Dark Horse has announced its latest Disney title isn’t going to focus on princesses or Mickey Mouse, but instead it is looking to the Queen of the Seven Seas in an Ursula mini-series arriving in June 2020.
Long before the events of Disney’s The Little Mermaid and Ariel’s quest to be a part of the human world, Ursula was one of seven sea witches, who each ruled one of the Seven Seas with impunity. But when one of Ursula’s sea sisters is found stripped of all her powers, Ursula must find the culprit…And among the merfolk, there is one who dares defy the reign of the sea witches.
“I’ve always been a fan of the Little Mermaid, both Andersen’s original story and the Disney movie. With DISNEY VILLAINS: URSULA AND THE SEVEN SEAS, I was able to add my own twist to those wonderful tales. Remember, for every witch you are told about, there’s a goddess you’ve forgotten. What a treat it is to give Disney’s most decadent villain her due,” said mini-series writer Sherri L. Smith.
Joining Smith on the series is artist Gabrielo Bagnoli.
Disney Villains: Ursula and the Seven Seas arrives on June 24, 2020.
