The Little Mermaid Diamond Edition Blu-Ray+DVD Combo Pack Giveaway

[ 57 ] October 17, 2013 |

Little_Mermaid=1=2013_Diamond_Edition=Print=Blu-ray_Superset=Beauty_Shot===WDSHE_Worldwide=Rev_Ecom I was an adult by the time The Little Mermaid came out, actually I think I was barely eighteen, but I had to see it! Hey, this was the first Disney movie with a heroine who wasn’t blond. She was a redhead like me. Woot! Disney fairytales always have a way of making girls of any age wish for their own happy ending, so my friend Angela accompanied me to watch it in the theater because there is no way I would have gone by myself. Then we went out for dinner like adults because it was girls night. We both loved the movie and I knew then that if I was ever blessed with a daughter, I would make sure she watched it, too. Little did I know that Ariel would become that wished-for daughter’s favorite Disney Princess.

Who can resist a tale about giving up your most cherished gift for your one true love? Or a Reggae signing crab named Sebastian? Certainly not me! Or my little girl.

On October 1, 2013, The Little Mermaid Diamond Edition debuted in Diamond Edition Blu-ray 3D™, Blu-ray, Digital Copy and HD and SD Digital formats. This is only for a limited time and, as the commercials always say, then it goes back into the vault. Forever.

From The Walt Disney Studios:

Finally releasing from the Disney vault, The Little Mermaid is the ultimate at-home viewing experience, Disney’s Blu-ray Combo Pack (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy) contains digitally restored picture and sound, a digital copy of the film, and a variety of never-before-seen bonus features, that allows families to experience Ariel’s underwater adventures like never before in wondrously immersive 3-D. This Combo Pack includes the Blu-ray 3D, a Blu-ray, a DVD, a Digital Copy, plus a 10 Music Track Download.

Wright (Broadway’s “The Lion King”) as Sebastian, Christopher Daniel Barnes (“The Brady Bunch Movie”) as Eric, Kenneth Mars (“Young Frankenstein”) as Triton, Buddy Hackett (“The Music Man”) as Scuttle, Jason Marin (“Back to the Future”) as Flounder and René Auberjonois (“The Patriot”) as Chef Louis.

How cool is that? I can’t wait to watch this with Ro! She is going to think I’m the best mommy, ever…at least until the movie ends, that is. But then I’ll get to annoy her by signing Kiss The Girl, Under the Sea and Part of Your World at the top of my lungs while dropping her off at school, so it all works out in the end, right? Plus, I can do my booty dance during the karaoke bonus feature and truly embarrass my kid.

I’m a good mom like that.

For some interactive fun, you and your little girl can go to the Little Mermaid movie site where you can watch video song clips and play some neat games.
