I Can’t Stop Thinking About This “Moana” Tumblr Post

Tumblr user intergalactic-ashkenazi realized something about Moana and The Little Mermaid that’ll forever change how you watch each movie.

“Moana is the reverse of The Little Mermaid,” they wrote.

This isn’t the first time Moana has been compared to another movie: Tumblr users drew a lot of comparisons between the Disney movie and the Lord of the Rings trilogy, too. But this time, each similarity between the movies is also reversed.

It might seem unlikely at first, but when you look at all the details that various Tumblr users have added to the post to back up the theory, it’s incredibly convincing.

Careful — Moana and The Little Mermaid spoilers follow!

In Moana, the daughter of a chief wants to go to the ocean. In The Little Mermaid, the daughter of a king wants to go on land.


Disney

In Little Mermaid, there’s a “big, scary ocean lady” who’s a villain. In Moana, there’s a “big, scary land lady” who turns out to be good.

In Little Mermaid, the villain has a magical necklace with a spiral on it. In Moana, the hero has a necklace that holds a magical stone with a spiral on it.


Disney

The Little Mermaid has a small, good crab. Moana has a big, evil crab.


Disney

Not only that, but in Little Mermaid, a human sings about eating a crab. In Moana, a crab sings about eating a human.


Disney

In Moana, the heroine returns home and reunites with her family. In Little Mermaid, the heroine leaves her family behind to start a new life on land.

But Tumblr user asterlunanova pointed out the most important detail…

In The Little Mermaid, she sings on a rock. In Moana, The Rock sings to her.

There’s even more in the original Tumblr post, which you can read here.
