1) Among the most important themes in the Disney movie The Little Mermaid are those of questioning conventional thinking, and pursuing a dream. Not only is Ariel, the little mermaid, demonstrating original thought (something that many seem to think she is lacking), but also she is rebelling against her speoiesist father. When Ariel expresses her love for the human prince, King Trident is furious. When Ariel points out angrily that he does not understand her, or even know the man whom she loves, Trident retorts, “Know him ? I don’t need to know him ! He’s a human !” In a very real way Disney is encouraging children to question preconceived ideas that we may have against a certain group.
Disney also teaches children to pursue what they love. We see that Ariel’s love for Prince Eric is more important than all else. In turning to the Sea Witch, Ursula, for help, Ariel makes a mistake, but no true hero or heroine is ?awless. Ariel puts herself, her family, and all merfolk in danger, but we see that with the help of her prince, she is able to put everything right.
At the end -of the film, when Ursula has forced King Trident to sacri?ce his kingdom for his daughter’s soul, the Sea Witch rises out of the water, gigan?c and terrifying, wearing the kings crown and holding his magic trident. She laughs evilly and declares that she is the ruler of all mermen and women. “So much for true love 3' she screams Victoriously. Eric, however, succeeds in piloting the prow of his ship straight through her belly, vanquishing her. The moral here is that while we all make mistakes, what is truly important is how We right the wrongs we may do to others.
The author's main point in the passage is that
1) Ariel should not have been allowed to marry prince Eric2) Only Prince Eric truly understood Ariel
3) Ariel demonstrated original thought4) The Little mermaid teaches children to follow their hearts
