Emma Stone says The Little Mermaid’s Ursula should get her own origin movie

Emma Stone says The Little Mermaid’s Ursula should get her own origin movie: “She’s an octopus and the world you would get to live in, Ursula’s parents and what happened there. You’ve never really seen a non-human Disney villain be explored in that way.”

The genesis tale of the renowned villain Cruella de Vil is told in Disney’s new film “Cruella.” Emma Stone plays the titular heroine, while Emma Thompson portrays her arch-enemy, fashion designer Baroness von Hellman.

The cast of the film was asked by Variety’s senior culture and events editor Marc Malkin which other Disney villains they think should get a big-screen origin tale. Ursula, who will be played by Melissa McCarthy in the upcoming live-action remake of “The Little Mermaid,” would be intriguing to see in her own picture, according to Stone.

Emma Stone commented, “She’s an octopus and the world you’d get to live in, like Ursula’s parents and what occurred there.” “It’s the first time you’ve seen a non-human Disney villain developed in that way.”

Ursula’s anguish, Thompson said, maybe the result of having to live through an octopus’ worst nightmare on a regular basis. Thompson explained, “The parents keep gifting her a blouse with only four arms.” “They’ve been messing with her from a young age, so she’s always attempting to put two arms into each hole. Isn’t that something that would truly screw you up?”

Maya, played by Kirby Howell-Baptiste, a photographer and gossip columnist, agrees that Ursula needs her own film.
Howell-Baptiste stated, “I have to know how Ursula came to be.” “Like, why is she so obnoxious?” But I’m also aware that she’s been misunderstood.”

Scar from “The Lion King” is her second option for a new Disney villain origin story. In 2019, Chiwetel Ejiofor provided the voice of the villain in Jon Favreau’s photorealistic version of “The Lion King.” A sequel will be directed by Barry Jenkins of “Moonlight,” but given the financial success of Favreau’s picture, there’s no reason why Disney couldn’t make a prequel about Scar and Mufasa’s background.
