Out of all the Disney movies that I have seen with my daughter I am surprised that we have never introduced her to The Little Mermaid. She knows most of the Disney Princesses, but Ariel was the one that she has heard of, but never seen. With the upcoming release 30th anniversary release of this beloved classic, it arrived digitally on February 12th, we will finally go to that magical world under the sea together.




In honor of its 30th anniversary, two-time Academy Award®-winner (Best Original Score and Best Original Song “Under the Sea,” 1989)“The Little Mermaid,” dives into the highly celebrated Walt Disney Signature Collection with all-new bonus features and a sing-along mode. The magical,  musical tale of mermaid princess Ariel—along with loveable sidekicks Sebastian and Flounder, and the love-to-hate sea witch Ursula—is shore to make a splash with all generations.

The Signature Edition of “The Little Mermaid” showcases its award-winning musical score and iconic songs such as “Under the Sea” and “Part of Your World” with a sing-along mode allowing you to accompany this beloved cast of characters on their journey.   Never-before-seen bonus features bring legendary composer Alan Menken and some of Disney’s most recognizable leading ladies together around a piano to reminisce, sing and celebrate “The Little Mermaid.” The latest installment of “Stories from Walt’s Office” compares Walt and Ariel’s love of collecting treasures. Viewers will also receive an inside look at the “The Little Mermaid” cast in their original recording sessions, explore hidden treasures and fun facts from the film, and enjoy a special performance of “Part of Your World” by a cappella singing sensation DCapella.
