The Legacy of ‘The Little Mermaid’: Lightened-Up Fairy Tales for the Younger Set

Animated films have long plundered classic fairy tales to build their modern stories (at least four of the Disney Princesses alone are pulled from Brothers Grimm tales), but Hans Christian Andersen’s rise to posthumous family-friendly prominence didn’t come into play until the late eighties, when Disney’s ‘The Little Mermaid’ (which turns twenty-five this week) first swam on to our cinematic shores. The introduction of Ariel also effectively ended a Princess drought – there had not been a new Princess-centric film since 1959, but after Ariel splashed on to the scene, the House of Mouse started churning out a new one with startlingly regularity (four in the nineties alone) – but its real legacy is introducing Andersen to the younger set by way of mainstream animated outings.

With 'Frozen' still a raging phenomenon and 'Big Hero 6' right around the corner, the folks at Disney Animation are probably feeling pretty good about their lives and careers at the moment.

Prepare for the merchandise, parents.

If you have kids or little brothers and sisters, you've probably seen 'Frozen' ohhh a thousand times by now. But, even if you can sing "Let It Go" forwards and backwards in your sleep, you still might not know everything there is to know about Disney's biggest animated movie ever.

ABC's series 'Once Upon a Time' has already plowed through a hefty number of fairy tale characters and stories in its three seasons on the air, so it wasn't a huge surprise when the show decided to add in some newish tales -- it was, however, a bit of a shock that they had snagged Disney's smash hit 'Frozen' to make the leap to the small (and live-action) screen.

We were as surprised as any to learn that ABC's fairy tale mashup 'Once Upon A Time' would dip into more recent fare with an appearance from 'Frozen''s Elsa, Ana and Kristoff, but those expecting to see Idina Menzel or Kristen Bell reprise the roles may be left in the cold. 'Fringe' star Georgina Haig has landed the role of 'Frozen''s ice queen Elsa, while the fairy tale has also cast the season 4 roles of 'Once Upon a Time''s Anna and Kristoff.

"Let It Go" isn't just a song from a Disney movie - it's a flat-out cultural phenomenon. The Oscar-winning 'Frozen' song has had everyone singing along (in the car, in the shower, in the kitchen) for months, but now even the professionals are getting into the act. Over the weekend, rock superstars Pearl Jam performed in Milan, Italy and busted out their rendition of the new Disney classic.

'Frozen' is a juggernaut. In addition to winning two Academy Awards and becoming the highest-grossing animated film of all time, the movie has seemingly struck a chord with an entire generation. You can't go out in public these days without hearing an adorable kid belt out a hilariously mangled version of "Let It Go." It's already a cultural touchstone. Children are going to be raised on this movie.
And, shockingly, Disney is not talking at all about 'Frozen 2.'

In what had become an inevitability at this point with the insanely rising box office numbers, Disney's smash hit animated film 'Frozen' has now become the highest grossing animated film of all time, usurping former crown holder 'Toy Story 3,' which held the title since 2010. And judging by these numbers and the love for the film, it doesn't look like 'Frozen' is going to "Let It Go" so easily.

Apparently, being 'Tonight Show' host means that you can get access to a lot of wild stuff, like private phone chats (with split-screen video, most improbably) between President Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin about the situation in Crimea. At least, that's what host Jimmy Fallon wants us to believe.
