There’s no denying that Disney’s The Little Mermaid has been everybody’s favorite owing to its unique characters and setup: a mermaid, an underwater kingdom, a prince and his forever-angry chef, Louis.
Recently it was announced that there would be a live-action version for the movie and the fans have put up a special demand.
Twitter is flooded with fans tweeting that the angry, loud, cartoon chef be played by a real-life version of the chef, Gordon Ramsay.
This started with a tweet suggesting that Gordon Ramsay would be perfect for playing angry French chef of Prince Eric, Louis. The tweet received 200,000 likes and hundreds of comments.
Gordon Ramsay is notoriously known for his swearing, shouting and his extraordinary culinary skills.
While some of the tweets plead to cast Ramsay as Louis, one of them tweeted that they would die happy if this happens. And to make sure that the fans’ voices be heard, they have tagged both the celebrity chef and Disney.
No wonder he would be a perfect fit!
Referring to Ramsay’s famous burst calling a woman an idiot sandwich, someone tweeted that if that doesn’t happen and Sebastian isn’t wedged between two slices of bread then he will call the police.
BTW, fans also want to hear Little Mix member, Jesy Nelson, as the voice of Sebastian the Crab.
And it’s not just Louis and Sebastian, the fans are suggesting either Terry Crews or Idris Elba as Ariel’s dad, King Triton.
An artist, Boss Logic, went on to photoshop Idris Elba as King Triton and posted a picture along with a caption asking if Idris Elba would play King Triton.
Apparently, a petition was set up to cast Terry Crews as King Triton and Terry shared a picture of himself underwater, with the caption calling himself as Ariel’s father.
Disney hasn’t revealed the casting for other characters as of yet but has announced that actress Halle Bailey will be playing our beloved, Ariel.
