3.0 out of 5 stars Sequels on the mend, 22 Sep 2008
By 
This review is from: The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning [DVD] (DVD)
It's true... Disney has delivered a few sequels to their most famous movies which in someways offend the original...

Would be silly to say Ariel's Beginning matches the brilliance of the original movie but it is definitely an improvement on The Little Mermaid 2: Return To The Sea. The animation looks great and it is fantastic that almost all the original voice cast are back including Jodi Benson as Ariel.

It's a very interesting story with a little glimpse at Ariel's mother. When she is involved in a tragic accident King Triton is broken and Atlanta changes into a boring, military-like kingdom when he bans music. We learn a lot of the backstory of The Little Mermaid... why it is Ariel loves music... why Sebastian becomes the musical director of Atlanta... and how Ariel meets Flounder.

If you liked the other two mermaid films you'll definitely find something to like about this one. The extras which include a glimpse into the making of the Little Mermaid on Broadway are very interesting!

Ahhh not quite so, King Triton is a different voice actor to the original ;-)
