I received a copy of The Little Mermaid 2 and Ariel’s Beginning 2-Movie Collection in order to facilitate my review. No additional compensation was received and all thoughts and words are my own.
The Little Mermaid has always been one of my favorite Disney movies. The songs, the colors, the under the sea adventure, the romance – it’s the whole package. I did always wonder, though, about the origins of the kingdom of Atlantica and what Ariel and all her siblings were like when they were little.
I also wondered about what happened with Ariel and Eric after they were married. Was it truly a happily ever after story? Did Ariel regret giving up her fins and family for a set of legs and love?
To answer those questions, a few years ago Disney released both Ariel’s Beginning and The Little Mermaid 2. I didn’t have the chance at the time to pick up either copy but now that both are available in one collection, I knew it was time to add them to my library. Especially because Bubbles enjoys The Little Mermaid, also, and these would be something we could watch together.
