The Little Mermaid 2D & 3D Blu-rays Detailed

Posted April 19, 2013 11:21 PM by Webmaster

Walt Disney PicturesWalt Disney Home Entertainment has officially announced and detailed the Blu-ray release of co-writers/directors Ron Clements and John Musker's The Little Mermaid and The Little Mermaid 3D. Backed by a full video and audio restoration, Disney's 28th animated feature makes its long-awaited Blu-ray debut on October 1st.

The film is available for pre-order via four Diamond Edition variations:

Synopsis: Free-spirited mermaid Ariel (voiced by Jodi Benson, Toy Story 3) sets off on the adventure of a lifetime with her best friend, the adorable Flounder (Jason Marin, Back to the Future), and a reggae-singing Caribbean crab named Sebastian (Samuel E. Wright, The Lion King Broadway show) at her side. But it will take all of her courage and determination to make her dreams come true, and to save her father Triton's (Kenneth Mars, Young Frankenstein) beloved kingdom from the sneaky sea witch Ursula (Pat Carroll, Laverne and Shirley).

The film's voice cast also includes Buddy Hackett (The Music Man) as Scuttle, Christopher Daniel Barnes (The Brady Bunch Movie) as Eric, Ben Wright (The Jungle Book) 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 and Rene Auberjonois (The Patriot) as Chef Louis.

The Little Mermaid is one of the most celebrated animated films of all time, and winner of two Academy Awards for Best Music, Original Score and Best Music, Original Song ("Under The Sea").

Each release of The Little Mermaid boasts 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 surround track, and the following special features:

  • All-New Music Video
  • The Real Little Mermaid: Live Action Reference Model
  • Part of Her World: Jodi Benson's Voyage To New Fantasyland
  • Howard's Lecture
  • Classic DVD Bonus Features
  • @ Disney Animation
  • Deleted Character
  • Disney Intermission

The description for the 3D version sounds like a 4 disc set... Is there something I'm missing here?

Either the Digital Copy is on a piece of paper or they don't count a Digital Copy as a disc.

@MrClarke: As has been discussed in the forum, Disney is apparently switching to DC downloads like the other studios. (The music in the 3D set is also a download.)

Thanks to both of you for the responses. I will say, trivial as it may seem, I hate when they start changing stuff on the releases in a series. I'm so OCD for consistency lol. Do I care if the DC is downloaded or now on the DVD? Not really. I just wish it would've been that way from the get-go then

I will probably stick with 2D Blu-ray unless 3D version is less than $5 difference at the stores. From watching the 3D versions of Beauty and the Beast & the Lion King, while the background had nice 3D effect, the 3D effect on character models were awkward. Plus, I already own the soundtrack.
Definitely getting it on Day 1. My first Disney movie to see it in theater and holds special place for me.

Why do these studios insist on releasing the 3-D versions seperately from the 2-D versions? Such a waste of plastic. They finally stopped using discs for the digital copies only to now have 3 or 4 different release packages of one freaking movie.

I'm just gonna hate. Because Sweden (among others) never get these releases. We only get the standard ones! So we'll either have to buy the US releases or if we want the Swedish dub (which is lovely for this movie), we have to buy a local copy as well! >=C
Even the artwork for our releases are despicable in comparison:

The artwork for the 3D combo pack is amazing for this movie. But it sucks knowing that we only will get the usual trashy art work, most probably looking something like this: http://www.blu-ray.com/dvd/The-Little-Mermaid-DVD/48209/

@JMDiaz718 because some people like myself don't like 3D and don't have any use for it so I don't need the extra charge for a disc I won't use.

@JMDiaz: Because 3D is still a relatively tiny market and isn't growing at the rate studios hoped. A local installer I know recently told me that while just about every display he installs is 3D capable, hardly any of his customers actually have 3D capability, nor wanted that aspect of their new display set up, and he's doing more of the higher end installs - dedicated theaters, front projection, etc, where you have a higher 3D clientele. Even our local Cineplex has dramatically scaled back it's 3D showings over the past year, in favor of more digital 2D.

I'm more curious about why Disney continues to release the same BD/DVD combos in both BD and DVD packaging.

@MrClarke: There is the possibility that the DVD disc is also a Digital Copy disc.

@MoulinBlu: Did you just make that up? Please supply the reference(s) for your information. I honestly don't believe you. 3D is everywhere, and the less expensive the players and TVs get, the more prominent it will become. Again, reference please. Thank you.

Is it just me, or are Disney getting real slack with their Special Features these days??

Remember the extensive documentaries on the Disney studio on the Snow White disc??

Or that feature length documentary on the making of Beauty and the Beast??

Or those Cine-Explore Visual Commentaries they did for a few of the films?

All we've been getting over the last couple years are a re-hash of DVD special features and lame features like a "New Music Video" and "Live Action Reference Footage" .....

Where's our feature length doco on this one??? Same with the Lion King... all we got with that was a 20 minute doco on the film's legacy and the Broadway musical...

Not happy, this is one of the reasons I started collecting these films in the first place.
