Here’s the gist: Three years ago, Elsa and Anna’s parents sailed off to a wedding (Flynn Ryder and Rapunzel’s wedding) and they died at sea. (Frozen came out almost exactly three years after Tangled did.) Their shipwreck is the one that Ariel explored in The Little Mermaid. It even makes sense geographically!
The king of Arrendelle is actually Rapunzel’s uncle and magic only affects blonde children in the family!
Baby Rapunzel and Elsa were both blonde. If Elsa’s dad was Rapunzel’s mom’s brother, then it would explain why he would want to hide Elsa’s powers. (His niece was kidnapped for her powers after all, by Mother Gothel!) Since both of these magical girls are blonde, it makes sense to say that magic has to do with a blonde trait. (Anna didn’t get any powers.)
Yes, Rapunzel was supposed to be a brunette as it turns out, and the only reason she’s blonde is because of the flower. Yes, all true. But! That doesn’t mean that the theory isn’t viable. Rapunzel’s genetics could have just been more susceptible to the magic of that flower. For all we know, the flower could have just awakened a power that Rapunzel might have had anyway if she had been born blonde. But because of the brown hair, the gene lay dormant. Anna, Elsa and Rapunzel look so much alike. Rapunzel and Eugene show up at Elsa’s coronation. We already have found a connection between the two films anyway.
And it makes sense that Elsa’s powers run in the family because her father seemed to know a lot more than he let on (knowing exactly what book to look into, knowing exactly how to get to the trolls, knowing the Troll King and vise versa.) I honestly think he may have had powers too. But to a weaker extent. He has dirty blonde hair, while Elsa’s has bleach blonde (and Rapunzel has honey blonde). I think her hair signifies how strong her powers are compared to her fathers. He may have powers himself, but much weaker than Elsa’s and that’s why he’s so dumbfounded on how to help her. At least, he doesn’t know how to help her completely because he doesn’t know how to deal with powers that strong. But, this is all just a theory and I can never completely prove anything. But, I don’t know..
Okay, based off Ursula, we can surmise that their might be other mermaids of her kind (her sister showing up in the sequel is the only proof of this though). But if there can be mermaids that are half octopus, why aren’t there any mermaids that are half some other kind of sea creature?
In all honesty, having multiple mermaid types would have actually have been pretty cool. They’d be like different races of mermaid. Though I wonder what would happen if a seal mermaid and a shark mermaid hooked up… That’d be interesting to see.
Now, I love “The Little Mermaid”, but some diversity among the mermaids would have been nice.
Maybe since Disney’s on it’s remake binge, maybe if they remake “The Little Mermaid”, they should take this idea and add some new types of mermaids.
In Disney’s film “The Little Mermaid“, Ariel longs to be on land, and when she sees Prince Eric. His ship hits a storm and he gets knocked out and would have drowned without her help. So she saves him and sings him awake. He wakes, kind of sees her and decides he has to find the girl who saved him and marry her. Now, Ariel, not knowing anything about him really, she decided that she has to be with him. So, she meets Ursula, the sea witch, and asks Ursula to help her. Ursula offers her a deal: “I give you legs, and you get three days to get dear old princey to fall in love with you and get him to kiss you. If you don’t get him to before the suns sets on the third day, you turn back into a mermaid and I own you. All I want is your voice as payment.”
Now at that point, I’d be thinking, “Uh, hell no. I’ll find some other way. I’m not giving a piece of me for some guy I barely know and there’s no guarantee that it’ll work.” But Ariel doesn’t think like me obviously. Because she takes the deal, get’s her legs, and gives up her voice. No more talking, singing. Zip. She get’s on land, and by chance, Eric finds her, thanks to his dog Max. But since she can’t talk and he knows that the girl who saved him was singing, he figures it can’t be her. So he just decides to help her anyway. and for three days, Scuttle and Sebastian are trying to help her and to no avail, and during the second night, Ursula sees that Ariel is getting close so she disguises herself as a human named Vanessa, hypnotizes Eric, and gets him to marry her. Ariel’s heart broken. But Scuttle finds out it’s Ursula in disguise and tells Ariel, Sebastian and Flounder. Scuttle and other sea creatures stall the wedding and Ariel get’s there just in time for Ursula’s necklace, containing Ariel’s voice to break and Ariel gets her voice back and Eric’s hypnotism is broken and he realizes she’s “the one” and goes to kiss but the sun sets before he can and she goes mermaid. Long story short, Ariel and Eric kill Ursula, Triton, Ariel’s dad, realizes she does love Eric, and turns her into a human. Ariel gets what she wanted.
Now I get a couple things from this. One: change everything for a guy you want but hardly know. That’s a terrible message to send to girls. Ariel gave up everything for Eric when there was no guarantee that she’d get the prince.
Second: Disobey your parents. Don’t worry, you’ll get what you want in the end. Triton forbade her to go to the surface and she disobeyed him and when he finds out,instead of punishing her like a parent should, he gives her what she wanted. Talk about spoiling your kids.
Thirdly: How do we know that they had true love? I mean, he didn’t get to kiss her before the sun set. I mean, love, sure. But true love? I don’t know. And you have to think there’d be a lot of issues in that relationship, seeing as she grew up in the sea and is probably vegetarian and won’t eat seafood. And Eric’s kingdom obviously must rely mostly on seafood. Meaning Eric probably grew up on a steady diet of Ariel’s friends. Hhmmm. Probably not the best match in my opinion.
