Let's get one thing straight Weedle. Ariel has no superhuman abilities and has no super strength. There was never any official confirmation, and what you claim is seen in the film doesn't make it proof. I hereby ban these speculations and don't want you making a fuss about it or giving me one of your long explinations that I don't care about.
Furthermore we are keeping it simple, and not over written.
Yeah, actually, she did have superhuman abilities and super strength. Otherwise, she would not have moved that boulder an inch (and let me tell you, from what I've heard about diving, if you tried to open a door underwater, no luck, because it fuses shut, and requires tools to breach). And aside from that, she also was able to swim with that weight around her tail.
Bear in mind also that the guys who did The Little Mermaid had to do a lot of research to get the effects of underwater areas right, meaning they did their homework on studying the physics and landscapes of underwater environments, so they most certainly would have known about those bits.
And last I checked, if it's in the film (or any expanded universe stuff), it's by definition confirmed. Period. This isn't like, say, Ariel using heat-vision or breathing icy gales where there's literally nothing in the movie to even remotely suggest those as being her powers and only headcanon and made up, this is directly shown in the movie and expanded media.
Contiuning our conversation because for some reason this site doesnt let me reply back twice its been assumed by many that the king is still fighting the wars that Phoebus came back from so he isnt around to stop Frollo.
Knowing the more anti-Christian messaging of the Disney version, even with the archdeacon (quite frankly, if I must be blunt, depicting one of the gargoyles of Notre Dame as a homosexual was just blasphemous just going by what the Bible says about the activity), I wouldn't even be surprised if Disney thought the king would have tacitly agreed with Frollo in his actions, even the torching of Paris. After all, if the king didn't condone or agree with his actions, Frollo would have at the very least been fired a long time prior, if not executed swiftly.
Okay. So what happened to Frollo's soldiers btw? I like to hope they were imprisoned or exectued for their crimes after all I really dont think "Just following orders" is an excuse for carrying out such sinister deeds.
How much control/influence do you think a group of power individuals, whose country sun rises in the east, and who has a large hold in Disney's pocket. Can demand the company to rethink their company's decision making whether it be filming, marketing, casting, etc?
Can you clarify what exactly you mean by that question? Are you asking if it's possible for the board of directors and/or shareholders for Disney can get them to rethink Disney's decision making for whatever it's doing?
Well, I generally don't hold to favorites, but if I must choose... I'd probably go with either the Richard Purdum draft, or the Cox draft, mostly because thematically, both versions were pretty close to the original story by Villevneue/Beaumont. Plus, in those versions, at least Belle had an actual excuse for putting up with the village life instead of leaving, not to mention actually HAD foils that represented the moral of the tale well (Belle's Sisters and Aunt Marguerite actually embodied inner ugliness, contrasted with the Bimbettes, who if you ask me looked like they not only blew Belle's outer beauty out of the water, but from what little we saw of them, they looked like they came closer to having actual inner beauty than Belle did). Quite frankly, Beauty and the Beast was one of those stories that didn't need as extensive of a rewrite that it got. At least with The Little Mermaid, the ending being changed was kind of necessary since it wasn't really child friendly (it would be like showing your four year old the scene where Senator Kinsey melts in the X-Men movie), there was nothing warranting that kind of rewrite that you'd expect from, say, The Jungle Book (doesn't help either that Linda Woolverton and Don Hahn outright boasted that they radically rewrote the tale to push a social agenda on the masses).
I am sorry for the edit on Alex's page. But, him being the son of Urchin and Gabriella is just too speculative, and his resemblance to the young man is simply a coinsidence, as if the young man is actually a transformed mermaid. That's why I edited the page in the first place.
I wish you wouldn't make such comparisons when someone is talking fan-fiction or ideas. You didn't comment about my idea for the third Anthology film, you were commenting about the Empire in comparison with unsettling topics in the real world. You didn't make any compliment about my idea, or suggest an even better one. This is Disney Wiki. Please in future consider what you are going to say. It's what got you into trouble several times before.
If you reply, do it without writing a long sentence explaining why you say what you say. A simple "I understand and I will try" will do.
