Ursula – The Little Mermaid

Under the seeeea! Do-do do do! Ooooh, under the sea…

Day 21 of the A to Z Challenge is loosely about Ursula, but mostly just about the movie The Little Mermaid! (Click here for the full list of topics)

Ariel and Ursula

I love Disney movies, and The Little Mermaid was my favourite as a little girl. I had an Ariel barbie, a nightgown, and who knows what else. (Honestly, I don’t remember, but I know there was more!)

Although I loved Ariel and really wanted her to defeat the evil sea witch, I also loved Ursula. She had one of the best Disney villain songs ever (Poooor Unfortunate Soooooul), and she turned merpeople into weird creepy seaweed-like creatures that she kept as a sort of garden. Hello, scary.

As an adult, I still love The Little Mermaid. I sing the catchy songs from it all the time (just ask my husband) and every once in a while I watch it (by myself because my husband won’t watch it with me). I do this with most Disney princess movies, but The Little Mermaid seems to be my go-to when it comes to singing in the shower. What better song is there to sing when having water rain on you from above than “Under the Sea”?

Ariel may be a silly teenager suffering from a case of “love at first sight” who would foolishly sign a contract with a psychotic sea witch, but really she is just trying to find happiness and figure out what she wants in life. And isn’t that what every teenager is trying to find? Now Ursula, she just wants to rule the seas, and she will do anything to get her crown. Which is obvious from the start, which makes Ariel seem even more naive and silly… Ooooh Ariel… But really, every teenager is naive. And every teenager needs their daddy (or mom) to come to the rescue at some point. And really, her dad is kick ass. He gave himself up in his daughters stead. Best dad of the year award goes to…

What’s you favourite Disney princess movie?
