The one name that knows that all too well is the one and only Disney, and today they are releasing one of the absolute classics for the first time in high definition with new breathtaking picture and sound restoration: Disney's The Little Mermaid: Diamond Edition.
Is there anyone that doesn't know this magical tale?
In The Little Mermaid, 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).
With unforgettable characters, thrilling adventures, soaring Academy Award-winning music (1989: Best Music, Original Score, and Best Music, Original Song, Under The Sea.), The Little Mermaid is one of the most celebrated animated films of all time.
Now, as it is spectacularly transformed for the first time on Blu-ray with digitally restored picture and brilliant high-definition sound, it is even more amazing to venture under the sea where Ariel longs to be part of the human world.
