Plot

The Little Mermaid (1992 film) The Little Mermaid 1992

Lena, a mermaid princess, is the sea king's daughter who dreams of someday marrying a wonderful human prince. After disobeying her father, Lena visits the sea surface and falls in love with Prince Stefan. Soon after, the ship that sails the Prince Stefan sinks until Lena manages to save his life and bring him to a beach near the school where he studied. Lena comes to the aid of the sea witch Cassandra and exchanges her beautiful voice for legs to walk on land and meet her prince. Cassandra gives Lena what she asks for with the warning that if Lena fails to win the prince's heart, she will become sea foam for the rest of her life. Lena drinks the potion, loses her voice, and goes to the surface. Prince Stefan takes a liking to Lena, as he feels he should show her the same kindness that the person who had saved him from the wreck showed him. Over time, Stefan falls in love with Lena and wants to marry her, but then comes Anna, the princess who earlier found Stephan and his loyal steward Cosgrove on the beach and brought them to the medical care they needed. Stephan agrees to marry Anna, but Anna is in love with Maxwell. Vink, the dolphin pet friend of Lena, intervenes and tells the king of the sea what happened. His intervention fixes things, Anna's father King Malcolm agrees to make Maxwell his son-in-law, and Lena finally marries Stephan.

  • Lena - The heroine of the story, Lena is a carefree, beautiful young mermaid princess living with her father, the Sea-King and her sisters in their grand underwater palace. Lena has a loyal companion, a dolphin named Vink, and it is him to whom she tells about her longing to find the perfect prince, who will be the love of her life. Lena falls in such a deep love for Prince Stephan that she willingly sacrifices her beautiful voice.
  • Cassandra - Cassandra is the evil Sea-witch dreaded by the mermaids. The Sea-King has forbidden any of his daughters to have anything to do with her. She has two manta-rays minions named Dreyzock and Jhunika. When Cassandra finds out that Lena has fallen in love with a human prince, she tricks her into trading her beautiful voice for human legs, warning her that if Prince Stephan were to marry someone else, she would then turn into seafoam for all eternity.
  • Vink (Voiced by Jeff Bennett) - A dolphin that is Lena's faithful royal pet. As much as he cares for Lena, he sometimes doesn't feel up to joining her in all of her wild adventures. When he finds out that Lena's life may be in danger, he quickly comes to her rescue and immediately notifies the Sea-King about Cassandra's doing.
  • Prince Stephan - The handsome human prince with whom Lena falls in love. He has a faithful servant and companion named Cosgrove.
