An incompatible union, this time between an ogre and a princess, is the basis for the movie Shrek. The life of the author of The Little Mermaid is told, with reenactments of some of his other famous stories, in the film Hans Christian Andersen: My Life as a Fairy Tale. In 2000 Disney followed up with a sequel, The Little Mermaid II.
