Celebrating Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” 30th Anniversary
Wow. I can’t believe it’s been 30 years since the theatrical release of Disney’s “The Little Mermaid”. I was just a kid when it came out, and I remember singing the catchy tunes and dancing to them with my sister and brother. My favorite songs were: “Under the Sea” and “Part of Your World”.
The Little Mermaid is part of Walt Disney Signature Collection, available on Digital 2/12 and 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray™ on 2/26. The new anniversary release of Disney’s “Little Mermaid” contains a sing-a-long mode (karaoke!) and never-before-seen bonus features which include: legendary composer Alan Menken and some of Disney’s most recognizable leading ladies celebrating “The Little Mermaid” in song. The latest installment of “Stories from Walt’s Office” compares Walt and Ariel’s love of collecting treasures. There’s also a look at the “The Little Mermaid” cast in their original recording sessions, hidden treasures and fun facts from the film, and a special performance of “Part of Your World” by a cappella singing sensation DCapella. In addition, there are hours of bonus features included in this special release!
For our special movie night in, we celebrated in mermaid style, thanks to some mermaid-themed products gifted to us from Walt Disney Studios.
We invited one of my daughter’s friends over to watch The Little Mermaid, and they had a great time. My daughter has seen it before, but it’s one of those movies you can watch over and over again. Even though they can’t fully read yet, they wanted the sing-a-long version. It was super cute!
Be sure to order your copy of Disney’s The Little Mermaid, available on Blu-Ray 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray™ on 2/26 and on Digital 2/12!
