Melissa McCarthy Reveals Surprising Love for Ursula in Disney’s ‘The Little Mermaid’ Remake

In a recent interview with Forbes, actress Melissa McCarthy discussed her upcoming role as Ursula in Disney’s live-action adaptation of “The Little Mermaid.” McCarthy explained that she was initially hesitant to take on the role, as she didn’t want to replicate the iconic performance of the late Pat Carroll, who voiced Ursula in the original animated film. However, as she delved deeper into the character, McCarthy began to develop a new appreciation for Ursula and her motivations.

McCarthy described Ursula as a complex character who has experienced a lot of pain and rejection in her life, which has led her to seek power and control over others. Despite her villainous actions, McCarthy sees Ursula as a character who is ultimately seeking redemption and validation.

McCarthy also discussed the challenges of playing a character who is primarily a CGI creation, noting that she had to rely heavily on her imagination and the direction of the film’s visual effects team to bring Ursula to life. However, she expressed excitement about the final product and the opportunity to introduce a new generation to the beloved story of “The Little Mermaid.”
