I saw the trailer for the Little Mermaid and… the beginning was fine… the king merman was fine… Ursula seems like the one from the neighborhood XD and the effects under the sea with the fish “dancing” looks very fake xd I imagine they delete the scene from the fork would not make sense

In 2019, a petition was made on the Change.org page for the character of Úrsula to be played by Paquita la del Barrio. Unfortunately, the petition only got 78,009 signatures, plus the role has already been awarded to Melissa McCarthy.
We believe that “Paquita la del Barrio” Francisca Viveros Barrandas (Mexican regional singer) is perfect for the role of Úrsula for the live action of the Little Mermaid, we ask that she be considered for said role.
The Little Mermaid “The Little Mermaid” has been receiving strong criticism from users for considering that it is forced inclusion to change the race of the protagonist Ariel. It’s a trend that Disney has been implementing in many of the animated movie productions of our childhood.
