Netizens Delighted With Ariel And Eric’s Chemistry At Disney’s The little Mermaid

The story of Ariel and Eric is often considered one of the best written stories in movie history. She made fans go wild in 1989 and now again in 2023. Her story takes quite a while to unfold as Eric wasn’t sure about Ariel at first. After all, Eric was a human being and Ariel was half fish half human.

Fans are especially impressed by the chemistry between Halle Bailey and Jonah Hauer-King, having been skeptical of her cast since the movie’s announcement. However, the duo proved everyone wrong and put on a memorable performance.

This is how fans on Twitter reacted to scenes from the Disney movie.

the scene under the sea is one of the cutest/best scenes i’ve seen in a movie all year, “my little mermaid”, ariel teaching eric how to say his name, i had so much fun #The little Mermaid
the live action version made me realize how perfect eric is for ariel because we saw how cute and kind he is. The scene where ariel curiously examines his map while eric patiently explains everything and laughs at his enthusiasm was SO HEALTHY!

ariel helped eric figure out his name by connecting him with aries while looking at the constellations he was very clever

and eric was even smarter by replying with “beautiful name. written in the stars.” to ariel, truly one of the best scenes they had

I also want to take a second to say that halle and jonah’s chemistry as ariel and eric was so beautiful to watch. The whole scene in the library made me smile a lot.
