Lady Gaga Wanted For Live-Action Little Mermaid
Lady Gaga is rumored to be wanted by Disney to join their planned live-action Little Mermaid movie. The House of Mouse has had great success with the live-action remakes of their most popular animated films, with The Lion King, Aladdin and Mulan head to the screens in the next two years. Now, Disney is looking to bring audiences back under the sea.
The studio has had a live-action Little Mermaid planned for some time now, with some progress being made. There is no word on when the movie will be made, but if this new casting rumor is too be believe, Lady Gaga is being considered for the villain role of Ursula. But, like with most rumors, this one comes shouldn’t be believed so easily. It is, after all, a rumor, so everything here should come with a grain of salt. What’s more, the rumor itself only claims that Disney has Lady Gaga on a wishlist for a role, it does not claim what that role is.
Right now, Gaga is receiving overwhelming praise for her performance in A Star is Born alongside Bradley Cooper. Her role as both actress and singer in the movie has blown the minds of critics and moviegoers alike. The idea of Lady Gaga joining the film comes on the heels Zendaya being rumored to have been offered the role of Ariel. This has yet to be confirmed, but the actress has expressed interest in the role.
A Little Mermaid live-action film being led by Lady Gaga and Zendaya would be a great start to the cast. If either of them or both do decide to go under the sea, it’s possible Disney could go after more big names for the roles of Eric, King Triton, and the voices of Flounder and Sebastian. Hopefully, these castings come true and some official updates on The Little Mermaid will come soon.
