Just when you thought you saw the last of her!


I remeber when the Little Mermaid came out and what a commotion it made. It may have just been the single most popular Disney move of my generation. I'm sure even kids of this generation do not need an introduction to Ariel I always wonder whats behind the Disney characters I love. I mean its not like they just appeared one day (ok, maybe they did.. but I'm sure the writers had some sense of who the characters were before they just appeared in their Disney movies). Well, someone must have been listening as Ariel is back in a all new movie that depicts her life before the hansom prince, and the original Little Mermaid story.

The first thing I want to say before anything else, this is a sequel movie and by tradition sequels are well sequels and with the rare exception they are usually less than shining than the original, however enough time has passed between the original movie and this new dvd so I think it should be judged on its own and not against the Little Mermaid. Sure Ariel is still the main character but the storyline is all to its own. The other thing I just have to say is the animation is the same as the original. Nothing gets me more worked up that disney classic drawn animation. I personally am not a huge fan of the 3D and 2D animations with again a very rare acception (Blizzard studios.. I love you..heh..) but still nothing is prettier than a classically animated Disney movie period.. sorry all those 3D animators out there. Enough of that rant though, I realize its a slowly dying art so I'm glad to see it when I can get it.

Otherwise Little Mermaid : Ariel's Beginnings has a great story and a classically Disney great soundtrack. Ironically the movie is about a ban the underwater city of Atlantica puts on music. Seriously, think about that one for a second, Ariel the mermaid that breaks out into song at least every five frames, without music? Are you kidding? heh. Needless to say Ariel has her work cut out for her and with the help of my favorite lobster Sebastian and of course Flounder they are on a mission to get music restored to Atlantica.
