Dark Horse will release the young reader-focused book.

Dark Horse Comics is expanding its successful Disney Publishing line with a journey into the world of The Little Mermaid for a story of a young Ariel and what she’ll dare to do for her sisters.

The young reader-focused Disney Princess: Ariel and the Sea Wolf, a 48-page graphic novel by Liz Marsham, Tara Nichole Whitaker and Chris Dickey, not only features a lead story in which Ariel risks the wrath of a dangerous monster to save her sister's favorite bracelet — only to find out that the monster might not be so monstrous after all — but it also follows the format of Dark Horse’s earlier Disney Princess titles by including special features and activities for younger readers to enjoy.

The graphic novel is the latest release in a deal between the Oregon-based publisher and Disney, which has so far seen comic books based on a number of Disney animated and Pixar properties, including Zootopia, Aladdin, Disney’s Frozen and Pixar’s The Incredibles.

Disney Princess: Ariel and the Sea Wolf will be released April 10, 2019.
