The Little Mermaid JR takes place in a magical kingdom
beneath the sea, where a beautiful young mermaid named Ariel longs
to leave her ocean home to live in the world above. But first,
she’ll have to defy her father, the king of the sea, escape the
clutches of an evil sea witch and convince a prince that she’s the
girl with the perfect voice.
