I Like Thinking, Disney edition

So, a couple of days ago a friend of mine and I were talking about how Frozen fits into the Disney universe, which eventually led to Ursala from The Little Mermaid being the cause of the storm that killed Elsa’s parents. I’m aware that this has already been widely discussed, but it led to an interesting observation – Ariel’s mother is never seen in the movie. That’s not that big a deal until you look at her sisters. They look completely different. She’s also capable of instantly making any man love her just by singing. Anyone who’s read The Odyssey can tell you there’s only one thing like that, which leads to the conclusion: King Triton was seduced by a siren, who was Ariel’s mother, after which her sisters’ mother left. Her sisters are mean to her because, well, draw your own conclusions.
