The Little Mermaid Was Mer-mazing!

They say there’s plenty of fish in the sea but I’m a mermaid! 🤪🧜🏻‍♀️

The Little Mermaid 2023 Review

I can’t help it, every new Disney movie hits me so hard, the fondest memories of my youth and even recent memories such as my wedding, but The Little Mermaid has me diving to even greater depths for it was the first Disney movie I ever saw in the cinema!

My amazing mummy was trying her best to afford me an amazing life and while she couldn’t afford English classes, she could afford tickets to Disney movies with the hope that I’d learn a word or two!

I think it worked, mommy!

It became our tradition and each new Disney release would be such a special mother and daughter moment.

With the remake of The Little Mermaid, expectations were high but any doubts I might have had were immediately washed away!

Halle Bailey is here to usher in the Little Mermaid to a Whole New World!

The Little Mermaid 2023 Review Halle Bailey

Each Disney Princess has a trait, for Beauty and the Beast's Belle, it was her intelligence and for Ariel, it’s her voice! Which she sacrifices for a chance to be human!

So it made sense that Disney cast someone who has the gills for the job and they hit it out of the ocean!

Halle Bailey sounds just like the Ariel from my youth, whether talking and especially when singing! I was blown away! And she’s gorgeous to boot!

I also loved how they did away with the whole love at first sight cliche and added some depth to her connection to Prince Eric and now, Sebastian the crab’s Caribbean accent also makes a lot more sense!

What can I say, as a fellow mermaid, I love depth and hate shallow!

We saw the movie at GV Gold Class where they even gave us a pair of stunning broken-glass wave designed crystal glasses.

As you can tell, I can go on and on!

It’s such a fantastic movie that I’m already eyeing up IMAX tickets to jump into it again!

Thank you Disney for all the childhood and now adulthood memories!

And thank you mummy, you’re the best! ❤️

Psst! Here's my attempt at the legendary Little Mermaid hair flip.

Ouch.. my neck hurts. Never mind, I'll leave it to Ariel to do this. 😅
