  • Classic Bonus--Fight with Ursula
  • Alternate Ending with Introduction


From the moment that Prince Eric's ship emerged from the fog in the opening credits of The Little Mermaid in 1989 it was apparent that Disney had somehow, suddenly recaptured a "magic" that had been dormant for 30 years. In the tale of a headstrong young mermaid who yearns to "spend a day, warm on the sand", Ariel trades her voice to Ursula, the Sea Witch (classically voiced by Pat Carroll), for a pair of legs. Ariel can only succeed if she receives true love's kiss in a few day's time and she needs all the help she can from a singing crab named Sebastian, a loudmouth seagull and a flounder. The lyrics and music by song-writing team Howard Ashman and Alan Menken are top form: witty and relevant, and they advance the story (go on, hum a few bars of "Under the Sea"). Mermaid put animation back on the studio's "to do" list and was responsible for ushering 1991's Beauty and the Beast into cinemas. A modern Disney classic. --Keith Simanton --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

I want to start with myself; I am not a 12 year old girl who has watched this film 5 times, I am a 17 year old boy who has watched this film near 100 times. The Little Mermaid will always be my favourite Disney film because of its characters, animation, story and score. This film combines each of these crucial aspects and formulates a well-rounded Disney film which will be loved by all. Do not be discouraged by the title or protagonist; this is NOT a girly film. Yes, Ariel is female but the story is not gender specific; we can all dream and take chances and there is no way that everything is targeted at little girls. In fact, there seems to be many areas which break the "Disney princess" convention e.g. the final fight.
Two things anger me about this film: the fact that some people deem it feminine and are drawn away from appreciating this real work of art and not enough praise is given to Alan Menken for his Academy Award winning musical score which resonates throughout. Now with this HD upgrade, hopefully it will gain more praise in both areas.
Besides the background details which should have more appreciation, the film throws you into the underwater world where you will meet Ariel and her friends as well as her father who stands in between the mermaid and becoming part of the human world. To "help" her is the brilliant and iconic Ursula but little does Ariel know how much her hopes will cost her and those closest to her. One major criticism of the film is Ariel herself whom some say throws women's rights back a few decades but I see Ariel as (certainly the first princess) a figure who shows conviction and determination to involve herself in action and does not rely on her prince to save her.

Starting from when Beauty and the Beast was first released on blu ray with classic numbering on its side, I've found myself collecting the majority of the releases to build up the set, and have been eagerly awaiting this as one of the better installments of the franchise.

The film itself would be an easy 9/10 as there are moments where the animation feels a little stilted and halfhearted (almost entirely in the opening sequence with the very plain dolphins etc) which drag it down, but once we first encounter the characters, the film picks up and never lets it sag for a moment.

The blu ray transfer is flawless, as mentioned in regards to the opening animation, I did have an initial concern when watching that it might look TOO clean and really highlight the flaws to detriment of the film, but this was not the case, and instead the colours are rich and vibrant and sound perfectly balanced between dialogue and musical interludes. Speaking of said musical numbers, absolute highlights of the transfer would be the flashy visuals to Poor Unfortunate Souls, and the enhanced mood and beauty to Kiss The Girl - both have never looked or sounded better. Overall transfer gets another 9/10 due to the slight issue taken with the initial few minutes as mentioned earlier. However if you have never had any issues the style and animation there, than this definately gets the extra point to a perfect 10.
The extra features are nicely varied and whilst personally not many I'd re-watch, all were interesting to at least see the once.

Of the many Disney blu rays I have seen thus far, this is easily one of the best transfers - right up there with the likes of Beauty and the Beast and Tangled and a must buy for any fan!

Format: DVD
This delightful children's film is a timeless Walt Disney classic and is based on the fairytale by Hans Christian Anderson. It focuses on life under the sea, in particular Ariel, a mermaid princess who falls in love with a human prince named Eric. She rescues him from the sea when his ship is struck by lightening and sunk. On her quest to win his heart she meets the sea witch Ursula, who's ultimate desire is to rule the ocean, and transforms her from a mermaid into a human but at a price, Ariel's voice. She has 3 days to win Eric's heart but if she fails she will become mermaid once more and be Ursula's forever..........
The Little Mermaid is typical of its genre; it has a certain charm which draws the children (and parents) into watching it. The film includes an array of fun characters including Sebastian, the reggae singing crab, and flounder, Ariel's faithful companion. Sebastian brings a real humour to the film and after a vague start it can be assured that by the end of the film everyone will warm to him. Another amusing character is Scuttle the Seagull who claims to be the expert on all things human. So when presented with a fork from one of Ariel's ship exploration's, declares ' now this is a dinglehopper which humans use to comb their hair with'. The colourful animation keeps children riveted and the Oscar winning sing-along tunes involve the family with the film. Another element which keeps the children engaged is the fact that the film is only 79 minutes long, which as any parent knows the shorter the film, the better, otherwise the small children get agitated and bored. A good storyline is always vital and this Hans Christian Anderson fairytale is the perfect, enchanting tale.
