The Little Mermaid: Diamond Edition Blu-ray Review
The Little Mermaid: Diamond Edition Splashes Its Ways Into Homes For The Very First Time on Blu-ray. Read Kidzworld's review of the blu-ray combo pack!
Walt Disney Studios invites families everywhere to rediscover the film that gave voice to a whole generation as The Little Mermaid splashes into homes for a limited time only. One of the most celebrated animated musical films of all time tells the magical tale of Ariel, a free-spirited mermaid princess, who is off on the adventure of a lifetime with her best friend, the adorable Flounder, and the calypso-singing Caribbean crab Sebastian at her side. But it will take all of her courage and determination to make her dreams come true—and save her father’s beloved kingdom from the sneaky sea witch Ursula.
To celebrate the return of the movie that gave voice to a whole generation, Disney has teamed up with the voice of a new generation, Grammy®-nominated music superstar Carly Rae Jepsen, to record a new version of The Little Mermaid’s beloved song “Part of Your World,” which will appear as a music video on the upcoming Diamond Edition Blu-ray™ Combo Pack releases.

The Bottom Line
Animation has come a long way since The Little Mermaid hit theaters in 1989, especially when it comes to underwater adventures - just take a look at Finding Nemo, but despite advances in technology this Disney animated classic remains just that, a classic. It has an unbeatable musical score and storyline that anyone who has ever wanted something they can't have or fought with their parents can get behind, not to mention the characters are beyond loveable, who wouldn't want to follow the adventures of a spunky teen mermaid with a thirst for knowledge and people?
Now, viewers can experience Ariel's adventures like never before with sparkling high definition picture and sound, then explore the making of this modern family classic with all-new bonus features. The bonus features cleverly play up the film's enduring soundtrack, and has two features that stand out: A brand new music video with pop star Carly Rae Jepson singing one of the movie's most famous songs - "Part of Your World," as well as a behind-the-scenes look at Jodi Benson (who originally sang "Part of Your World" and has played Ariel's voice since the very beginning) in "Part of Her World: Jodi Benson's Voyage to New Fantasyland." The only downside of owning The Little Mermaid is getting those hummable songs stuck in your head for days.
