Disregarding her father’s order to stay away from the world above the sea, she swims to the surface and, in a raging storm, rescues the prince of her dreams. Determined to be human, she strikes a bargain with the devious sea witch, Ursula (Pat Carroll), and trades her fins and beautiful voice for legs. With her best friend, the adorable and chatty Flounder (Jason Marin) and reluctant chaperone Sebastian (Samuel E. Wright), the hilarious, reggae-singing Caribbean crab, at her side, Ariel must win Prince Eric’s love (Christopher Daniel Barnes) and save her father’s kingdom, all in a heart-pounding race against time!  “The Little Mermaid” repeats on Sunday, March 22nd at 5:00PM ET/PT.

SLEEPING BEAUTY
(8:45-10:30 PM ET/PT)
          The ABC Family premiere of “Sleeping Beauty” tells the story of Princess Aurora (Mary Costa) and the evil curse placed on her by vengeful fairy Maleficent (Eleanor Audley). According to the prophecy, Aurora will prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and fall into a deep slumber on her 16th birthday, from which only the kiss of her true love can awaken her. Three doting fairies – Flora (Verna Felton ), Fauna (Barbara Jo Allen) and Merryweather (Barbara Luddy) – whisk Aurora away to raise her deep in the forest where Maleficent cannot find her. One day while riding in the woods, Prince Phillip (Bill Shirley) meets Aurora, now known as Briar Rose, and the two fall in love. But when Rose learns from the fairies that she is a princess and must return to the castle immediately to fulfill her royal duties, she is devastated at the thought of leaving Philip. Once back at the castle, Maleficent fulfills her curse, putting Princess Aurora in a deep sleep. The prince rushes to the castle to rescue Aurora, but first must battle Maleficent, who assumes the form of a fierce, fire-spouting dragon. “Sleeping Beauty” repeats on Sunday, March 22nd at 6:45pm ET/PT.

It will take the help of her daring animal friends Jaq (James MacDonald) and Gus (also James MacDonald) and a perfect fit into a glass slipper to create the ultimate fairy tale ending.
