The Little Mermaid Hits Manila This November!

November 4, 2011

My first experience with The Little Mermaid onscreen was from a betamax copy that my mom rented from the local bootleg movie rental shop. I absolutely loved it. Here’s a clip.


Then Disney came out with their full-animated feature and I swear it changed the animation landscape altogether. More than the story, the music was captivating (sue me but I like the version where she dies). Did you guys know that I named Basti after Sebastian the crab? Yep, that I did. And up to this day, I still sing “Part of Your World” in the shower.

So, this coming musical is exciting for me:

One of my closest friends in the world, Pia, is in charge of the matinee shows for November 26 and November 27. Seems like a good time to bring your Ariel-wannabee to a play, right? I’m watching on the 27th. If you go to the same show, I hope to meet you!

    I also like original version where she dies better!!! I has a Hans Christian Andersen book and The Little Mermaid was my favorite story in it. I felt cheated when Disney changed the story.

      I know what you mean! I think I’ll make Basti watch the original first so he won’t be as heartbroken. At least he knows she’s supposed to die. But didn’t.
