Part of Your World (Reprise)

I might like the reprise of this song better than the full version.

I have to wonder how Ariel gets from onshore to five feet into the ocean. She moves off camera, so we don't see it. Does she roll in circles, does she summersault, does she wiggle backwards, does she teleport? No matter how she does it, it happens VERY QUICKLY.

"What would I give to live where you are? What would I pay to stay here beside you?" Your voice, Ariel. You're going to give your voice.

"Where would we walk? Where would we run, if we could stay all day in the sun?" It's funny. When Ariel becomes a human, she sits down at the dinner table, spends the day seated in Eric's carriage tour of the kingdom and sits in a boat for "Kiss the Girl". She never does any running as a human, even though she says it's one of the main attractions.

"I don't know when. I don't know how. But I know something's starting right now." Um, Ariel, RIGHT NOW counts as "when".

"Watch and you'll see. Someday I'll be part of your world." SPOILER ALERT, ARIEL, JEEZ!!!

For that matter, how did she manage to get herself (not to mention Prince Eric) that far up on the beach in the first place?

I think that's known as the animators cheating, they had no idea how it happened either. ;-)

Also, that's not "spoiling" that's "foreshadowing". :-p

Your Disney things are getting old. Speaking as a huge Disney fan, queen of Disney trivia, and basically the Disneyest Disneyer I know, there are a lot of cool plot discussions and critiques you could delve into in various movies; but instead you focus on dumb, bland points of the films, or parts that you clearly didn't think about, or just plain missed - eg, your Frozen and Tangled posts/tweets. Step it up.

Now when I watch the reprise, I realized how OLD the movie is.... wow. Ariel's tail looks super light green, not the bright green you see in all the pictures.
