Ever since my trip to LA to the Disney #TheLitteMermaidEvent we have falled in love again with Ariel, The Little Mermaid. My girls were excited to know that Disney just released a 3-Disc Special Edition, about Ariel’s Undersea Adventure. The Little Mermaid: Areil’s Beginning and The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea.

The Little Mermaid: Ariel’s Beginning

One of Disney’s most beloved characters reveals the extraordinary events that led up to her transformation into a princess!  Long before Ariel walked on land and into Prince Eric’s heart, she was one of seven beloved daughters of powerful King Triton. But times were troubled in the underwater kingdom – and music was banned! In this magical adventure, Ariel, her fun-loving sisters, and her loyal friends Sebastian and Flounder strive to bring music and friendship back to Atlantica. Featuring breathtaking animation – and some thrilling surprises – The Little Mermaid: Ariel’s Beginning is an enchanting tale you’ll share with your family again and again!

The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea

All of your favorite characters from The Little Mermaid continue their adventures in this enchanting sequel to one of the most celebrated animated films of all time.  Even though her parents tell her merpeople and Atlantica are just “old fish tales,” Ariel’s daughter, Melody, dreams of being part of that magical world. In an unforgettable story that will take your breath away, all the good creatures on the land and under the sea must join forces to show Melody that both her worlds can live in perfect harmony.
