Then, in The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning, we go back in time, before the events of The Little Mermaid. After a traumatic event has a profound effect on King Triton, all music is banned from the underwater kingdom of Atlantica. All that changes, though, when his youngest daughter Ariel attempts to challenge the new law.
