10 September 2017

Daring to Dream: Descendants 2 aired a while back, and since it features a TLM-related character (Uma, the daughter of Ursula), I've made a page for the movie, plus added the lyrics for the film's songs that feature Uma, i.e. What's My Name, It's Goin' Down, Kiss the Girl, and Poor Unfortunate Souls. Over in the gallery I've added scans for two books ("Ariel Makes Waves" and "Ariel is Fearless"), a few more Disney Princess colouring pages, the colouring book Undersea ABC, and two colouring/activity books. While over in the ever-expanding section of other mermaids, I've added pages for Little Bear, The Lure, and Voltron: Legendary Defender.

2 July 2017

Daring to Dream: Ariel made another appearance on the ABC television show Once Upon a Time, so I've added a synopsis and screencaps to that section. The gallery has been updated with the final page for the Grolier Treasure Chest series ("Scuttle's Final Flight", "A Slippery Deck", "An Undersea Wish" and "Whistles and Doubloons"), one new Disney Princess comic, one new Disney Princess graphic, one new Disney Princess story, a couple of new activity pages, the colouring pages from a 1989 Paint with Water colouring book, and three excerpted pages from the A Celebration of the World of Disney. To the misc section, I've added a page for the 2016 live-action Little Mermaid, and the mermaid of Bewitched.

19 March 2017

Daring to Dream: It's not much, but I've made a page for Little Mermaid's Island, the Jim Henson show that only had two non-aired episodes. I've added more stuff to the gallery, namely page 5 of scans from the Grolier Treasure Chest series ("How Does Your Garden Grow?", "The Magic Melody", "Paradise Island" and "Scared Silly"), excerpts from the Dear Princess book, two Disney Princess stories, two Disney Princess graphics, a couple of activity pages, and a couple of colouring pages. In the music section, I've added a lising for the Songs and Story album, along with audio samples for its covers for Part of Your World and Beyond My Wildest Dreams, and of Sierra Boggess's cabaret rendition of Part of Your World from her album Awakening: Live at 54 Below. Over in the misc section, the Annie Leibovitz photo page now includes the Queen Latifah-as-Ursula photo, there's a page for an anime adaptation of TLM called The Mermaid Princess, and a page for the mermaids of Jake and the Neverland Pirates.

The Waterfalls: The gallery has been updated with scans from two books ("Meet the Characters" and "Pocahontas and the Baby Eagle") and three more activity pages. Over on the soundtrack page I've added listings and audio samples for the "On the Record" covers of "Colours of the Wind/Just Around the Riverbend" and "If I Never Knew You", plus Tori Kelly's cover of "Colours of the Wind" from "We Love Disney". I've also made a page in the misc section for the Annie Leibovitz Disney Dreams Portrait with Jessica Biel.

13 November 2016

Daring to Dream: I've put up page four of scans from the Grolier Treasure Chest series ("Flounder's Folly, "Flounder, My Hero", "The Good Sport", and "Her Majesty, Ariel"), plus scans from a Short Stories book and a few more colouring pages. On the movie page I added a listings of all the extras in the Platinum and Diamond Edition DVD/Blu-Rays, and on the videos page I added a link for the Sebastian's Party Gras! concert that was released on video in 1992 (I didn't upload that, just to be clear!). Over in the Other Mermaids section, I've added pages for Ever After High and Rosario + Vampire.
I did a bunch of additions and clean-up on the music page. The original soundtrack and the Legacy Collection soundtrack now have info on the instrumental tracks in their sections, and that info has also been separated onto its own instrumentals page for quick reference. I previously forgot to add the lyrics and audio samples for the demo tracks of the Legacy Collection album, so I've done that, namely for Fathoms Below, The Daughters of Triton, and Part of Your World. For Ursula's stage musical song Daddy's Little Angel, I've added audio samples from the Dutch, Japanese and Russian recordings, seeing as the song has yet to be included on an English-language recording. I've also added listings for some albums I missed before, i.e. the 10th Anniversary album rerelease (including lyrics + audio sample of Shaggy's Under the Sea cover), the Shell We Dance? compilation album, and On the Record (including its covers of Under the Sea, Part of Your World, Poor Unfortunate Souls, Kiss the Girl, and Les Poissons), and The Little Mermaid: Favorites compilation album.

