As a young child I thought the movie was magical, that they were meant for eachother. What Ariel did was fine and was just an adventurous princess. I’d cry at the end of the movie as I just didn’t understand why she’d leave her family for the prince though. I mean, every time! Took years before I started to understand, but still not accept it.
Now, I can’t believe she is doing all this at age 16. But, her doing wreckless things makes sense due to her age. I am still as much in love with the songs as I was as a child and enjoy the look of the characters and such. I am no longer sad at the end of the movie, but my sappy self am still moved slightly by the ending, but more so by the father giving his daughter the legs she wants.
Only a small look at the differences, but I see it in so many movies I watch with my niece and nephews. The Last Unicorn being one of the biggest differences. I loved it and watched and rewatched it, but now think it is just awful. Do you have any movies where this has happened to you?
