Why The Live-Action Little Mermaid Doesn’t End With a Wedding

Marshall stated, “Well, we thought about it, but we thought it was really important that the union that they create is something that actually begins the healing process of between these two worlds.” He is, in fact, speaking concerning the ocean folks and the land folks, who’ve a really tense relationship. A wedding between an individual from every would is a time-honored approach of peacemaking, no matter your emotions about it. 

DeLuca defined that they determined as a substitute to focus on making the connection between Ariel and Eric one in every of deep friendship. He stated: 

” … we really wanted the relationship to be what won out and having them really experiencing each other as friends — deep, deep friendship. So it wasn’t just falling in love with a handsome guy or the pretty girl. The wedding, we didn’t show the wedding. We don’t really have a wedding because we didn’t want to make it that it was all the penultimate thing is the wedding. No, it’s the relationship. They’re going off together and adventuring together.”

Though I’ll admit that teen princesses getting married has at all times been a bizarre idea for me, I really like that they are a minimum of specializing in constructing a connection moderately than simply the ceremony. They’re going adventuring because the film ends, constructing the connection additional and bringing their worlds collectively in a brand new approach. 

“The Little Mermaid” is at the moment in theaters.
