The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning / The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Little Mermaid II: Return To the Sea
Score: 4.5/5.0


The Little Mermaid II: Return To the Sea does at least feature excellent video. Disney's 1080p transfer delivers bold, exciting colors and sturdy animated details. Ariel's bright red hair, multicolored fish under the sea, golden adornments on human clothes, and even the murky green that surrounds Morgana are all superbly balanced and exacting, lighting up the screen and doing more than any other element in the film to define it. Image clarity is excellent. Lines are smooth and natural, and the Blu-ray resolution brings out the best the animation has to offer even on large displays, including wooden textures, rocky formations, and most every object above and below the sea. The image does suffer from some occasionally light banding, but this is otherwise a picture-perfect Disney transfer in every regard.

The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning
Score: 4.5/5.0


The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning's 1080p transfer is everything one would expect from a top-end Disney Blu-ray release. Colors are cheery and vibrant. Even if there's a lack of color diversity and subtlety -- reds, blues, and greens are all presented as very basic shades here -- they're unmistakably bold and jump off the screen at every opportunity. Details are pleasing. The high definition resolution allows the image to remain stable even on large display surfaces, and viewers will appreciate both clean, even lines and the ability to see with tremendous clarity every animated detail that went into the making of the film. Very light banding pops up along a few backdrops and represents the only real downside to an otherwise pristine transfer.


The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning / The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Little Mermaid II: Return To the Sea
Score: 4.0/5.0


The Little Mermaid II: Return To the Sea arrives on Blu-ray with a good, nicely balanced DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless soundtrack. Music is presented admirably, yielding terrific vocal and instrumental clarity with a nice and wide front stage presence but not an excess of back speaker usage. A few heavier action sound effects are sufficiently hefty and nicely fill the stage. Several supporting effects, such as rolling waters or dialogue reverberation in chapter nine, are gently immersive. Dialogue delivery is steady, clearly delivered, and focused in the front-center portion of the soundstage.

The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning
Score: 4.5/5.0


The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning swims onto Blu-ray with a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless soundtrack. It's perhaps slightly more aggressive and spacious in comparison to the track that accompanies The Little Mermaid II: Return To the Sea. Here, music is naturally flowing and richly clear, enjoying fine front-end spacing and a subtle and welcoming surround support. Several action effects are appropriately hefty, particularly the pirate "attack" heard near film's start. The track features some welcome and active surround support features, notably inside the underground dance club. An empty club and strummed or tapped instruments result in a quality reverberation through the back, and large crowds inside yield a pleasing din. Dialogue is presented accurately and naturally from the center. Overall, this is a high end soundtrack from Disney.
