Fans were here for Crews’ idea to be cast in the film, and said Disney will certainly get their money if this were to actually happen.
If you play Ariel’s dad, Disney will have my money. 💯%.

Well okay, but only if there's a scene where he beats up Ursula using nothing but his pecs

I don't like Disney live-action remakes, but I'll watch this one if this were to happen

Heh. I think that even the most skeptical fan could get on board for that.

Utter joy. Sheer and utter joy. I’d watch this over one million times. Yes.

While Crews is urging Disney to give him a chance, Variety reports actress Melissa McCarthy is “in early talks to play the sea witch Ursula.”
Nothing has been confirmed, but it’s only a matter of time before Disney announces the cast of the 1989 remake.
