- Ariel is the daughter of Triton, who is the son of Poseidon. Poseidon is the brother of Zeus, who is the father of Hercules. That would mean Ariel and Hercules are related--GASP! lol
- Ariel is the only princess to have a child. Her name is Melody--weird...Ariel had sex! And she was 16!! What was Disney thinking?! Yeah, yeah, different time period and whatnot, but still weird considering it released in 2000.
- Sebastian almost had a British accent--so glad it was Jamaican. I mean can you imagine how "Under the Sea" would sound with a British accent?!
- A deleted scene from The Little Mermaid revealed that in earlier concepts of the film, Ursula was meant to be Triton's sister and Ariel's aunt--would've been weird if it had! I mean...how would Ursula turn out half octopus with a bit of human and Triton was half fish? Was his mom an octopus? That would've created more questions for Disney nerds like me!
Another one of my all time favorite Disney movies is The Little Mermaid! Possibly because it was one I watched on VHS a lot, and yes, the old VHS tape with the "controversial" cover on it! LOL!
