Is the brand new The Little Mermaid price seeing?

The 12 months was 1989. 

I discovered I used to be pregnant from my greatest good friend and I advised my cousin and my cousin advised my aunt.  My aunt referred to as me and stated “Your mother is my greatest good friend. If you happen to don’t inform her within the subsequent 24 hours I’m gonna inform her.”

I didn’t know what was going to occur. I made a decision to go see The Little Mermaid.  I assumed “I can go take a pair hours and escape from all the things” 


The film was simply what I would like to appease my soul on the time. I laughed and cried, particularly about Ariel having to confront her dad. It hit my coronary heart exhausting! I liked the character of Sebastian and even determined to call the infant after him (my husband later vetoed that).

The film brings up so many recollections and feelings. So when the brand new model was introduced, I knew I wished to see it. 

I went to the press screening with my good friend, Ursula (!!!).

My good friend’s identify is Ursula, how superior is that?


Guess what?

I like the brand new The Little Mermaid film too! 

My recommendation: Have a look at it as an entire new film. Don’t make any comparisons, it stands by itself. I’ve seen different critiques complaining in regards to the the songs, lyrics, storylines, and many others. I used to be completely fantastic with this new adaptation. I didn’t desire a play-by-play dupe. 

Lin Manuel Miranda wrote two new songs for this movie and whereas they weren’t my favorites, they have been entertaining to look at.

Comparability is the thief of pleasure, bear in mind?

We now have two variations of The Little Mermaid to get pleasure from!

On the screening, prepared for the film to start out.


You possibly can see and really feel the love that went into this film particularly, Halle Bailey. She knew she had an enormous fin to fill, and she or he delivered. I appreciated that there was extra depth to the connection between Eric and Ariel. 

I liked the beefed up ending of it, no spoilers.

The forged 

The forged jogged my memory of Bridgerton – there have been a number of ethnicities normalized inside the movie. The characters and the story have been the anchors, and I assumed that was stunning. 

There’s even a Latina mermaid named  Perla!

You’ll hear a few new songs, even Eric has a solo quantity! 

Melissa McCarthy was an ideal Ursula –  the best way she slithered round together with her tentacles. Such an excellent Disney villain, they even gave her a little bit of a backstory. Damage individuals damage individuals, proper? That’s all I’ll say about that. 

Javier Bardem. YES. I felt so impressed with the casting. The actor who performs Eric jogs my memory of a younger Ryan Gosling. I guess you’ll agree!


At first you’ll discover your thoughts wants an enormous of adjusting to this new “world.” We’re used to seeing the animated model of those beloved characters, after which to see this new CGI model is slightly bizarre at first. 

Do I really feel emotional in regards to the new The Little Mermaid? Nicely, sure however for various causes.

My son and daughter-in-law had a child this 12 months! So for the primary The Little Mermaid, I discovered I used to be going to be a mother. Now the brand new model, I’m a grandma! 

Summer season enjoyable

This film is ideal for summertime, the entire household will get pleasure from it. There are some epic motion elements, in case you convey younger children. Simply remember they may squirm. 

And in case you really feel like crafting, in fact I’ve a craft! My good friend Megan confirmed how one can make a cute pair of DIY Mickey ears in honor of  The Little Mermaid!
