"The Little Mermaid" has finally made its "splash" on DVD! Everyone knows the story of Ariel, the Little Mermaid, who dreams of nothing more than to be human. This movie instantly became a classic on its first debut, and we were just thrilled when it was released on DVD.
I have been amazed at how much brighter the graphics are and how much the music reaches out and grabs you now. My daughter had not ever seen this movie as it was released before her birth on VCR tape and had not been released in her lifetime on DVD. She knew the story and had seen some cartoons related to the original, but not the "real movie." Because of this, we made sure to pre-order this movie.
After watching this movie (a million times, it seemed), Ariel was an instant hit with my daughter. This is one of Disney's best princess movies in my opinion. The story of universal love and acceptance in not only boy/girl relations, but also in father/daughter relations is amazing! The songs in this movie and the bonus features are also great. My daughter plays/watched the special features almost as much as she does the movie. She especially likes the music video by Ashley Tisdale (from Disney Channel's Suite Life and High School Musical) and the Sneak Peak of the movie, The Little Mermaid III. I enjoyed watching the story of the making of this movie. I thought it was very interesting to watch how initial thoughts turn into such an outstanding movie.
