel Miranda, with Menken composing and co-writing new lyrics with Miranda.
