People Have a Lot of Opinions About Melissa McCarthy Playing Ursula in the New 'Little Mermaid'

By

Growing up, my favorite Disney movie was The Little Mermaid. I watched it constantly. Except I would always fast-forward through the parts featuring the movie's villain, the purple sea witch Ursula, because she was one of the most terrifying characters ever. 

Now, she might be played by Melissa McCarthy in the upcoming live-action Little Mermaid adaptation, and the internet has a lot of opinions about it. 

The deal isn't final yet; according to Variety, Melissa (Bridesmaids, SPY, Gilmore Girls) is in "early talks" to play the role, but that was enough for Twitter to go awf about their (other! better!) ideas for who should take on the role of Disney's most fabulous villain.
