THE LITTLE MERMAID
1989, Walt Disney Pictures, 83 min, Dir: Ron Clements, John Musker

Headstrong young mermaid Ariel (beautifully designed by animating legend Glen Keane) can't contain her interest in the mortal world above the waves, or her boredom with her everyday life under the sea. Entering into a risky bargain with Ursula the Sea Witch (who rivals SLEEPING BEAUTY's Maleficent as the ultimate female Disney villain), Ariel trades her lovely voice for legs in the hopes of nabbing her land-bound love, Prince Eric. With original score by Alan Menken including the classic songs "Under the Sea," "Kiss the Girl" and "Poor Unfortunate Souls."
