Princess Melody is the protagonist from Disney's 2000 direct-to-video sequel to The Little Mermaid, The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea.
Princess Melody is the daughter of King Eric and Queen Ariel. Due to the dangerous threats Melody receives from Morgana the Sea Witch (the younger sister of the now-dead Ursula), Ariel and Eric build a wall around their castle to protect Melody from her. However, being part mermaid, Melody longs to become part of the Sea World, and she visits Morgana, who temporarily turns her into a mermaid.
Melody's speaking and singing voices were provided by Tara Strong.
Appearance and PersonalityEdit
Although Melody inherited some physical traits from her mother, Queen Ariel, she tends to look a bit more like her father, King Eric.
Melody is a petite, cute and very beautiful 12 year old tomboy with long raven-black hair (most often worn in a low ponytail tied with a green rubber band), large pale-blue eyes, full well-shaped eyebrows, light pink lips, and a fair complexion. For most of the movie, she was only in her lingerie. She wore a white camisole with a green bow that showed her belly-button briefly and frilly white knee to ankle-length pantalettes. She inherited her hair colour and eyebrows from her father, but her hair length, style, lips and facial structure come from her mother. The blue colour of her eyes, however, is something she shares with both of her parents.
Personality-wise and despite her cuteness and beauty, Melody is more like her mother. She's outspoken, adventurous, curious, stubborn, bold and headstrong, and dreams of living in a different world (ironically, she dreams of living a life under the sea, while her mother, born a mermaid, dreamt of life on land). However, Melody did inherit some of her father's personality traits as well, mainly bashfulness and insecurity. For example, Melody has a tendency to be shy, insecure, and a bit clumsy around others, traits her now-matured mother never seemed to possess. However, like Ariel, Melody has no problem speaking her mind to her parents, especially to her mother, with whom she often butts heads with (the same way Ariel butted heads with her father, King Triton).
