[QUOTE=Goofballorama;1125467]In traditional mermaid folklore, mermaids are somehow able to change men into mermen. I’m not sure how or when, but I’m almost positive that that it what she did. Also, how can you let someone like “the last English Catholic missionary” (as my best friend and I refer to him) just die. That’s blasphemy.[/QUOTE]
I kind of thought that’s what they were hinting at. I don’t know why the open ending for them bothered me so much - I guess because they made the mermaid/missionary plot a pretty big part of the movie, but then they just kind of dropped it at the end.
[QUOTE=Captgoodguy;1125473]On a similar note, I was in WDW this past week and noticed something on PoTC that I’ve never noticed before (probably because it’s always been too noisey). You can hear the mermaids singing and splashing in the water. Has anyone else noticed this?[/QUOTE]
Yes! I went to Disney in early November before I saw the movie. I thought the effect was neat but a little too subtle - half my family didn’t even see it. But after seeing the movie, I think the effect is perfect! The splashes look just like the mermaids when they first start circling the boat. I love it - awesome little touch up to the ride!
