Disclosure: I attended a special event celebrating the Diamond Edition release of The Little Mermaid, and was provided with an expense-paid trip by Disney. The event also included the Disney Planes premiere (so much fun!) and a meeting with Rosebud the Super Buddy (aww!)
Have I got a treat for you! During the celebration I recently attended of The Little Mermaid, I had the pleasure of meeting Jodi Benson, the voice of Ariel, watching a panel discussion, and participating in a special round table Q&A interview with her. The experience was very moving and fun, and I wanted to share with you a highlight from the adventure.
Jodi Benson the voice of Ariel sang Part of Your World from The Little Mermaid for us, so I put together this fun little movie so that you can enjoy it too!
Jodi Benson recently attended a special screening of The Little Mermaid at the Walter Reede Theater in New York to celebrate the Diamond Edition release of The Little Mermaid on Blu Ray. Samuel Wright (the voice of Sebastian) and The Little Mermaid director Ron Clements were also on hand to celebrate and relive the film’s high points. The event even had a blue carpet instead of a red one, appropriate for the Under the Sea motif. Jodi performed at the event.
Here are some beautiful photos from the event. I particularly love Jodi Benson’s mermaid dress. Her look is so timeless, and time seems not to pass for her.
Jodi Benson is inspiring and continues to work tirelessly on all kinds of amazing projects, including as the voice of Barbie in the Toy Story franchise (more info on the latest installment Toy Story of Terror here) and her most important job of all, mom.
Stay tuned for some more exciting posts about Jodi Benson the voice of Ariel, coming soon!
