Overview
All the music, fun and excitement under the sea resurface in this magical, DVD edition of Disney's 28th animated masterpiece. Awash with breathtaking animation, unforgettably colorful characters and two Academy Awards®* for score and song, "Under the Sea," 'The Little Mermaid' is one of Disney's most cherished films.

Ariel, the fun-loving and mischievous mermaid, is enchanted with all things human. Disregarding her father's order to stay away from the world above the sea, she swims to the surface and, in a raging storm, rescues the prince of her dreams. Determined to be human, she strikes a bargain with the devious seawitch, Ursula, and trades her fins and beautiful voice for legs. With her best friend, the adorable and chatty Flounder, and her reluctant chaperone Sebastian, the hilarious, reggae-singing Caribbean crab, at her side, Ariel must win the prince's love and save her father's kingdom — all in a heart-pounding race against time!

*1989, Best Original Score, Alan Menken. Best Song, "Under The Sea," Alan Menken & Howard Ashman
