Based on the fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen, The Little Mermaid - 小美人魚 (Xiǎo Měirényú) tells the story of Ariel, a mermaid princess who dreams of becoming human. Ariel foolishly makes a bargain with an unscrupulous sea-witch, Ursula to transform into a human in exchange for her voice in order to meet a human prince. If only Ariel had met Aquaman.
