The Little Mermaid Blu-ray

Posted February 1, 2013 01:38 PM by Webmaster

Walt Disney PicturesWalt Disney Home Entertainment has announced the Diamond Edition Blu-ray release of Ron Clements and John Musker's beloved classic, The Little Mermaid. The studio's 28th animated feature and the first film of the Disney Renaissance is set to make its long-awaited Blu-ray debut on October 1st.

Official synopsis: One of the most celebrated animated films of all time and winner of two Academy Awards, The Little Mermaid tells the story of Ariel (voiced by Jodi Benson), a fun-loving and mischievous mermaid, is off on the adventure of a lifetime with her best friend, the adorable Flounder (Jason Marin), and the reggae-singing Caribbean crab Sebastian (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 (Pat Carroll).

Disney has yet to reveal finalized cover art, technical specifications or special features. However, the studio has issued a new trailer for the Diamond Edition Blu-ray release:

Currently there is no news regarding a 3D Blu-ray release of The Little Mermaid. More and more details will emerge over the next few months, though, so we'll keep you posted

No mention of 3D whatsoever ... beginning to really wonder if the 3D cancellation is indeed true. There are scattered "sources" ( http://bit.ly/14vr1g1 ) that indicates otherwise that it's "delayed", not cancelled. I don't own a 3D TV but I'd do anything for it to be on the big screen again, or for me, the first time.

Boy, Disney sure likes to hold onto these movies for a long time. Please bring us Aladdin as well. That would cover all the major Disney animated films I think.

Geez why down vote my comment?! What's wrong with wanting to see your favourite movie on the big screen LOL. Anyway was going to say that they might pull a "Beauty and the Beast 3D" kinda of release, a year later from its 2D counterpart. Then again the listing disappeared, even for the 2D one. What is up??

I was looking forward to seeing this in 3D on the big screen, but at this point, I wouldn't care if it's not released on Blu-ray 3D. All I want is the 3-disc combo pack with the Blu-ray, DVD, and digital copy.

Disneys problem is that they expected all the 3D remakes to do as well as The Lion King at the cinema, but some titles are more popular than others, hence the reason that B&TB and Finding Nemo didn't do as well in sales (although I think that Nemo is more populat than B&TB). It is this reason that they are either delaying The Little Mermaid 3D or have cancelled it completely. It also didn't help them that they released the titles on 3D Blu-ray within a couple of weks of the cinema release. I knew that I could own the item very soon so held off and didn't go to the cinema and I am sure I am not the only one who did this.
The Little Mermaid is one of the best titles Disney have ever done and it would be a crime not to release this in 3D as I think that the sales on tickets at the cinema and 3D Blu-ray will be the same as or overtake The Lion King.
If you have been to Disney and seen the Philharmagic show then you know how fantastic The Little Mermaid looks in 3D and that was done years ago... just imagine how it could look now.

It's all fine and good that the new classics are getting the Blu-ray treatment.. But what about the other older classics such as "The Jungle Book"? It would have been good for them to had released it last year for a 45th anniversary edition, but again it took them so long to even put it on DVD and the next anniversary date would be in another 4 years for it... We'll be on to another format by that time.

Just looked on the 2D Blu-ray disc which was included in the 5 disc edition of Monsters Inc 3D and although there is nothing on the 3D disc about The Little Mermaid, on the 2D disc it says coming to Theatres Monsters University and then goes onto coming to Blu-ray and even though it doesn't show The Little Mermaid in 3D it actually says that it is coming to 3D Blu. So maybe they are just not having 3D release at cinemas but still releasing the 3D version for home viewing.

Disney scrapped the theatrical 3D release. I wonder if that killed the 3D conversion across the board.

A work acquaintance of mine (who works for Disney Studios) informed me that the 3D release of "The Little Mermaid" will still be released on the "Ultimate Collector's Edition Combo Pack." The only answer that I cannot seem to find is whether or not this feature will be released in a Collector's Blu-ray Steelbook?
