* NonStandardCharacterDesign: Ironically, the merpeople have much more realistic designs and proportions than those of the humans (With the exception of Eric and Vanessa.)

Added DiffLines:


A live action remake for the film is currently in development, with Music/AlanMenken returning as the composer and writing new songs alongside Creator/LinManuelMiranda, who is co-producing the film with Marc Platt.


Added DiffLines:

* CarnivoreConfusion: The main reason that King Triton and Sebastian don't like humans is because that they hunt and eat fish. This ignores the fact there are countless sea creatures that prey on other sea life. Even ignoring the shark that tried to eat Ariel and Flounder, ''Under the Sea'' featured plenty of aquatic life that get most of their meals through predation, including crustaceans like Sebastian.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: The "Under the Sea" musical number has Sebastian singing about how humans use fish for food. In the middle of the film, poor Sebastian ends up in a kitchen full of fish food, and almost becomes food himself.

* ShownTheirWork: Ursula's blood is shown to be blue when Eric harpoons her. Cephalopods do indeed have blue blood in real life.

Added DiffLines:

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Ursula has only six tentacles instead of the traditional eight because of budget issues. Though if you include her arms, she does have eight limbs.
