This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
This is an AWESOME addition to the cast.
Once Upon A Time may be going through their Frozen storyline, but they're about to go Under the Sea.
So freakin' awesome!
The character was previously voiced by Community alum Yvette Nicole Brown in season three, however, it looks like Merrin is the lucky lady who gets to bring her to life!
So, the real question that comes up is…
How will Ursula be wrecking havoc on Storybrooke?!?! We can't WAIT to see!
