did prince eric ever expect to get married to a fish?
I think he did, in his wildest dreams about the ocean. Of course he’d expect to marry a fish, he would’ve married the ocean if he could.
I bet it was his greatest wish like, “God, if I could have anything for my 21st birthday I’d really like to mate with some fish. And then spawn a semi-aquatic animal thing after I turn my swag on. But another boat I guess is ok”
That’s probably why Eric didn’t nag on Ariel when he found out Because he was expecting her. He wanted those gills.
The specific kingdom? It’s not stated in the movie, but many people believe that he may be Danish because of Hans Christian Andersen apparently appears in the television series. (There’s a good deal it may be Copenhagen, there’s a statue of ‘the little mermaid’ there) Unfortunately, the name of the kingdom is not explicitly stated in the movie.
