Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment invites you to dive deep into the secrets of the early years of one of Disney’s most beloved princesses when The Little Mermaid: Ariel’s Beginning comes exclusively to DVD today. A music-filled prequel to one of the most beloved Disney Classics of all time, the film reveals an all-new, spellbinding
chapter of the fun-loving and mischievous mermaid’s amazing oceanic
adventures. More of the dazzling animation and memorable music that
made The Little Mermaid one of the most celebrated films of its kind
will transport viewers into the magical kingdom of Atlantica at the
start of “the greatest undersea story ever told.”
Imagine a time long before Ariel met Prince Eric and walked on land — a time when music was banned from the underwater kingdom of Atlantica. Torn between family duty and her love of music, Ariel must make the most difficult choice of her life. With the help of her friends Sebastian and Flounder, as well as her six amusing sisters, will the young mermaid be able to restore music, friendship and love to the kingdom? The
film pits a wonderfully wicked new villainess, Marina Del Rey, against
Ariel and her plucky pals, and again features the voice talents of Jodi Benson and Samuel E.
Wright, reprising their legendary roles as Ariel and Sebastian, respectively.
Presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen and packed with a treasure trove
of never-before-scene bonus features — including two deleted scenes, cast and crew interviews, quick links to four of the movie’s musical scenes, a 10-minute look at the original film’s Broadway adaptation and more — The Little Mermaid: Ariel’s
Beginning continues the legacy of the film that launched an
extraordinary new era in animation, and won over multiple generations of
filmgoers with grace, charm and catchy choruses.
