Of course sh’ can
Cause she needs to be able to swim
@JewishXenu, actually laughed out loud at this one!
@JewishXenu, damn, dude I scuba dive. I don’t see how this has so many likes. It’s a children’s movie what’s the big deal?
@LightskinDarkNig, it's a joke about the stereotype that black people can't swim. Just trying to find some enjoyment out of these live-action remakes
@JewishXenu, I guess the jambalaya gonna need some rethinking if fish are friends.
@Captain Correction, tf dude downvoted me for scuba diving? I’ve heard about you, your the guys who’s mom swallows like a pro at her home made glory hole studio.
Do you guys think they wanted a ginger but the casting director has dyslexia?
@Devious Olive , perfect
@Devious Olive , oh.... OH
Because of your spelling, that's why
@Not him again, you know she was thicc
Aerial is an underwater mythical fvcking creature. Her race does not matter. If they made Mulan, Jasmine, Merida, or Belle black, there would be a reason because their race specifically matches their story’s location. Ariel lives in the ocean and should not even exist so her race is really irrelevant.
@K1l, you're right, thing is, at least in my case, I was just hoping that the actress would look like the character from the animated movie since it's a live action adaptation. I honestly hope Halle Bailey does great in her role and that it's a new, original spin on the character and story because otherwise, it just feels cheap and lazy to have the same story as the animated one with just the races being different. Disney has done great jobs with Aladdin and Mulan with having the characters be racially appropriate so far (I'm glad they didn't go with the original plan of having a white character as a protagonist in Mulan since there were no white characters in the original movie or legend) so I have faith in the movie
Disney executives in the board meeting when that one person says ....
@Zaann, *throws out window*
so sick of people calling it racism when it's just that you want the character to look like the f****** character! Helen Mirren playing Ariel would have p****d me off just as much.
@BritKneeShears , but see this comment is racist
@BritKneeShears , I agree
didn du nuffin
Dudes it isn’t a historical character. It’s make believe, so why can’t we pretend she’s black? Because the original cartoon had her white? It’s make believe, the cartoon will always be better but I’d really like for there to be more positive role models for black little girls who don’t speak Ebonics, that ish drives me up the wall. The whole ghetto mentality has never been for me and it does chafe against our society so let it be softened a little at a time by allowing blacks and lightskins and brownies too, to see a girl stand up straight and speak well and sound educated. I hate feeling like an outlier from the people I am most often associated with.
@LightskinDarkNig, i love brownies, my grandma makes them sometimes and they are pretty yummy. I don't see why anyone wouldn't like brownies
@YaBoiSlimG, *teacher* class were straying from the topic at hand
*one student* but I like brownies
*the rest of the class* yeah brownies are good
*teacher* okay but the British supply lines were cut and no sugar meant no brownies
*entire class* gasps
@LightskinDarkNig, T'chala (Black Panther) isnt a historical character either. You dont think people would have lost their F'n minds if they had cast Keanu Reeves instead of Chad Boseman?
I guarantee that Hans Christen Anderson envisioned his mermaids with European features. Just like Stan Lee and Jack Kirby envisioned Black Panther as African.
@TexTom69, so you’re offended that some dead dudes vision had been appropriated? You didn’t even address any of the points I made you just brought a bunch of your own. Smells like someone wants a flame war but I’m kind of over it, like you will be eventually. If you don’t like the movie, don’t see it. I’m not going to because I don’t care about children’s movies like that. Have a good day. If you respond I won’t read it. Know your words are wasted and going into a vacuum of fûcks not given.
@LightskinDarkNig, ok...you say you want to see a role model for blacks and "brownies" that stands straight and speaks good english. You do realize that Ariel is mute for the majority of the movie, right?