The Waterfalls: Over on the videos page I've added links to the two behind-the-scenes featurettes on the making of the movie, one hosted by Irene Bedard and the other by David Ogden Stiers. In the gallery I've added scans from the six Grolier books (Little Mischief, A Boy Across the Sea, The Hidden Village, On the High Seas, Keep an Eye on Meeko, and A Long Way Home) and the two more books (An Unlikely Pair and Into the Forest).

3 October 2016

Daring to Dream: I've been doing some tweaks and spring-cleaning all over the website, so let me know if anything doesn't work! I've overhauled the long-untouched movie, sequel and prequel pages, which should be more useful now, with more general info about the films, DVD releases and other bits 'n bobs. I've also revamped the videos page, where I've given up providing downloads (it's just too much hassle) and am just going to link to videos that are posted elsewhere. Over in the gallery, I've added four more books of the Treasure Chest series ("The Crabby Conductor", "Dear Diary", "Detective Sebastian", and "A Dragon's Tail"), and over in the Other Mermaids section I've added Mermaids of Tiburon and Barbie Dreamtopia.

The Waterfalls: I've updated the music page to include the Walt Disney Legacy Collection soundtrack, which means there are new pages for the demos for Just Around the River Bend, Different Drummer and First to Dance. I've also updated the videos page to feature links to other videos instead of downloads (which I can no longer provide). Over in the gallery, I've added a page for the Once Upon a Princess movie book scans, and scans from Disney Comic Hits! issues.

3 September 2016

The Waterfalls: I finally got around to reorganizing the gallery, which has been long overdue. Most of the old stuff is still there, just been moved around and cleaned up a bit. I've also scanned a whole backlog of books that I've been procrastinating on, namely: the Illustrated Classic Edition movie book, the Mouseworks movie book, the Read-Along movie books, the smaller Brimark & Ladybird movie books, three Scholastic Princess books, one Disney Princess short story (A Little Mischief), the Enchanted Stories comics, excerpts from the Enchanted Character Guide & Disney Villains books, a Disney Princess magazine story (Friends Forever), and a few more activity/colouring pages.

21 August 2016

Daring to Dream: It looks like the live-action film version of Ariel's story is happening after all, which is something to look forward to soon! On the comics page I've added "The Christmas Spirit" comic, plus I've added scans from four more books of the Treasure Chest series ("The Big Switch", "Castles in the Sand", "A Charmed Life", and "Cheer Up, Sebastian") and excerpts from Disney Villains: Delightfully Evil to the gallery. Over on the section of other mermaids, there's new pages for Mad About Men and Peter Pan no Bouken.

29 May 2016

Daring to Dream: At time of writing this, the Little Mermaid Hollywood Bowl concert with Sara Bareilles and Jodi Benson is a few days away, and hopefully there'll be some cool news and tidibits for fans that didn't get to attend. Here on Daring to Dream I've added a bunch more stuff to the gallery, namely scans from two books ("Ariel is My Babysitter" and "Flounder Loves Ariel"), one more Disney Princess comic, a few more colouring pages, and a few more activity pages.

Thanks to a submission, I've added pages from the 1995 Russian comic, not that. And over to the section on Other Mermaids, I've got pages up for Nautica from Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Nicki from Supernatural.

15 November 2015

Daring to Dream has There were two Disney cover albums released recently: "We Love Disney", which has a cover of "Part of Your World" by Jessie J, and "May J. Sings Disney", which has covers for "Part of Your World" and "Under the Sea", so I've added listings for both on the music page. Over in the gallery, I've added scans from the Mouseworks Classic Storybook movie picturebook, Ariel's Fishy Face Contest, Issues #26-31 of Ariel's World, and excerpts from the Princess Joke Book and How to be a Princess.
