Smiling excited, the young princess from a underwater kingdom leans her small body, half human, half fish, over a base of a sea rock from her special place, where she keeps her vast treasure, a collection of human objects, antiques, and artifacts, representing special memories from her adventures and new discoveries from ship wreckages, caves, and even from above surface. A collection composed of gadgets, gizmos, whosits, whatsits, and thingamabobs as she calls them, but that are actually chests, silverware on a candelabrum, pottery, bottles, and much more, carefully stored in Ariel's Secret Grotto. Expanding their collection that celebrates Disney's 100th anniversary, Iron Studios proudly presents The Little Mermaid - Disney Classics 100 Years - Art Scale 1:10 Statue with Ariel over a base with a sea rock and some of the items from her treasure.
Released in 1989, The Little Mermaid is the 28th feature film from Disney Animation, vaguely based on the fairy tale of the same name by Hans Christian Andersen, that introduces Princess Ariel as the protagonist, a young, adventurous, and stubborn mermaid from the kingdom of Atlantica. Her curiosity and love for adventure sometimes puts her in trouble, however, Ariel overcomes whatever challenge she faces. Her best friends are a fish called Flounder, and a crab called Sebastian.
With bright red hair, and an emerald-green tail, Ariel is unhappy with her underwater life, but is fascinated by the human world. Ignoring the advice of her father, King Triton, she goes to the surface of the ocean where she falls in love with Prince Eric the moment that she sees him. When saves him from a shipwreck, he gets charmed by her voice and promises to find the girl that he heard singing and that saved his life even though he didn't meet Ariel yet. Seeking for a way of joining Eric in his world, Ariel searches for Ursula, the Sea Witch, that wishes to use the princess to obtain Triton's magic trident. In exchange for her voice, Ariel is transformed by Ursula into a human for three days. The mermaid must receive the true love kiss from Eric to remain a human, or she'll become a mermaid once more, and then she'll belong to the witch.
