From Amazon.co.uk

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 the Blu-ray edition.

‘The Little Mermaid’ is not the best Disney film ever (that might be ‘Bambi’ or ‘The Jungle Book’ from the days when Walt Disney himself ran the company) and some parts are more interesting than others, however, it is good, including for adults. It has some of the best songs of any Disney film, for the music, the words and the performance e.g. the calypso-style ‘Under the Sea’.

Most of the plot is based quite closely on a Hans Christian Anderson story of the same name except that the ending is ‘Disneyfied’, which is not necessarily a bad thing. A mermaid called Ariel, daughter of the Sea King, loves a land-based human prince, but it is hard for them to be together as neither can naturally live in the other’s element.

When ‘The Little Mermaid’ was released in 1989, Disney had been going through a difficult period financially and some corners had to be cut e.g. the villainous undersea witch Ursula, meant to be octopus-like, had only 6 tentacles rather than 8, because it was cheaper to draw her that way.

Fortunately, the success of ‘The Little Mermaid’ followed in the next few years by ’Beauty and the Beast’ (and ‘Aladdin’, which I am less sure about) possibly even saved the existence of Disney animation, which had been in gradual decline after Walt Disney’s death. Part of the credit for this is due to the writers of the music and lyrics of all these films, Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, who had also written, more for adults, the brilliant musical (stage show and, especially, film) of ‘Little Shop of Horrors’.

‘The Little Mermaid’ is from the last period in which Disney films were still drawn by hand, which gives them a different look from more recent ones produced through digital technology.

Some of the ‘Special Features’ included are aimed at young children, but there are also interesting documentary features that may mean more to adults.

Daughter loved it, especially when Ariel sings. She was very upset to discover girls leave their families (their dads) when they get married (appreciate that it not always the case but here the story goes like that). Ariels' main passion seems to quickly become getting married.
