'The Little Mermaid' is a beautiful pearl of a movie inside a sturdy shell, spotting some surfaced cracks that show slight imperfection and a little fragileness a perfect fit for Disney, since they often follow their formulas too perfectly or operate a bit off course.
Halfway through, the first film I ever saw at the cinema aged 4 (at the Unit 4 in Wigan which is now a carpet shop, shout out to my local there!) And still my undisputed favourite ever Disney film, and the start of the greatest era to be a kid as those late 80s-mid 90s were a truly glorious time to be under 10.
Disney Studios initiated a more sophisticated form of animated entertainment with the release of 1989's The Little Mermaid, a captivating and charming story that was the first time that Disney attempted to meld the animated comedy, the love story, and the Broadway musical to maximum effect, a groundbreaking piece of cinema that I suspect was the genesis of Pixar Animation.
