The main project objective I have is making the audience root for a character once hated. I am not trying to turn them against Triton but I would like the audience to have an understanding of why Ursula is the way she is and show her sensitive side.
After quite a bit of research I found so many Disney tales are very ‘female v female” heavy. In every Princesses story another Female is trying to cause her demise, in Cinderella it is her evil Stepmother in Snow White the evil Queen and in Sleeping Beauty the villainous maleficent.
In my story I want to show Ursula actually being supportive of Ariel and not totally evil, whether this be secretly or not. I would like to teach my audience that things work out better when you support one another and in this case when women support women.
