Kacey Musgraves Rumored to Be In Talks for Vanessa, the Human Form of Ursula, in 'The Little Mermaid' Movie

Rumors are swirling that Kacey Musgraves has been in talks to play a role in the upcoming live-action remake of Disney’s The Little Mermaid!

The news has not yet been confirmed by Disney or Kacey‘s reps, but a report claims that the Grammy winner is in talks to play Vanessa, the human form of the villain Ursula.

TheDisInsider reports that Kacey has had meetings with Disney about the project, though they say there’s a chance she could have passed on the role. Nothing has been confirmed at this point so it should be noted that this is NOT official news.

Halle Bailey will be playing Ariel and Melissa McCarthy is taking on the role of Ursula. Filming is expected to begin later this summer in London and Oscar winner Rob Marshall is directing.

Kacey previously worked with Disney on the soundtrack for Frozen 2. She performed a cover of the song “All Is Found.”

Last week, Kacey announced some very personal news about her marriage.
