The Little Mermaid revolves around the story of a mermaid named Ariel. She falls in love with a human Prince and makes a deal with the evil Ursula who grants her legs in exchange for her voice. Chef Louis’ character spends most of the movie trying to capture and cook the lobster, Sebastian.
Actor Terry Crews has expressed that he wants to play the role of Ariel’s father, King Triton. He posted a photoshopped picture of himself on the tail of King Triton. He captioned it, “Ariel’s Dad!!!! #ArielsGotTerry #AmericasGotTerry”
