Although it has been 20 years since the initial release of Walt Disney’s animated film “The Little Mermaid,” Ariel costumes are still more popular than ever. This is in part because this family classic has been introduced to new generations over and over again.
“The Little Mermaid” first thrilled audiences in 1989, proving to be an instant box-office success. Eight years later it was re-released for three weeks straight. Then in 2007, “The Little Mermaid” was adapted into a successful Broadway musical. After a 20-month run, “The Little Mermaid” is set to perform its last show on Broadway August 30, according to the Associated Press. However, the fairytale doesn’t end there. “The Little Mermaid” musical is scheduled to go on tour in the United States in fall of 2010 and will continue to tour abroad after that, keeping the characters of Princess Ariel, Prince Eric, Ursula, and King Triton alive and well.
