The Little Mermaid was released thirty years ago on Friday, 17 November 1989, by Walt Disney Animation Studios (known as Walt Disney Feature Animation at the time) as its 28th full-length animated feature. It was a critical and commercial success, winning two Academy Awards and becoming the highest grossing animated film in history up to that point.
Spawning a TV series, two animated sequels, a Broadway show, theme park dark rides, live concerts, and more, The Little Mermaid also revived Disney’s corporate fortunes and ushered in what is now referred to as the Disney Renaissance. You’re welcome, all you Star Wars and Marvel nerds. :p
I think my love for Ariel is obvious to anyone who has spent any time with me or on this blog. I mean, you’ve seen my mascot, right? ^^;
A lot has changed since I met Ariel, but she’s still Waifu #1! I thought about doing a countdown of posts leading to the big anniversary but I got lazy and there’s a tag for that anyway. 😉 I hope you’ll poke around and revisit my adventures with everyone’s favorite red-headed mermaid. ❤
Otherwise, please follow the blog (by clicking the "Resistance is Futile" button) or Like any of my Pages (jimsha, The Vault/Beginning Story, and agc pictures) on Facebook to be instantly notified of new adventures. See you again soon!
