See Melissa McCarthy as Ursula Singing ‘Poor Unfortunate Souls’
We are mere days away from Disney’s live-action The Little Mermaid and with excitement reaching fever pitch, Disney is treating us to a special look at Melissa McCarthy as Ursula gives her rendition of signature song “Poor Unfortunate Souls.”
You can check out the official clip from Disney below:
We can’t wait to see more of McCarthy in the role of the nefarious sea witch Ursula. She definitely holds her own when signing the song that was originally performed by the late Pat Carroll. Alan Menken and Howard Ashman wrote the famous number.
McCarthy has been making the press rounds for the film. This included a performance on Good Morning America where she spoke about the incredible sense of responsibility she felt in taking on such an iconic character. “To walk in anything Pat Carroll has done, you’re already just like, let me just try to do it some justice,” she said.
Melissa McCarthy goes on to call her turn as Ursula the opportunity of a lifetime saying ,”It was so fun though,” she continued. “Because it is not my forte for sure, so I really nerdishly practiced really hard, and getting to sing with that orchestra was — I mean, I think it’s a once-in-a-lifetime thing. It was ridiculously fun.”
