The Disney film The Little Mermaid was not an original story.
That story comes from none other than the great story master himself, Hans Christian Andersen.
Like most of the Disney adaptations, however, The Little Mermaid ends a little differently than the original version.
Andersen’s Little Mermaid ends with the leading lady getting turned into sea foam.
The Disney corporation added just a bit more pizzazz: They allowed her to morph into a human and live happily ever after.
Who wouldn’t like the Disney version better?
