When Ariana Grande recently was singing ‘I Won’t Say (I’m In Love)’ from Hercules in the Disney Family Singalong, many saw her as a princess.
It wouldn’t be the first time we seen Disney classics turned into live-action movies. When Disney in February confirmed that a live-action Tangled was in the works, many wonder who will play Hercules, Hades and Megara.
For Hercules role actors like Tom Holland and Chris Hemsworth was among the favorites, and Benedict Cumberbatch or Tom Hiddleston was one to choose to play Hades.
But when it comes to Megara, there’s always been one name that has stood out for many fans: Ariana Grande.
Now, thanks to her Disney Family Singalong performance of Megara’s stunning song ‘I Won’t Say (I’m In Love)’, fans are petitioning and campaigning for Disney to cast her as the sassy Grecian icon.
Before her performance, Ariana took to Twitter and Instagram to post a couple of pictures of Meg and the comments soon came rolling in. One fan wrote: “Ariana was born to play Meg, that’s all I have to say,” with another commenting: “Disney. Cast Megariana.”

Fans are so keen to speak the casting into existence, a Change.org petition has now been set up, with almost 12,000 people signatures from people who agree she should be offered the role, should it pop up.
