Once upon a time, there was a beautiful little princess who had severely suffered for such a long time. However, she does not stop fighting and with the help of the fairies, she finally finds her prince and they live happily ever after. This is the classic plot of Disney animated movies. Disney always tries to convey positive messages through their movies, such as evils can’t win no matter what, or if you’re trying your best, you’ll finally be happy.
However, the reality is not always as beautiful as fairy tales. If I told you that Hercules was the one who killed Megara and their children out of jealousy, what would you think?
