Disney is preparing a live adaptation of the ‘Little Mermaid’ story and is said to be in talks with fantastic Melissa McCarthy as they hope she will sign on to portray the sea witch Ursula.
The only trouble? Fans believe Titus is the man for the job.

Is there a good reason why Melissa McCarthy is playing Ursula and not Tituss Burgess? If you haven’t heard this man sing ‘Poor Unfortunate Souls’, you need to because there truly is no other person more perfect for the role https://t.co/IWorXf6Web

Why would you consider anyone other than Tituss for the role of Ursula in The Little Mermaid? Are all the magical musical things broken?

If he’s not Ursula, I don’t want it. https://t.co/9xwMoTlnyg

Fans hope their calls will encourage the movie’s makers to look Tituss’ way and give him the role many believe he is more than prepared to take on.
Y’all messed up. Melissa is great and we all love her but Tituss Burgess IS Ursula! He would have made an EPIC Ursula! Say it’s not to late! pic.twitter.com/AyNGcnR7iX

I gave not a single, solitary damn about this project until you put the thought of Tituss Burgess as Ursula in my head. Now it feels like I lost something I never had. pic.twitter.com/JoF27L7FCa
