Dark Horse announce a new “Disney The Little Mermaid” miniseries coming this October
Well isn’t this neat.
Ahead of SDCC, Dark Horse announces that they are expanding their line of Disney Princess comics with a brand new miniseries based on The Little Mermaid, due this October. While The Little Mermaid isn’t my favorite Disney movie (thought it’s certainly up there), I’m pretty sure it was the first film I ever saw in theaters, so it has a special place in my heart.
Plus “Kiss The Girl” is such a jam.
The three-issue miniseries will be written by Cecil Castellucci, illustrated by Zulema Scotto Lavina, and colored by Piky Hamilton, and will re-tell the story of the film entirely from Ariel’s perspective. Check out the details below, and rock out to some “Part of Your World” too. It is also a jam.
