The songs feature music from multiple Academy Award® winner Alan Menken (“Beauty and the Beast,” “Aladdin”) and lyrics by Howard Ashman, and new lyrics by three-time Tony Award® winner Lin-Manuel Miranda.

    Ursula’s glowing tentacles really adds to her sinister charm 🐙

    • Nguyễn Hoàng says:

      In real life, deep-sea creatures have glowing parts on their bodies to lure their prey and eat them, isn’t it interesting? Whoever came up with the idea to make Ursula glow is brilliant

    • Spring Hearted Tiger says:

      @Nguyễn Hoàng yeah, it’s very interesting 😃 fish in the midnight zone are as cool as they are very scary

    • Olivar Nogueira says:

      ​@Nguyễn Hoàng i think it’s actually there to help distinguish her movements. Because everything is so dark it would be hard to see the tentacles moving

    • The_Aggressive_Wolf says:

      @Nguyễn Hoàng Yeah, it is called bioluminescence.

    i love how melissa is proving everyone who doubted her wrong

  3. pecahalloween says:

    I think Melissa was the biggest surprise. She really transformed herself for Ursula. She’s unrecognizable.

      Beep bop… I’m the Philosophy Bot. Here, have a quote:

      “I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is over self”

  4. Mariah Zamora says:

    This is why viewers should really wait and see how an actor/actress portrays and plays their character before judging whether they’re good or bad for the part…and Melissa didn’t disappoint; she is phenomenal as Ursula.

  5. gissneric says:

    I now regret hating on Melissa for this role before. Im impressed already by this short clip.

  6. Ulandro Henfield says:

    I love the part where she says “pathetic” and I love the way she said “yes indeed”😍😍😍😍

    • LokiTheMythMaster says:

      Love the pathetic. Yes indeed I’m a bit iffy on.

    • Lamestream Media says:

      ​​@LokiTheMythMaster “Pathetic” – she knocked it out of the park (especially the 2nd syllable), “Yes” – 4 1/2 stars, “indeed” – downright embarrassing (might not watch)

  7. Brandon Osborne says:

    Her voice when she says “pathetic”!! Sounds amazing

  8. Shimbun Maru says:

    I was a little skeptic because I’m obsessed with Queen Latifah’s version but I have to admit that this looks amazing! The facial expression when she says “pathetic” is pure gold, also loved the glowing tentacles detail. Can’t wait for the movie!

  9. thorn’s wife says:

    Mhm that’s Ursula right there. This is so fantastic😍😍. Melissa is going to nail this!

  10. Kathy Coleman says:

    Melissa is totally nailing this. I love how they’ve taken the animated film and turned that into a live action performance that both honors its past, but is also brave enough to take chances and be its own thing.

    • George Floyd says:

    • ♡LolirockAngels♡ says:

    • George Floyd says:

      @♡LolirockAngels♡ If I’m on every video commenting that means you did to, which makes you no better then me 🤷🏾‍♂️

    • Jemand Jemand says:

    • Diablo Gato says:

      Honors its past by playing out the same plot scene by scene and changing characters’ races? Okay…
