I’m sure we all have memories of watching our favorite Disney films as a child. Well, I’m very excited that one of my favorites is being released from the vault onto Blu-ray for the first (and limited) time. It’s the Little Mermaid Diamond Edition and it comes out in just a few weeks! Disclosure: I’m going to be receiving a free copy of this new edition.
Little Mermaid Diamond Edition
I’m quite positive if you are old enough to be reading this post, then you are well aware of this popular Disney title. However, in case you have forgotten and need a refresher, here’s a synopsis of the movie:
Ariel (voiced by Jodi Benson), is a free-spirited mermaid, who is off on the adventure of a lifetime with her best friend, the adorable Flounder (voiced by Jason Marin), and the reggae-singing Caribbean crab Sebastian (voiced by Samuel E. Wright) at her side. But it will take all of her courage and determination to make her dreams come true—and save her father’s (voiced by Kenneth Mars) beloved kingdom from the sneaky sea witch Ursula (voiced by Pat Carroll).
Fun fact about this film: It was originally released in theaters a little over a week after I was born (November 15, 1989 to be exact). So, I think that’s pretty neat. You may be wondering what makes the Little Mermaid Diamond Edition so special, well wonder no more…
Disney’s Blu-ray Diamond Collection represents The Walt Disney Studios’ most prestigious and treasured animated classics. Diamond Edition titles boast the highest level of picture and sound; feature groundbreaking, state-of-the-art immersive bonus content made possible because of Blu-ray technology.
Additionally, the Little Mermaid Diamond Edition has several other special features. This includes the “Part of Your World” Music Video performed by Carly Rae Jepsen and meeting the deleted character, Harold the Merman. Haha! I think that last part sounds kind of funny yet sad. You can purchase a copy of this newest edition on October 1st.
