Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Disney 1. Tom Holland as Hercules Karwai Tang / WireImage, Disney This West End baby proved himself in Billy Elliott The Musical and, thanks to his work as Spider-Man, he's already got the whole clumsy hero thing down pat! 2. Ariana Grande as Megara Steve Granitz / WireImage, Disney She's got the high-pony AND the vocal chops. Plus, she's already blessed us with an amazing rendition of "I Won't Say I'm In Love". This feels like a no brainer. 3. Jon Hamm as Hades Toni Anne Barson / WireImage, Disney Jon Hamm has what it takes to pull off the slimy, hilarious skeeze that is Hades. Just look at his roles in Bridesmaids or Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. All hail the king of the underworld! 4. Marc Maron as Phil Amanda Edwards / Getty Images, Disney I'll be honest, Disney casting Marc Maron in one of their films seems highly unlikely, but Phil is a crotchety guy, er...goat-guy? And Marc is as crotchety as they come. 5. Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig as Pain and Panic Kevin Winter / Getty Images, Disney For an iconic animated duo, why not cast an iconic real life duo?! They've got the comedy chops, and are no strangers to wacky characters or voice acting. CAST THEM! 6. Vanessa Williams as Calliope John Lamparski / Getty Images, Disney Vanessa Williams commands every bit of your attention, which is just what we need in Calliope. Plus, she's got the Broadway credits that prove a musical is right where she belongs. 7. Janelle Monáe as Clio Gabriel Olsen / Getty Images, Disney If you had to have someone correct your pronunciation of the word "vase," wouldn't you want it to be Janelle Monáe? I thought so. 8. Jurnee Smollett as Melpomene Samir Hussein / Samir Hussein / WireImage, Disney Jurnee got to showcase her pipes as Black Canary in Birds of Prey proving she's got the soul and sadness to really bring home The Gospel Truth II. 9. Keke Palmer as Terpsichore Steve Granitz / WireImage, Disney Keke Palmer brings fun, spunk, and pipes to the table. What more could you ask for in Terpsichore?! Hire this woman! 10. Lizzo as Thalia Kevin Mazur / Getty Images, Disney While all the muses are fun, Thalia is undoubtedly "the fun one." Joyful, confidant, and a little horny; this is the role Lizzo was born to play. Don't get in the way of fate! 11. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as Zeus Axelle / FilmMagic, Disney Sure, Zeus is a musclebound daddy, but he's also kind of a doofus. When it comes to built, funny guys, there's no one better than Mr. Rock himself. 12. Sandra Oh as Hera Kevin Mazur / Getty Images, Disney Sandra Oh can do it all, so why can't being THE goddess of Olympus be next? She has the kind, ethereal quality we're looking for from Hercules' mom. Plus, she can bring the funny and the drama. 13. Alan Tudyk as Pegasus Frazer Harrison / Getty Images, Disney Alan Tudyk voices famous animal sidekicks, such as Pei Pei in Moana and Tuk Tuk in Raya and the Last Dragon. It's only right that he voices Peg Peg. 14. And finally, Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker as The Fates Vera Anderson / WireImage / Jim Spellman / Getty Images / Mike Coppola / Getty Images, Disney Just admit it. You want it too. You see the vision!
