***Disclosure: I solely received this blu-ray for review and I am sharing this for the benefit of my readers. All opinions are my own.***
Have you heard? On Oct 1st, The Little Mermaid will be splashing it’s ways into homes for the very first time on Blu-ray™ with a Hi-Def new breathtaking picture and sound restoration! I was extremely lucky to get an early preview of the Blu-ray and I can’t tell you how thrilled I was to see this amazing animated feature come to life in our home once again.
If for some reason you’ve never seen this film here is a little about it:
Ariel (voiced by Jodi Benson), is a free-spirited mermaid, who is off on the adventure of a lifetime with her best friend, the adorable Flounder (voiced by Jason Marin), and the reggae-singing Caribbean crab Sebastian (voiced by Samuel E. Wright) 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 (voiced by Pat Carroll).
The talented voice of this movie include:
Jodi Benson (Toy Story 2, Toy Story 3) as Ariel
Samuel E. Wright (The Lion King Broadway Show) as Sebastian
Jason Marin (Back to the Future) as Flounder
Pat Carroll (Laverne and Shirley) as Ursula
Buddy Hackett (The Music Man) as Scuttle
Christopher Daniel Barnes (The Brady Bunch Movie) as Eric
Kenneth Mars (Young Frankenstein) as Triton
Ben Wright (The Jungle Book, 101 Dalmatians) as Grimsby
Paddi Edwards (Hercules) as Flotsam and Jetsam
Edie McClurg (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off) as Carlotta the maid
Will Ryan (The Land Before Time) as Harold the Seahorse
Rene Auberjonois (The Patriot) as Chef Louis
The Directors of this movie are John Musker (Aladdin) and Ron Clements (Aladdin). It’s a timeless tale that is brought back to life in a vivid way with the remastering of this amazing movie!
The Blu-ray is not only an amazing way to see this film, this Blu-ray also has some amazing Bonus Features.
