"Fairy tales are the soul of the world..."



I can get behind that. Or at least behind "Little Mermaid" as told by Hans Christian Andersen, anyway. There's a lot of fun in singing lobsters, but I"m not sure how much soul... Disney versions of beloved fairytales are those stories seen in a mirror, one that takes deep and fundamental truths and sorrows and reflects them back as entertainment. (And I say this as one who grew up with the Disney versions of Snow White and Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty and loved them with a fierce love when I was young...)
