Cartoon creators have long been criticised for their limited depiction of female beauty, but over the last few years Disney has made a notable effort to introduce greater ethnic diversity into its productions.

While this move has received much praise, many people still believe that not enough body types are represented by the much-loved Disney princesses.

Because of this situation YouTube star Loey Lane decided to film herself dressed in a Little Mermaid style bikini.

In a video which had been viewed more than 160,000 times since March, the plus-size fashion and beauty vlogger explains why having curvy Disney princesses or Barbies to look up to as a child would have made her feel more comfortable with her own body.

The self-proclaimed "Not So Little Mermaid" reflects back on one childhood experience in particular when she visited a Disney centre on a youth trip and realised that the Little Mermaid character who best represented her frame was the evil villain Ursula.

Check out her video below:

Ariel is, without a doubt, one of the most iconic redheads of all time. And when people think of The Little Mermaid, they think about the strawberry-topped mermaid swimming around the sea. 

But not anymore, it seems. It has been confirmed that the upcoming live action remake of The Little Mermaid will feature Ariel with… blonde hair. *Shivers* 

Chloe Grace Moretz, who is set to play the famous mermaid, made the startling revelation in an interview with Entertainment Weekly earlier this week.

"We’re going off the Hans Christian Anderson novel, so I’ll actually have blonde hair." Noooo!

But the Internet is having absolutely none of it:

And it really is a tragedy with redheads everywhere:

We really can’t wait for this one. Chloe Grace Moretz has been cast to play Ariel in the new live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Chloe will play the mermaid princess who falls in love with a beautiful prince and trades her tails for legs and feet in order to be with her man.

However, there's a twist. We’re not talking about the lovely Disney movie here. Nope, Universal are making the Hans Christian Anderson story come to life and it will be based on the original Danish fairytale, so it will probably be WAY darker than the Disney classic.

Still, we can’t wait to see the movie, and more exciting, we can’t wait to find out who will play her prince.
