I've reviewed a couple of Disney movies here on my blog because I love these classic children's movies. In fact, I don't really buy DVD's except for the Disney classics. They're a must-have in my book. But I have to say that the movie on the very top of the list of my favorites, has always been, the Little Mermaid! I was thrilled to hear that it will be released for the first time on Blu-ray Combo Pack and HD Digital on October 1st.
I have always loved Ariel's fun and explorative personality because she followed her dream and got it in the end. Along the way, there were lessons to be learned. She got help from the "bad guys" and lost her voice because of it. I always thought that the trouble Ariel got into, wasn't because she was mischievous, but because she knew what she wanted. Gotta love a strong girl like that. But that starry look in her eyes as she envisions her dreams really did make me love her as a child. Of course the music IS the very best! I totally remember swimming in my back yard and singing "part of your world" as I splashed around.
And of course my daughters had to be mermaids for Halloween as soon as we could manage. My oldest wanted to be Ariel, but specifically the Ariel "on land" so she could walk and trick-or-treat. Haha. I had to support her opinion in this one. We even spray painted the little blondie to be a red head that night. She stated that her younger sister was one of the "mermaid sisters." Ahh the memories!
They've grown up a lot since then and they still love this classic. We all watched the new Blu-ray edition together and it was amazing. (I still can't get over Blu-ray). We all sang and my kids are still impressed that I know every word in the movie. I can recite along with it on command! It's a talent that hasn't waned over the years. Haha. My little mer-man even joined in a few songs, although I'm sure he wouldn't admit it. I hope these little darlings can find their own voice like Ariel did in the end.
If you don't own this one yet, it should be on the list! Check out the Little Mermaid Diamond Edition Blu-ray Combo Pack here.
