Ursula | Disney Wiki | FANDOM powered by Wikia
When Ariel comes "too close" to succeeding in her task, Ursula takes the form of a beautiful human female with Ariel's voice in order to sabotage her relationship. Ursula is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 28th animated feature film However, Ursula is, in fact, determined to sabotage Ariel's chances at any expense so that Lyricist, producer and writer Howard Ashman had originally envisioned Ursula's relationship with King Triton as a soap opera, and thus. So Triton and Ursula grew up as blood relatives, sibling rivalry abound. Ursula has all of Ariel's ambitious traits turned up to eleven and with.
Eric realizes that it was Ariel who saved him when her voice returns to her and is about to kiss her, but as the sun sets Ariel transforms back into a mermaid and is captured by Ursula. Triton confronts Ursula and agrees to give up himself and his magical trident in return for Ariel's freedom. Ursula then uses the trident to expand into monstrous proportions and attempts to kill Ariel and Eric, but Eric manages to impale Ursula with the splintered bowsprit of a wrecked ship, and she dies.
With Ursula defeated, her power's cease, the merpeople turn back to normal, Triton's power is restored, and Ariel marries Eric once she is permanently transformed into a human. In all four episodes, she executes various plans to antagonize King Triton and take over Atlantica, but all fail.
In the first two episodes, interaction between Ariel and Ursula is kept at a minimum, but in the later ones, Ariel and Ursula face each other more directly. The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea[ edit ] Main article: Return to the Sea because she is killed in the first film, but she is mentioned many times, mostly by her younger sister Morganaalso voiced by Pat Carroll.
In the family portrait during the cut song "Gonna Get My Wish", Ursula was also depicted with light green skin similar to Morgana and their mother. In other media[ edit ] Ursula appears in Disney park attractions such as the Fantasmic! In the Kingdom Hearts video game, Ursula appears as one of Maleficent 's co-conspirators, using the power of the Heartless to attack Atlantica and gain power. In this version of events, the official walkthrough states that Ursula was King Triton's fortuneteller before she was banished.
Chain of Memoriesshe appears as a facsimile created from Sora's memories. In Kingdom Hearts IIUrsula mysteriously returns through the powers of darkness and appears to Ariel, and recreates her film role.
As the film's storyline is retold in the game, Ursula does not recognize Sora and company, and Ariel makes no mention of her defeat in the original Kingdom Hearts. In fact, when Ursula arrives to make the deal with Ariel, the latter reacts as though she has seen Ursula for the first time.
Sora, however, does note that Ursula "got what she deserved" in the first game. At the story's climax, she is defeated when Eric hurls the trident straight through Ursula's chest, destroying her seemingly once and for all. With Ursula's help, the Heartless entered Atlantica.
Ursula tricked Princess Ariel into helping her steal the Trident from King Triton so that she could see other worlds. Ursula didn't keep her end of the deal - she did threaten Ariel to enter into the dark world of the Heartless, giving herself into darkness in the progress, but failed when Sora and company came to King Triton's palace.
She disappeared in ink with the Trident in her possession. Ariel joined Sora, Donald, and Goofy to confront her in her lair to get the Trident back. Once they arrived, she, Flotsam and Jetsam battled them. In the end, Flotsam and Jetsam were defeated, and Ursula swore revenge. She disappeared once again, and Sora and friends found Ursula in a large, scary, empty trench. She used the power of the trident and darkness to become a giant, Sora and friends battled her once again.
She wielded powerful Thunder magic. However, Ariel, Sora and friends defeated her and she vanished into darkness. Chain of Memories Ursula makes an appearance in Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories as a figment of Sora's memories.
She told Ariel that she could help her be with Prince Eric, by turning Ariel herself into a human a spell that only lasted for three days.
Ariel agreed, and signed a contract with Ursula which stated that: After Ariel signed the contract, Ursula took Ariel's voice the price for Ursula's spell and turned the princess into a human girl. After a battle, Sora knocked the Trident out of Ursula's hand and it landed on the boat which Prince Eric was on.

He then threw it at Ursula and the Trident went through her chest in a beam of light, defeating her once more. After her contract expired, Heidi Blickenstaff took over.
Then, topping it off, Faith Prince ended. Ursula got three new songs.
Her basic look was based on the Drag performer Divine, but Divine died before they could get his voice. The character has been compared to Madame Medusa from The Rescuers in terms of style, dramatics, and choice of minions. Pat Carroll, Ursula's voice actress, envisioned the character as "part Shakespearean actress, with all the flair, flamboyance and theatricality, and part used-car salesman with a touch of con artist.
Vanessa During development, Vanessa's, Ursula's human alter ego, story arc went through radical changes as revealed by a leaked script online. Originally, Vanessa's method of hypnotizing Eric was different; instead of suppressing his free will and eliminating his capability to display emotion, she let him have a broader range of emotion and gave him some free will.
The point of this sort of hypnosis was to influence Eric in Vanessa's direction and accept her over Ariel on his own, emphasizing deception over the brute force from the final film. After Vanessa hypnotizes Eric, he introduces Ariel to her on the morning of the third day, announcing that they will be married by sunset.
The Little Mermaid | Dr. Rebecca Hains
This is vastly different from the final film where Ariel eavesdrops on their announcement before running away, never getting a good idea at who Vanessa is until Scuttle tells her.
To better conceal herself due to her being so close to Ariel, Vanessa wears a scarf in the original script as a way to hide her nautilus necklace and not arouse suspicion from Ariel. And when Ariel runs away, Eric is about to run after her, but Vanessa pulls him back and kisses him; using Eric's fake love for her as a way to intimidate him. The scene inside the cabin is exactly the same as the film, but the wedding itself has noticeable differences.
In the original, Vanessa was actually eager to marry Eric and was impatient about the wedding being done before sunset suggesting some ulterior motive aside from just taking Ariel. In the original script, she also gets to actually say "I do" unlike in the final product. Vanessa isn't able to kiss Eric again, though, as the ceremony is disrupted by an explosion off the side of the ship and Scuttle's small army shows up and begins to attack Vanessa.
Vanessa fights back in the original version, much like in the film, but quickly stops when she realizes she is blowing her cover as a sweet innocent girl. She then begs Eric to protect her, which he does. Since Scuttle can't get close to Vanessa, he intends to reveal her true form to Eric by bringing up the mirror from her cabin. He crashes into a pole and the mirror breaks, but Eric is able to see Vanessa for what she is the reflection of the water the sea creatures brought on board the ship.
This breaks the illusion and he rejects her for Ariel. At this point, Vanessa's voice returns to sounding like Ursula's, presumably because the spell has been broken, and Eric and Ariel are about to embrace.
Much like in the final movie, the sun sets before they can kiss, and Vanessa turns back into Ursula, dragging Ariel back with her under the sea. In this ending, Ariel does not get her voice back until the very end, which changes the dynamic of the scene entirely.
No explanation was ever offered as to why this half of the ending was changed. On a separate note, early storyboard concept art revealed that Vanessa and Eric would have originally been married at the castle instead of on a ship, with Ariel lurking above in observance.
This change may have been made to add a sense of urgency for Ariel to stop the wedding by having it take place somewhere else.
