Ariel was definitely a feminist. It was incredible that she saved the prince. As a former lifeguard, I really love that she did that.

You brought up some amazing themes that I never saw because I was so young when I first watched it. Ariel is so hardworking. She got what she wanted in the end because she persisted. It was about her wanting to be happy and I admire that.
