The Little Mermaid a well-known tale whom has been known to have a happy ending, being one of children’s favorite tale. But, does this tale have a happy ending? How does The Little Mermaid truly feel? This story can disappoint once read. The real story behind this fantasy tale is much different than what one is known about.
Yet, despite the fact that the more modern versions of the same fairytales tend to work on portraying a more feminist side of the story, the beautiful girl always gets the Prince (or finds any form of love), falls in love, and becomes rich. If not, then misery envelopes the protagonist. Feminist critics try to shed a light on the reality of these stories and how the moral lesson is always the same. Even when it comes to real-life based fairy tales, like Pocahontas, where a young twelve-year-old Native American tribe princess is kidnapped from her family and forced to marry, the only “feminist” version that we hear of today is a Native American young woman who falls in love with a European man who is forcefully taken away from her. Despite the fact that these women had to suffer great ordeals during those times, fairytales have decided to convert this dreadful story into a story of love.
The film begins with a female, who longs for more than the life that she is living. There is then some sort of conflict that leads to the entrance of the male figure into her life and they begin to create a relationship. This relationship is in some way threatened by some external force, in which, the female needs the male to save her from. At the end of the movie, the female and male live happily ever after, after resolving the conflict (Ayers, 2003). This repetitive plot line is in the early Disney Princess movies, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, and Cinderella and in more recent releases like Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, and Tangled.

His love seems to be the strongest (he is even able to break free of the chains which held him in the bell tower to rescue Esmeralda from being execute). However, he wants make Esmeralda happy that he stepped back when he notice that Esmeralda chose Phoebus as her lover. Despite his appearance, she wasn 't afraid of going with him to the cathedra to watch Quasimodo world (his bells, miniature figurines and toys, a scale wooden model of Paris which he did by his own - it also shows his willingness to be a part of
In “Princess Paradox”, Poniewozik distinguishes that there is a different kind of “Cinderella” in today’s world compared to pre 21st century Cinderella. Poniewozik points out that the new characteristics of today’s Cinderella are being: self-determined, independent, not wanting a Prince Charming, and at the same time to be the one that saves Prince Charming. These characteristics are much more different compared to pre 21st century where Cinderella finds true love with a Prince Charming, and is completely dependent on him. The reason why Poniewozik thinks that this new trend of Cinderella isn’t bad for young girls is because those little girls who fantasize about being a princess one day see these new traits and try to imitate them. They see that these new princesses aren’t dependent on anyone, and have also learned lessons of feminism.
Can Every Girl Be a Princess? : Disney’s Biased Color Symbolism in Their Princess Movies If we believe Cinderella than “[e]very girl can be a princess” (Grady and Panzer). Actually, we have nothing more to do than “close [our] eyes and see” and then with a tip of the magic wand, we will be gone from “just [us] to royalty” (Grady and Panzer). But is it really this easy?

First, the plot is changed. In Hans Christian Anderson 's tale of The Little Mermaid, the plot revolves around religious notions of the poor gaining entry to heaven through love and suffering which a woman sacrificing her voice and home to live happily ever after with her prince replaced. Second, female characters are left out. Again in Anderson 's tale it is the mermaid 's sisters that come to her rescue not the prince, and the mermaid 's grandmother is not even included in the Disney version. Third, the story is oversimplified.
We can all remember the Disney movies we were raised with. And we also remember the moment the two main characters gazed upon each other’s eyes and instantly fell in love. Many generations have been raised, most probably subconsciously, with that idea in their head. Yet it is hard to find a real-life couple that are married or going out and are able to truthfully say it was love at first sight. Wouldn’t that just make it a plot device which we can only find in fiction, yet we try to believe in it and make it real, for it is a beautiful lie.

The original Little Mermaid
