The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea and The Little Mermaid: Ariel’s Beginning are included in this great 2 movie DVD collection. This set is available for the first time on Disney Blu-ray Combo Pack on November 19, 2013. (Yep! Just a few short days away!)
We got a sneak peek of this great collection, and my kids were absolutely thrilled. The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning, they got to see Ariel as a small child, and learned why music was once outlawed in their underwater kingdom.
In The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea, we got to meet Melody, the beautiful and strong-willed daughter of Ariel and Prince Eric! There is also a different villain, but I don't want to give too much away. You'll have to watch the movie to find out who it is!
