Did you know? In early versions of the script, Ursula and King Triton were siblings? This was something that was carried on to the Broadway adaption, even going further into the back story stating that Poseidon was their father. In some adaptions of the Broadway play it is stated that Ursula grew power hungry and decided to kill off her father in order to gain the throne, the only person to witness her doing this was Ariel’s mother, who she soon murdered to keep it a secret. In a fit of anger in the play she confesses to all of these crimes. Twisted family huh?
