Fans have been begging for Ariana Grande to land the role of Megara in the live-action adaptation of Hercules and it turns out that her brother, Frankie, also thinks she should get it! During a new interview with HollywoodLife, he gushed over Ari as Megara, arguing that ‘it’s the perfect role for her!’
In the meantime, fans have been petitioning for the singer to portray the ponytail-wearing character in the upcoming Disney adaptation.
‘I think Meg is such a great character for her. Honestly, my sister’s one of the strongest female entrepreneurs and business women at top of her game,’ her brother dished, adding that Ariana is a total ‘boss lady’ and so is Megara!
He went on to dish to the news outlet that ‘Meg is, like, the sassiest of the [Disney] princess, you know? So if my sister’s gonna be a Disney princess, then she is going to be sassy. She is going to be strong; she is going to be loud; she is going to be outspoken. So I think it is the perfect role for her. And, absolutely, she should absolutely play it.’
That was really convincing! Sure enough, many other people think the same way and would love to see Ariana take on the iconic role from the 1997 animated movie.
Ariana being associated with the character started when she sang a song from the soundtrack, I Won’t Say I’m In Love, while on ABC’s Disney Family Singalong special last month.
The star not only sang Meg’s part in the song but also the ones of the muses, harmonizing perfectly with her own voice in the edited piece.
Her amazing version of the beloved song completely dazzled everyone and now, they can’t help but think she would be the perfect fit for the role.
Soon after, an online Change.org petition to give her the role was started!
