Journey “under the sea” with Ariel and her aquatic friends. Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved stories, Disney’s “The Little Mermaid Jr.” is an enchanting look at the sacrifices we all make for love and acceptance.

In a magical underwater kingdom, a young mermaid, Ariel (Angela Cordischi), longs to leave her ocean home &tstr; and her fins &tstr; behind and live in the world above. But first, she’ll have to defy her father, King Triton (Stirling McFarlane), make a deal with the evil sea witch, Ursula (Abbie Bender), while convincing Prince Eric (Ethan Sauder) that she’s the girl with the enchanting voice he’s been seeking. Ariel will need the help of her friends Sebastian (Elena Smith), Flounder (Piper Sobon), and Scuttle (Zoe Buchanan) along the way.
