Melissa McCarthy Shares Her Experience As Ursula in the Live-Action ‘The Little Mermaid‘. Actress Melissa McCarthy recently appeared on The Ellen Show and shared her experience so far as Ursula in Disney’s live-action remake of The Little Mermaid.

“I play Ursula, the Sea Witch. It is so fun! We’re just in rehearsals. It’s been an absolute blast. Stepping into the world of  Rob Marshall, It’s like a fever dream. I just went to London for a week, I was like, ‘I don’t get to go to dance camp for a week.’ All day he is like, ‘Do you want to slide down this 40-foot clam shell?’ I’m like, ‘YES! Of course I do! What are you, crazy?’ It’s been wildly creative.” McCarthy shared with Ellen.

You can watch Melissa’s full interview with Ellen DeGeneres on The Ellen Show below:

It’s great to see that rehearsals have begun! We can’t wait to see the new live-action The Little Mermaid.

“The Little Mermaid is about Princess Ariel, a mermaid and daughter to King of the Sea, King Triton. Ariel falls in love with a human prince after saving him from a shipwreck and dreams of spending a life with him out of the sea. After her father refuses to allow Ariel to be with the man she loves, she turns to the Sea Witch, Ursula, to help her meet Prince Eric so he can meet the woman with the beautiful voice that saved his life and hopefully fall in love with her too. Ursula deceives Ariel and tricks her into giving away her voice for a pair of human legs. The Sea Witch then uses the stolen voice to enchant Prince Eric and steal him away from Ariel and collect on their contract. To save Ariel, King Triton sacrifices himself and together Prince Eric and Ariel defeat the evil Sea Witch and save the day.”
