Hook: When we are young, the world of adults seems to be dull and monotonous, yet the idea of independence seems stimulating and enticing. Ariel, in the film The Little Mermaid, and Mulan, in the film, Mulan, are both examples of young adults who flee from their childhood worlds to the unpredictable and foreign world of adult responsibilities. Ariel is a young mermaid who is dissatisfied with her life in the sea and longs to be a part of human society on land. She so desperately wants out of the dull pattern of life in the sea that she makes a deal with a sea witch who turns Ariel into a human in exchange for her voice. Ariel’s challenge is to successfully fit into human society without being able to speak a word. Mulan, on the other hand, breaks free of her childhood world, not simply because she is dissatisfied with her life, but because she wishes to keep her family together. When her father is chosen to go to war, Mulan disguises herself as a young man so that she can go in her father’s place. Her challenge, similar to Ariel’s, is to fit into the world as a totally different person. YOUR THESIS GOES HERE
