The Little Mermaid has always been one of my very favorite Disney movies. I think being a redhead I was happy to finally have a princess, that looked like me, growing up. It was nice not being the redheaded step child in Princess land lol. Of course now that I have my own daughters I am loving having girly time with them while the boys are at school. We get to dress up, have tea parties and watch all the princess movies we want. Zylie cannot wait until The Little Mermaid shows up on our door and we get to watch it in beautiful high definition Blu-ray!
Ariel (voiced by Jodi Benson), is a free-spirited mermaid, who is off on the adventure of a lifetime with her best friend, the adorable Flounder (voiced by Jason Marin), and the reggae-singing Caribbean crab Sebastian (voiced by Samuel E. Wright) at her side. But it will take all of her courage and determination to make her dreams come true—and save her father’s beloved kingdom from the sneaky sea witch Ursula (voiced by Pat Carroll).
