Oooh! Let´s engage in a little day dreaming and imagine what would happen if the heroines of our favorite Disney movies were young ladies, gadding about the city circa 2009!
Things between Prince Eric and Ariel rapidly head south when he callously suggests a seafood buffet for their wedding. The nerve! Ariel is crushed that she can´t run home to her sisters, but finds solace in UCLA’s oceanography program. Her classmates are awed by her fantastic swimming abilities. That and the fact that she insists on combing her hair with a fork.
After a few years of pottering around the castle and constantly brushing Beasty Boy’s hair, Belle runs out of gowns to wear and songs to sing. She remembers fondly her days of bookwormery and announces to her mister that it’s high time she went back to school. In September, she joyfully begins her Master of Library Science. Mrs. Potts returns to her teapot state to accompany Belle to grad school and sees her through many cups of Earl Gray and revisions of her thesis.
After marrying into one of Dubai’s royal families, Jasmine spends a few months relishing her new new role as a tabloid fodder royal (“They’re like us! They eat falafel! They chastise their pet monkey for throwing poo!”). However, she quickly realizes that her previous life of singing on carpets and battling evil sorcerers has not prepared her to rule a country. So onwards and upwards: a BA in Public Policy with a minor in music. One can’t completely abandon singing on flying carpets.Who were your favorite fairy tale heroines? And what would they be like these days?
