Prequel to the popular Disney film set long before Ariel gave up her mermaid existence to live happily ever after with Prince Eric. The film finds Ariel (voice of Jodi Benson) torn between her love of music and her family duty. With the help of her friends, Sebastian (Samuel E. Wright) and Flounder (voice of Parker Goris), and her six sisters, Ariel sets about to try and restore music, friendship and love to the Kingdom of Atlantica.
Set several years after The Little Mermaid, Ariel and Prince Eric are happily married with a daughter, Melody. In order to protect Melody from the Sea Witch, Morgana, they have not told her about her mermaid heritage. Melody is curious and ventures into the sea, where she meets new friends. But will she become a pawn in Morgana's quest to take control of the ocean from King Triton?

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!
well its not! It's brilliantly animated, the plots great and moves fast, it's moving (the openening 10 mins when we learn the fate of Ariels mother is pretty grown up for "just a disney sequell").
Give it a go, you wont regret it!
Ten years later, Triton's daughters live under a strict routine maintained by their governess, Marina Del Rey and her assistant Benjamin. Marina hates her job and longs to be Triton's attaché, a job currently filled by Sebastian the crab. Ariel is frustrated by their current lifestyle, which brings her into conflict with Triton. One day, Ariel encounters Flounder, a fish, whom she later follows to an underground music club. She is overjoyed by the presence of music, and is shocked when she sees Sebastian performing there. When her presence is revealed, the entire band stops playing and hides, believing Ariel will tell her father about them. Ariel sings a song explaining her love of music and the remembrance of her mother and she joins the club with an oath.
Ariel returns to the palace, and her sisters confront her over her disappearance. She explains where she was, and the following night all seven sisters go to the club to have fun. Marina secretly finds them, and she later reports their activities to Triton. Sebastian, Flounder and the band are sent to jail, while Marina gets the job she wants.
Ariel sneaks into the prison and frees the jailbirds. Sebastian leads them to a deserted place far from the palace where Ariel finds the music box.Read more ›
Overall it's a triumph! Introduce The Little Mermaid : Ariel's beginning to your family today!
I give the DVD 5 stars!
This isn't really The Little Mermaid 3 but number one and is more a pre-sequel than a sequel.
This film blends all fun and music that made the first a huge hit the songs are brand new but super.
Disney have delivered another great musical cartoon if enjoyed the other Little Mermaid films or TV series then this is for you all three films can bought as a gift set for Chirstmas and if needed before then the new 5 pound supersaver deal this does exceed and more than meet that price.
This is must for Little Mermaid fans and Disney fans so if you like great animation and great toe-tapping songs buy this and get both.
