A group of gypsies sneak illegally into Paris, but are ambushed by Judge Claude FrolloParis' Minister of Justiceand his soldiers. A gypsy woman in the group attempts to flee with her deformed baby, but Frollo chases and kills her outside Notre Dame. He tries to kill the baby as well, but the cathedral's archdeacon intervenes and accuses Frollo of murdering an innocent woman. To atone for his sin, Frollo reluctantly agrees to raise the deformed child in Notre Dame as his son, naming him " Quasimodo ".
Didn't Think This Through: After Ariel hears the deal about if she does or doesn't kiss Eric, she starts reasoning that if she becomes human, she'll never see her father or sisters again. Considering what Triton just did, it's very wise of her to factor this in to her decision.
Ursula then points out, "But you'll have your man. Life has tough choices in it, heh-heh. Ursula interrupts with, "You've got your looks!
While Ariel impulsively signs the contract and runs into problems communicating with Eric, she did put some thought into what she was doing. She turns Ariel into a being that can't breathe water while Ariel's at the bottom of the sea. To make matters worse, Ariel can't swim as well in her human form and it's freezing in the ocean at that depth, so how was Ursula going to get Ariel to the surface if Sebastian and Flounder hadn't been watching?
On early pressings of the Diamond Edition Blu-Ray, the ending of the "Part of Your World" sequence plays differently than it originally did.
Instead of cutting from Ariel reaching her hand out towards the surface, to her floating back down onto a rock, it cuts from Ariel reaching out, to Flounder looking sad. Also, the scene transition when Ariel and Flounder go to visit Scuttle has changed from a dissolve to a cut.
See the Digital Destruction entry for more. When Ariel is first transformed into a human, despite the scene being shadowy, much of Ariel's nude lower body could be seen if one lightened the colors on their monitor.
However, on the Diamond Blu Ray print, they deliberately darkened the shadows so Ariel is more in silhouette after her transformation, rendering her butt and the area in between her legs impossible to see, no matter how bright the color on your monitor is.
Of course, there was never any real detail to any of it, anyway. One of the most iconic albeit also successful examples of the trope.
The Bittersweet Ending of the book is now a clear happy ending, trading her voice is substituted for having her tongue cut out, and Ariel's fate if she fails doesn't involve death.
Also, in the original story, the sea witch was a True Neutral character. In the movie, she's named Ursula and upgraded to the Big Bad. Disney Princess Disney Villain Death: Averted quite horrifically for a kid's film. To put it simply, Flotsam and Jetsam were electrocuted and disintegrated by a misfire from the Trident, and Ursula was impaled by a broken bow of the shipelectrocuted due to the Trident's blast backfiring on her, sinking, and then exploding.
In both cases, the animators even went as far as to detail all of their pieces sinking down to the ocean floor. In fact, only one character, Ariel, actually ended up falling down a very huge height, and she survived.
Does Not Like Shoes: There are more shots of human Ariel with clearly bare feet than clearly wearing shoes. According to Word of GodAriel's fascination with the human world at least partially actually came out of her father's strict forbidding of it.
Dramatically Missing the Point: When Flounder tries to defend Ariel and tells about how they were chased by a shark which could have killed both of them, Triton's response is fairly lackadaisical.
But, the second Flounder accidentally lets it slip that they went to the surface, Triton goes apeshit. Which is strikingly bizarre for an Overprotective Dad trying his very best to keep his youngest daughter out of harm's way. Never, ever let Ariel drive your horse-drawn carriage unless she learned better since then.
Exactly how a globe first explodes after King Triton fires an energy bolt from his trident in Ariel's grotto, along with the rest of Ariel's human treasures it's something he quickly regrets.The Walt Disney Company has prompted action from activists, artists, and causes around the world.
Due to its status as a powerful and influential company, Disney's business practices, executives and content have been heavily disapproved in the media, as well as by activist groups.
