The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning on DVD

The Story

See how it all started for one of Disney’s most beloved characters in the all-new movie, The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning.

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 and her six amusing sisters, will the young mermaid be able to restore music, friendship and love to the kingdom?
