The Little Mermaid Story
The Little Mermaid is a beautiful love story, cherished by young and old audiences alike. In a magical kingdom under the sea, the mermaid princess Ariel, King Triton’s youngest daughter, is fascinated with the world and the lives of the people who live above her aquatic world. She longs to experience life on dry land and, after becoming smitten with the human Prince Eric, makes a bargain with Ursula, the evil sea witch. Ariel trades her tail for legs so that she can become fully human and live with Prince Eric in his world.
When the bargain has disastrous consequences that Ariel didn’t foresee, she needs help from her friends, Sebastian the crab, Scuttle the seagull and Flounder the fish, to reverse the damage done and make everything right again in her father’s kingdom.
