Appearances[]

The Little Mermaid[]

In the film, Carlotta is Prince Eric's maid and one of his most loyal friends. When Eric brings Ariel into his castle, she gives her a bath and has her dress washed for her. Then she dresses her up all nice and takes her to the dining room where she will eat with Eric and Grimsby.

When Ariel takes Grimsby's pipe and blows its contents in his face, both Eric and Carlotta laugh about it, and Carlotta tells Eric that's the first time she's seen him smile in weeks. Grimsby then asks her what's for dinner to which she answers that he's going to love it because Chef Louis has been making them stuffed crab. When they hear a noise from the kitchen, Carlotta decides to go and see what Chef Louis is up to.

When she reaches the kitchen, she finds him throwing stuff around and making a mess. She furiously asks him what he's doing, to which he apologizes to her for making such a mess. She then takes the food back to the table for Eric, Grimsby, and Ariel. The next day she and Grimsby are seen waving goodbye to Eric and Ariel as they leave to take a tour of the kingdom. She is finally seen again at the end of the film at Ariel and Eric's wedding, to where she becomes overly emotional and cries in Grimsby's tie.

The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea[]

Carlotta appears again in the sequel but has a smaller role than in the previous film. She is first seen singing "Down to the Sea" and celebrating the arrival of Melody. Then, when the party gets interrupted by Ursula's sister, Morgana, she moves away from her, frightened.

Carlotta is seen 12 years later cleaning up for Melody's twelfth birthday party. When Ariel asks her if she's seen Melody, she replies, "Not since this morning, Your Majesty". When Chef Louis ruins Melody's party by chasing after Sebastian and making everyone laugh, Carlotta splashes him with a bucket of water and says, "Oh, Louie!"

At the end after Morgana's defeat, Carlotta is seen celebrating along with the humans and merfolk by singing "Here on the Land and Sea". She then picks up Chef Louis and dances with him.

The Little Mermaid (2023)[]

Lashana, one of the maids in Eric's castle who is based on Carlotta, appears in the 2023 live-action remake of The Little Mermaid, played by Martina Laird.

Lashana first appears during the musical number "For the First Time" when a fisherman named "Joshua" tries to get her attention as he tells her to put Ariel in a safe place, which Joshua thinks that Ariel will survive in the castle. She and Joshua take Ariel upstairs to help her feel comfortable just before another servant named "Rosa" enters while trying to get Ariel cleaned up and later dressing her up. The next day, Lashana talks to Grimsby telling him if he would get into trouble with Queen Selina for sparing a carriage to Eric after Selina told Eric not to go on any more voyages until he feels better in the past day.

On the third day, Ariel rushes past Lashana while finding Grimsby and Queen Selina about Eric who was looking for Ariel. During the wedding, she is seen holding Eric's pet dog Max who sees Scuttle attempting to remove the shell necklace from Vanessa's neck which Lashana reacts in shock just before Ariel snatches the necklace from Vanessa who then reveals to be Ursula in disguise upon smashing the necklace. As Ursula reveals her true form, Lashana became aware that Ursula revealed her true form, causing her and the surviving attendees to retreat when she reveals herself as a sea monster.

At the end of the film, Lashana is seen approaching Eric worried that she was looking for him all along, alongside Queen Selina, Grimsby, and Rosa just before the Queen goes into a discussion with Eric. During the wedding between Eric and Ariel, Lashana later became aware of Ariel and Eric bidding a farewell to the castle servants as they both travel the world together via boat, alongside the residents of the ocean.

Trivia[]

  • On Carlotta's original design cell (as revealed in the gallery below) her dress was originally green instead of maroon like we see in the final film and subsequent appearances.
  • Carlotta's maid outfit is exactly the same as Cinderella's, the only difference being the sleeves being form-fitting and with cuffs at the end.
