Well, some people who know me well, know that The Little Mermaid is my all time favourite cartoon movie ever made. I was watching the preveiws with Joshua, on Annabelle's Cinderella movie and guess what???... It is finally being released on DVD October 2006!!! I am so excited!!! I know that The Little Mermaid is a little too scary for my little princess right now but I can't wait to watch it on my own. I havn't since I was a little girl. YAY!!!!!
So what is kind of interesting is that when I was a teenager I was looking online at the story of The Little Mermaid for an English project (partly why I love English so much, I could actually do things that were interesting to me as an individual) and I came across the origional story of The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen, written in 1836. I ended up doing my project on it. I printed it out today to re-read it. It is much more sad, of course, than the Disney movie but if anyone has an extra bit of time and is interested in reading it... http://hca.gilead.org.il/li_merma.html
