In the Disney version, the youngest of King Triton’s daughters, and the most defiant, Ariel, longs to discover more about the world beyond the sea and falls for the dashing Prince Eric while visiting the surface. But, while mermaids are forbidden to interact with humans, Ariel must follow her heart. So she deals with the evil sea witch, Ursula, which gives her a chance to experience life on land, but ultimately places her life – and her father’s crown – in jeopardy.

Tickets for The Little Mermaid are now available for advance selling at SM Cinema. Regular screening starts on May 24, 2023. Watch the Little Mermaid at SM City Cebu.
