Is Ariel an official Disney Princess?
Yes. At this time Ariel is one of the 12 official Disney Princesses (as of March 2021).
Of all the Disney Princess films, The Little Mermaid is the 4th oldest Disney Princess: only the movies of Snow White, Cinderella, and Aurora (from Sleeping Beauty) were made before the Little Mermaid.
The release of The Little Mermaid in 1989 is now widely regarded as the beginning of the “Disney Renaissance.” This period in Disney Animation history from 1989-1999 is when Disney had a string of massive animated hits including Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and Lion King. It was called a Renaissance because before this, Disney animation was in a dry spell following Walt Disney’s death in 1966. Some people call this Disney era, from about 1970-1988 the Bronze Age or the Dark Age of Disney animation.
And then a spunky red-haired mermaid named Ariel roused the animators from their funk.
If you want to watch Little Mermaid and other Disney animated films they are available to watch on the Disney streaming service called “Disney +”
