This Theory About ‘Moana’ And ‘The Little Mermaid’ Points Out A Bunch Of Stuff We Didn’t Realize


There's something pretty cool about fan theories. I don't know what it is — whether it's the fact that people take the time to come up with these intricate theories for no reason other than they feel like it or that it gives you a new lens with which you can watch your favorite TV shows and movies, it's something that has always been awesome and has only evolved with the creation of the Internet. 

Tumblr user intergalactic-ashkenazi has a pretty interesting theory about Disney's The Little Mermaid and Moana being polar opposites to each other in terms of plot. "Moana is the reverse of The Little Mermaid," the Tumblr user begins.
