Ariel (The Little Mermaid)

Ariel is a fictional character and the lead protagonist of Walt Disney Pictures' twenty-eighth animated film The Little Mermaid (1989). She subsequently appears in the film's prequel television seriesdirect-to-video sequel The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea (where her daughter takes over as the protagonist, while Ariel is a secondary character instead) and direct-to-video prequel The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning
Ariel is voiced by Jodi Benson in all animated appearances and merchandise. 
She is the fourth Disney Princess and the only one to become a mother.
Ariel has a very distinctive appearance, with her long, flowing red hair, blueeyes, greenish-blue tail, and a purple seashell bikini top.
 In the films and television series she is the youngest daughter of King Triton and Queen Athena.
 She is often rebellious, and in the first film longs to be a part of the human world.
 She marries Prince Eric, whom she rescued from a shipwreck, and together they have a daughter, Melody.
The character is based on the protagonist of Hans Christian Andersen's "The Little Mermaid" story, but was developed into a different personality for the 1989 animated film adaptation. Ariel has received a mixed reception from critics; some publications such as Time criticize her for being too devoted to her man whereas others, such as Empire, praise the character for her rebellious personality, a departure from previous Disney Princesses.
