#28: The Little Mermaid (1989) CLEAN
Jeff and TC are back again in the same room to talk about the start of the new Disney renaissance with “The Little Mermaid” from 1989. Oh, the feels…all the feels…and the music! Gahhh!
In Disney's beguiling animated romp, rebellious 16-year-old mermaid Ariel (Jodi Benson) is fascinated with life on land. On one of her visits to the surface, which are forbidden by her controlling father, King Triton, she falls for a human prince. Determined to be with her new love, Ariel makes a dangerous deal with the sea witch Ursula (Pat Carroll) to become human for three days. But when plans go awry for the star-crossed lovers, the king must make the ultimate sacrifice for his daughter.
