The source further told the portal that Ariana Grande got her start in musicals so starring in a live-action remake of the movie was not out of the realm of possibility. She was also totally flattered that fans thought she should play Megara. However, the source added that it was way too soon and nothing had been decided yet. 

Another insider told the entertainment portal that Ariana was obsessed with Disney and with musicals so the role of Meg would be a great fit for her. The insider added that it was still way too early in the game to say one way or the other, as they were nowhere near the casting phase. Even Josh Gad, most known for voicing Olaf in Frozen, told an entertainment portal that Ariana Grande would be perfect as Meg.
