The Little Mermaid: Ariel’s Beginning takes place one year before Ariel meets Prince Eric. Young Ariel and her sisters share a love for music with their mother, Queen Athena. But when the Queen is captured by pirates, King Triton is heartbroken and bans music from Atlantica…FOREVER.
Refusing to grow up without music in her life, the adventurous Ariel longs for a place where she can share her true passion for music.
Together, she and Flounder discover an underground music club. Defying her father Ariel hangs out at the secret club by night and dodges her governess, Marina Del Rey, by day.
When King Triton finds out, he is furious and sends all lawbreakers to jail!
Luckily, with the help of best friends Sebastian and Flounder, Ariel is able to help her father realize that outlawing music was a mistake and that music is the true heart of the kingdom.
The film will be released on August 26, 2008 for a limited time only. And, get this: this is the LAST Disney animated sequel! Or so they say.
