Fan Art: What If Ariel Was Evil?
In the original plans for the 1989 animated film The Little Mermaid, Ursula, the sea witch, was actually King Triton’s sister, making her Ariel’s aunt. That concept was eventually abandoned, but was used in the Broadway version of the story. Artist Alane @Aleikats, recently tweeted out some concept art, describing them as “If Ariel was under Ursula's care and grew up to be her sea witch apprentice.”
