    I have a question and I need it answered. In the books, The Little Mermaids’ name is Anya. I thought her name was Ariel. I’m so confused.

        sallysallysally replied 8 hours, 21 minutes ago

        Lol, there are different interpretations of the story, Disney say that her name is Ariel, and Soman believes that her name is Anya and she’s a Reader.

          evergirl45607 replied 7 hours, 53 minutes ago

          Yeah, I just remembered Disney’s The Little Mermaid is an adaptation, but if you read the 3rd book you’d know about the League, and Soman calls the fairytale heroes by their real names, like Cinderella, which is Disney. Why doesn’t he just call The Little Mermaid Ariel? I hope that wasn’t a spoiler, and if it was, hopefully I didn’t reveal much.

          cutenesslily replied 7 hours, 14 minutes ago

          disney’s cinderella, a well as sleeping beauty, peter pan, etc, are. also adaptations

        cutenesslily replied 8 hours, 3 minutes ago

        she doesn’t have a name in the original fairy tale, so adaptations have to give her names themselves

          Oh yeah I forgot Disney was an adaptation. Thanks!

    Hypothetically, if Lady Lesso and Professor Dovey got married, would either of them take the other’s last name? Would it be Lady Lesso and Professor Lesso? Or Lady Dovey and Professor Dovey? Or would they take each other’s title? Lady Lesso and Lady Dovey? Professor Lesso and Professor Dovey? I need answers, Soman.

        Ummmm… I feel like if they got married, they would keep their original names, but I really don’t know.

    Some of y’all are being rude. Why are you all mad that black actors are playing as white characters? You all are so shallow judging on looks instead of talents. Let me get this straight: Looks.

        sparklegirl100 replied 1 week ago

        EXACTLY. Peoples’ expectations are way too high and close minded, and whining about it and asking the movie people to recast them isn’t going to do anything because they’re already filming and having a blast. I personally love the casting and am repeatedly trying not to get frustrated at the complaining and sometimes racism of some of the posts I see.

        cloudydays replied 1 week ago

        I totally agree with what you said, black actors, and black people in general shouldn’t be discriminated against just because of their skin color. Your wording was a tiny bit provoking, though… Sometimes people don’t mean to sound rude and end up sending out the wrong message, that’s all.

          firemitzy replied 1 week ago

          @Cloudydays I just had to do it, we tell them nicely and yet they still act like this. I respect people’s opinions but people like this made me snap. This is where I cross the line.

        YES i agree, the diversity in the cast doesn’t mean that the actors aren’t amazing. this isn’t supposed to be the exact copy of the book, because that’s very unlikely… I’m just glad there’s a movie with wonderful actors and a wonderful book becoming this movie.

          sparklegirl100 replied 6 days, 12 hours ago

          If anything diversity is a GREAT thing because the book is predominantly white and it’s good the Paul, Fiona and the casting team are helping update it for a 2022 audience. No one wants to see a fairytale movie with all white people. It’s been done to death.

          If you’re not a POC, you don’t get to decide what’s racist or not. Their opinions are rooted in internalized racism because they called out the black actors but none of the others. There’s nothing you can do since they’ve all been cast and are filming. I understand that opinions should be respected, but racism is not one of them.

        I can totally see Soman having a role In the SGE movie. Maybe he would be like Stan Lee and have little cameos in all of the movies. That would be fun.
