DESCRIPTION: Disney s amazing undersea classic lives on in an all-new story bursting with the same captivating music style, unforgettably colorful characters and brilliant animation that made the original film an Academy Award®-winning favorite.
After rejoicing over the birth of their daughter Melody, Ariel and Eric must face a new threat from Ursula s revengeful sibling Morgana, a threat that forces them to hide Melody s true mermaid heritage. Melody, a young princess curious about her roots, ultimately ventures into the sea against her parents wishes. There she meets new friends and in her dream to become a mermaid becomes a pawn in Morgana s plot to gain control of the Seven Seas. Ariel must reunite with her childhood friends Sebastian, Flounder and Scuttle to rescue her daughter and restore harmony to her family.
An all-star cast returns, including Jodi Benson (Ariel) and Samuel E. Wright (Sebastian) for a remarkable adventure teeming with surprises, a new deleted song and all-new game.
Ariel and her husband, Prince Eric, have a little problem with their daughter, Melody, in the sequel to Disney's landmark The Little Mermaid. Melody is threatened by Morgana, the evil sister of the sea witch Ursula (both voiced by Pat Carroll). Before you can say "Briar Rose," Melody's parents decide to keep their daughter's roots a secret, forbidding her to learn about the ocean while Morgana is around. Now the budding teenager secretly frolics in the sea with Ariel's old friends, Sebastian and Scuttle. When she learns the truth from Morgana, Melody becomes an unknowing pawn in her scheme--and Mom has to take to the sea again to help.
As with Disney's other made-for-video sequels, The Little Mermaid II looks and sounds wonderful (and reunites much of the same vocal talent). Four- to nine-year-olds who grew up with the original will certainly enjoy seeing the friends again. A new set of artists has come up with four catchy tunes and some fun new characters, including Tip and Dash, a pensive penguin and his blubbery walrus friend. Yet, where Beauty and the Beast had a deliberate Christmas-themed sequel, and Pocahontas told the tale of her historical trip to England, the plot here is very forced. It is pretty much a rehash of the first film with different characters. Tip and Dash are a reincarnation of Timon and Pumbaa, and Morgana is exactly like her sister, except thinner. Besides the stellar music, this unneeded sequel also misses another important aspect of the original--heart. --Doug Thomas

But The Little Mermaid II was different. This was a very cute story that is a continuation of the first movie. Eric and Ariel are all grown up and have a daughter of their own. She struggles in many ways the same way her mother did in the first with wanting freedom and exploring but wanting to go to the ocean.
The graphics are very well done and the music is very cute. The story line is a well written Disney storyline. We all sat and watched it together and my son, when it was over, said "that was great." I am glad we went ahead and bought this on Amazon so that my kids can watch it whenever they want. I love to see movies that continue the story so we get to know what became of Eric and Ariel here!
Such a lovely continuation to The Little Mermaid movie.
Seen it too many times to count but it is a favorite of my 10 year old daughters. Now she is getting my two year old loving it.
I love have all of our videos on Amazon video streaming with my Fire Stick. It is a life changer!

I don't know why people are bashing on the plot of the movie. It's everything you would expect from a Disney movie- kind of predictable with a feel-good ending. It's not as good as the first one, but it's still worth watching.
