The film is the story of Ariel, a beautiful and spirited young mermaid with a thirst for adventure. As the youngest and most defiant of King Triton’s daughters, she wants to know more about the world beyond the sea. While visiting the surface, she falls for the dashing Prince Eric. Though mermaids are forbidden to interact with humans, Ariel must follow her heart. This leads to a deal with the evil sea witch, Ursula, which gives her a chance to experience the world on land but ultimately places her life — and her father’s crown — in jeopardy.

The film stars singer and actress Halle Bailey as Ariel, Jonah Hauer-King (Prince Eric), Tony Award-winner Daveed Diggs (the voice of Sebastian), Awkwafina (the voice of Scuttle), Jacob Tremblay (the voice of Flounder), Noma Dumezweni (Queen Selina), Art Malik (Sir Grimsby), with Oscar winner Javier Bardem (King Triton), and two-time Academy Award nominee Melissa McCarthy (Ursula).
