Disney’s The Little Mermaid: Diamond Edition
Rediscover the Film That Gave Voice to a Whole Generation
On October 1, 2013, Disney’s The Little Mermaid: Diamond Edition will splash its way into homes for the very first time in Blu-ray™ hi-definition with new, breathtaking picture and sound restoration!
A whole new generation will discover life under the sea when Disney’s The Little Mermaid: Diamond Edition comes to home video this fall. 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).
