Is there anyone that doesn't love the tale of this free-spirited mermaid and the courage and determination that she shows while on her adventure saving her father's kingdom from the sneaky sea witch Ursula?
But while I doubt that there are too many folks unfamiliar with Ariel, something that may come as a surprise is that there is more to her story than what is shown in the movie. What happened before, during Ariel's childhood? And what happens after, when Ariel and Prince Eric are living happily ever after?
Those answers, and more, can be found now in the Blu-ray Combo Pack of the Disney 2-Movie Collection of The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning and The Little Mermaid II: Return To The Sea!
Providing double the adventure and even more memorable music, everyone's favorite characters from Disney's The Little Mermaid have returned with the same captivating musical style, unforgettably colorful characters and brilliant animation to Blu-ray and 2-disc DVD.
In The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea, the adventure continues 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 (running time 75 minutes), all the good creatures on the land and under the sea must join forces to show Melody that both of her worlds can live in perfect harmony.

In The Little Mermaid: Ariel’s Beginning, the extraordinary events that led up to Ariel's transformation into a princess are revealed!

But times were troubled in the underwater kingdom – and music was banned!
In this magical adventure (running time 77 minutes), Ariel, her fun-loving sisters, and her loyal friends Sebastian and Flounder strive to bring music and friendship back to Atlantica.

Other than Blu-ray Combo Pack that I was provided by Disney, I was not compensated or enticed to do this review in any way. This post is solely my honest opinion about this product.
