"...You might never get rich, I'm tellin' ya it's better than digging a ditch!"
― Christina, singingChristina Maria Aguilera (or simply Christina by Oscar) is a minor and guest character in the 2004 film Shark Tale. She is a yellow, white, and pinkish-red Jamaican jellyfish with an occupation of worker/singer at the Whale Wash.
Christina and longtime collaborator Missy Elliot were brought on board at Dreamworks to appear in a closing-scene musical number which features the two, as animated sea creatures, performing their cover of Rose Royce's 1976 hit as the credits roll.
Describing the scene, Christina had this to say:
Aguilera says, "It's kind of a big-ending celebration scene. The fishes are doing a whole dance, they're getting down at this point in the movie. It's very, very cute. It's very, very funny."
For the very small amount of screentime, she gets in the films, she is beautifully singing her gills off with a grin on her face.
Christina, like her human counterpart, shares a lot of traits as they are nearly the same person/fish. She is optimistic and masters the resilience to overcome many setbacks. Thanks to her gift for self expression, she can be the life of the party, and the center of attention, as seen in the final moments of the film, performing alongside her best friend, Missy.
She is socially active, popular, and inspires people with her sunny "happy go lucky" attitude.
Despite being a rain of sunshine in even the darkest depths of the ocean, Christina is emotional and vulnerable. She can be generous to a fault, but when hurt, she withdraws into a cloud of silence, eventually emerging from her reticence with jokes and laughter that cover up her true feelings.
- She is (obviously) modeled after and voiced by actress and singer-songwriter, Christina Aguliera.
- In-universe, Christina is currently dating Cod Stewart.
- Though her exact species is speculated to be a 'Jamaican jellyfish' similar to Ernie and Bernie, she bears a more striking resemblance to a Arctic Lion's mane Jellyfish.
- She is distant cousins with Ernie and Bernie, though with widely different color schemes despite being the same species.
