This wonderful Disney movie started the new golden age of Disney. The Little Mermaid was magical and amazing in story and in animation. The most successful part of the film was the music by Alan Menken and the lyrics by Howard Ashman
Beautifully animated, fantastic colors in the movie, and a much better story than the original work. A happy ending that we don’t get in the Hans Christian Anderson.
Here is the plot…In Disney’s beguiling animated romp, rebellious 16-year-old mermaid Ariel (Jodi Benson) is fascinated with life on land. On one of her visits to the surface, which are forbidden by her controlling father, King Triton, she falls for a human prince. Determined to be with her new love, Ariel makes a dangerous deal with the sea witch Ursula (Pat Carroll) to become human for three days. But when plans go awry for the star-crossed lovers, the king must make the ultimate sacrifice for his daughter.
