Why Couldn’t They Find a Mermaid to Play Ariel?
Not my Little Mermaid
I know what you’re thinking… it’s hard to find a mermaid these days, especially one who can sing and act.
But what about Aladdin? They cast Will Smith to play the Genie and he can’t do either!
Disney just didn’t look hard enough. There are plenty of fish in the sea and if you ask them nicely, I’m sure they know a few good mermaids who can play the role.
What role am I talking about? Oh, you haven’t heard? Disney just announced their new Little Mermaid, Ariel, and she’s being played by someone who isn’t a mermaid.
I’m outraged! How dare they cast someone who isn’t a mermaid to play this iconic role! I’m not a mermaid myself, but if I was… I’d be seeing red. Now, Disney wants to change that too!
What next? A new movie based on the musical, Cats, played by humans instead of cats? Wait a minute…
Thanks for reading, for more satire…
