After reading the real story of The Little Mermaid which was written by the Danish author Hans Christian Andersen, who coincidentally is also one of my favorite authors, I was inspired to write about the differences between it and what Disney had shaped their movie into. Also, there is a Japanese adaptation of the real story which you can find link if you're interested. Now onto the comparing between the two! Also, spoilers ahead.

In Hans Christian Andersen's tale, the mermaid is nameless. At the age of fifteen, a mermaid is deemed ready to see the human world for themselves. The Little Mermaid's...

The Little Mermaid (1989)

The animation renaissance starts here. Along with Who Framed Roger Rabbit the previous year, this brought a breath of fresh air swept through the corridors of Disney, blew away the dust and cobwebs and allowed new talent to flourish. Jeffrey Katzenberg greenlit the film while Oliver & Company and Roger Rabbit were still in production (and receiving priority treatment), but somehow here the fates aligned and everything came together.

It so nearly wasn't the case. There was no reason to think, going in, that this would change anything. Katzenberg warned his troops...

Here is fan fiction that I wrote myself . Enjoy.

Ariel was longing to fall in love with someone she would marry. Her father the king Triton didn’t want her to go to the human world as they were barbarians. One night as Ariel was singing about longing to be part of the human world with her best friend Flounder she heard a ship. ‘What if you suppose’ Ariel said to Flounder. Sebastian was here at the time and he didn’t want Ariel to go up there. Of course she did and she swam up to the top of the surface. As she went up to the surface she saw a huge shipwreck and she started to laugh. Sebastian...

I must find a way to be with him.
If I can’t have him, my world will always be grim.
No one I know will understand.
They all hate the land.
But it’s all I can ever think about.
I would love it up there, I have no doubt.
Especially to be in his arms,
Getting lost in all of his charms.
Only then will I be satisfied.
Knowing that from now on it’s with him I’ll reside.
I long to be in his arms and to dance!
And find myself in a lover’s trance.
I must find someone who will help me with my plea,
Until then I will be miserable under the sea.

The Little Mermaid

(An ocean. Birds are flying and porpoises are swimming happily. From the fog a ship appears crashing through the waves)

Sailors: I'll tell you a tale of the bottomless blue

And it's hey to the starboard, heave ho

Look out, lad, a mermaid be waitin' for you

In mysterious fathoms below.

Eric: Isn't this great? The salty sea air, the wind blowing in your face . . . a perfect day to be at sea!

Grimsby: (Leaning over side.) Oh yes . . . delightful . . . .

Sailor 1: A fine strong wind and a following sea. King Triton must be in a friendly-type mood.

Eric: King Triton?

The little Mermaid was released on November 17 1989 and is largely accredited with being the film that heralded the beginning of the Disney Renaissance. With the average production time of an animated Disney film being 6 years this film was developed in the height of the 80’s.

The assignment of designing the heroine Ariel was left to animator Glen Keane who would go on to animate other Disney characters such as the Beast, Aladdin and Tarzan. He wanted the heroine to be reminiscent of the traditional Disney Princesses while at the same time being relatable to the ‘modern...

Attina has an orange tail with a matching seashell bra and brown hair, and wears a crown-like tiara similar to her father's. She is described by her sisters as being bossy but has often displayed being the most responsible. According to Ariel’s Beginning, Attina is the eldest (and is likely the next-in-line to the Atlantican throne). This was determined by her unique crown, robust voice, as well as speculation that her name is a Jamaican pronunciation of her mother’s name, Athena. Although her name was most likey taken from Alan Menken's rock opera "Atina, Evil Queen of the Galaxy."...
