Make Some Fun

Is the brand new The Little Mermaid value seeing?

3 min read

The yr was 1989. 

I discovered I used to be pregnant from my finest pal and I advised my cousin and my cousin advised my aunt.  My aunt known as me and mentioned “Your mother is my finest pal. When you 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 believed “I can go take a pair hours and escape from every part” 


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

See my video review here

My son is now 33 years outdated and Patrick and I’ve been married for 33 years. 

Me with my son, DeAngelo.


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

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

My pal’s identify is Ursula, how superior is that?


Guess what?

I really like the brand new The Little Mermaid film too! 

My recommendation: Take a look at it as a complete new film. Don’t make any comparisons, it stands by itself. I’ve seen different evaluations complaining in regards to the the songs, lyrics, storylines, and so forth. I used to be completely tremendous 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 take pleasure in!

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 a giant fin to fill, and he or she delivered. I appreciated that there was extra depth to the connection between Eric and Ariel. 

I beloved 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 believed that was lovely. 

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 way in which she slithered round along with her tentacles. Such a very good Disney villain, they even gave her a little bit of a backstory. Harm folks damage folks, 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 wager you’ll agree!


At first you’ll discover your thoughts wants a giant 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 somewhat bizarre at first. 

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

My son and daughter-in-law had a child this yr! 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 time enjoyable

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

And in case you really feel like crafting, after all I’ve a craft! My pal Megan confirmed make a cute pair of DIY Mickey ears in honor of  The Little Mermaid!
