Meet the Real Cast of The Little Mermaid!

Meet the Real Cast of The Little Mermaid!

November 6, 20147970Views74Comments

The 1989 animated Disney film The Little Mermaid made a big splash with kids and grownups alike, bringing the underwater world to life in a beautiful way. We here at Leisure Pro still think it’s an amazing movie, even more so since we became divers and got to see the cast in real life! You’ve seen the real life cast of Finding Nemo, and we are pleased to bring you a roundup of the real marine life cast of The Little Mermaid! How many of these characters have you seen on your dives? Let us know in the comments!
