How to Watch The Little Mermaid on Streaming
The Little Mermaid will be available to stream on Disney+. So, in order to become part of Ariel’s world, you’ll have to subscribe to the streamer.
Disney+ offers two different subscription tiers for accessing the service on its own, as well as three bundle options. If you sign up for Disney+, you can choose between the Basic plan (with ads) for $7.99 per month, or the Premium plan for ad-free streaming and the option to download titles for on-the-go-viewing, for $10.99 per month.
Disney+ offers three bundle options to help you save if you’re already subscribing or want to subscribe to Hulu and ESPN+. For $9.99/month, you can subscribe to the Duo Basic plan which bundles Disney+ and Hulu (both with ads). Or, opt for the Trio Basic plan which is $12.99/month and bundles Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ with ads. Now, if you want to avoid ad interruptions during Hulu and Disney+ programs, Disney offers the Trio Premium bundle for $19.99/month; that plan also offers downloadable titles for on-the-go watching. (Keep in mind, even with Trio Premium, you’ll receive ads when streaming on ESPN+.)
Disney+ is also home to other series and movies you might like, including The Muppets Mayhem, Bluey and Peter Pan & Wendy, plus scores of TV shows and films from the worlds of Star Wars (including The Mandalorian and Andor), Marvel (WandaVision, Loki, She-Hulk), Disney (Encanto, Moana and Frozen), Pixar (Cars, Turning Red and Lightyear) and National Geographic.
As a Disney Bundle subscriber, you also gain access to tons of original content from Hulu including Only Murders in the Building, The Kardashians, The Handmaid’s Tale, Fleishman Is in Trouble and more. Hulu also streams shows like Abbott Elementary and 9-1-1 the day after they air, as well as offers a library filled with older titles like Killing Eve and How I Met Your Mother.
What Is The Little Mermaid About?
The film tells “the beloved story of Ariel, a beautiful and spirited young mermaid with a thirst for adventure,” according to the official synopsis. “The youngest of King Triton’s daughters and the most defiant, Ariel longs to find out more about the world beyond the sea and, while visiting the surface, falls for the dashing Prince Eric. While mermaids are forbidden from interacting with humans, Ariel must follow her heart. She makes a deal 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.”
