This article is about the Disney Jr. show. For articles that share the same name, see Ariel.

Ariel is an animated preschool series that premiered on June 27, 2024 on Disney Jr. Following Ariel's childhood adventures in Atlantica, the series serves as a reimagining of The Little Mermaid franchise with alternate iterations of its characters and world. Prior to its premiere, a series of shorts titled Ariel's Mermaid Tales premiered from June 4 to June 14, 2024.


Set in the fantastical Caribbean-inspired underwater kingdom of Atlantica, the series follows an 8-year-old Ariel as she embarks on fun-filled, action-packed mermaid adventures with her friends. Driven by a deep and unending curiosity about the world around her, Ariel discovers land treasures, like a big floppy hat, squeaky rubber ducky, and whisk, that she collects and keeps safe in her crystal cavern. Sometimes, Ariel uses the treasures to help solve problems.

With each discovery, Ariel is filled with joy, and her mermaid tail, which changes colors depending on her emotions, lights up and shimmers. Full of charm, big ideas and a powerful voice, "Disney Junior's Ariel" is coming into her own, learning how to discover and appreciate the world around her and use her voice to inspire others.



On June 13, 2023, Disney announced that they had given the green light to an animated series for preschoolers with Disney Jr.'s Ariel.

Dr. Patricia Saunders, professor of English and hemispheric Caribbean studies and director of graduate studies at the University of Miami and author of two books, serves as cultural consultant on the series.[1]

Sean Skeete, chair of Berklee College of Music's ensemble department, is the Caribbean music consultant.[1]

The show is planned for 120 episodes.[2]
