My time here as your roving Disney reporter is coming to a close. Don’t be sad! While it means this is the last post for the Little Mermaid and Disney Planes event – it also means we’ve come to the best part of all: The Little Mermaid Diamond Edition!
I know what you’re thinking: I already have the Little Mermaid DVD. Why do I want to buy a second one? I know because that’s what I thought…at first. Not only was my love for Ariel and her underwater companions rekindled by my visit to the Disney Studios (and meeting with Jodi Benson – still awesome. Can’t get over it), but I also received my own Diamond Edition DVD & BluRay set. It came just in time too because my kids were sick, sick, sick and the uplifting music and lovable characters were just what the doctor ordered.
The Little Mermaid Diamond Edition breathes new life into one of Disney’s most beloved animated films with over 3 hours of bonus features.
Part of Her World: Jodi Benson’s Voyage to New Fantasyland – Come along with Jodi Benson, voice of Ariel, as she and her family visit the New Fantasyland and celebrate at the Art of Animation Resort. Get a sneak peek of the brand new Little Mermaid attraction where you can be part of the film by going under the sea and watching your favorite characters come to life.
Never Before Seen Footage – Do you ever wonder if there is more to the story? The Little Mermaid Diamond Edition includes clips of early animation that you’ve never seen before. See the alternate battle ending. Watch the jaunty full length original version of the opening song, “Fathoms Below” where you’ll find out a jaw dropping secret about Ursula! And have you met Harold the Merman? You will now.
Other bonuses include Under the Scene, Crab-E-Oke where you can sing along with Sebastian, Carly Rae Jepsen’s music video “Part of Your World” and so much more.
But what about the movie?! I hear you. With technical words like ‘digitally remastered’ you might be left shaking your head. Here’s what it means: Brighter, bolder, better. The colors were always amazing, but now it’s as if they pop right off the screen. Characters come alive with retouching that will have you feeling as if it’s the first time you’ve ever watched The Little Mermaid.
Come on… who doesn’t want to relive this scene?
The Little Mermaid Diamond Edition comes with copies on both DVD and BluRay + a digital copy that you can access from your smart phone, tablet or laptop. And don’t forget over 3 hours of bonus footage right at your fingertips. Turn your next road trip from “Are we there yet?” to “We got the spirit! You got to hear it! Under the sea!!!”
The Little Mermaid Diamond Edition DVD/BluRay Combo pack is available now for a limited time.
