With news breaking about Zendaya possibly playing Ariel we were bound to know who could play the evil witch of sea and rumor has it, that it could be Lady Gaga!
Numerous live action adaptations of classic Disney animated films such as The Lion King, Aladdin and Mulan are on the way in the next two years. With big name actors such as Donald Gloover and performers such as Beyonce tied to The Lion King, it comes as no surprise that The Little Mermaid would be scoring some more big names!

But it seems like the Walt Disney Company can’t wait to start preparing the live action version of The Little Mermaid. The studio already has director Rob Marshall known for Into the Woods and 2002’s Chicago, to direct the film. But there still is no definitive answer on whether the film will be on the works anytime soon.
The Disinsider shared the rumor that Gaga is up for the role as Ursula, however no one from the Disney corporation has confirmed this. Gaga has garnered huge praise recently for her role in A Star Is Born. Her amazing vocals and acclaimed acting skills might be exactly what Disney is looking for as they continue to adapt live-action versions of their animated classics.
There is still time to assemble the cast, and we’re excited to see who’ll play Eric, King Triton, Flounder and Sebastian!
