Fans Petition for Ariana Grande to Play Megara in Live-Action ‘Hercules’ After the ‘Disney Family Singalong’. Merely moments after sharing her rendition of “I Won’t Say I’m in Love” from Disney’s Hercules during the Disney Family Singalong on ABC, Ariana Grande Fans began a petition to get Grande the role of Megara in a live-action adaption of Hercules.
The petition on Change.org has nearly 15,000 signatures at the time of writing and looks to meet its goal by the end of the weekend. The real question is, will Disney listen to the fans?

If Disney ever decides to make a like action Hercules Ariana Grande should automatically be casted as Megara. Case closed.

We think Ariana did a fantastic job and can see why fans instantly backed the award winning artist for the role should Disney decide to release a live-action Hercules.
