What more can be said about this movie? It looks beautiful. It sounds beautiful. The emotions are strong as spider silk. You probably already know people love the film, so I guess I'll just discuss the commentary.
It's a really, really good commentary. You get tons of insights on not only the story, but the process of getting the film made. They explain a ton of great tidbits about when certain scenes were animated, what inspired certain characters, the works. If you love hearing how an animated movie is created, you'll be totally satisfied with the commentary on this disc.
Also, The Little Match Girl is on this, as billed. It's a spectacular short. It's pretty much guaranteed to make kids cry, but it's good for kids to be exposed to strong emotions now and then. This is a flat-out gorgeous animated short. Nothing more need be said.
I ordered this DVD for my 2 daughters. They both loved it! We had just come back from Disneyland and they are so into the princesses.his movie brings back memories of when I was growing up. I would recommend starting a collection with all of your favorite Disney movies. This movie is definitely ranked #1. I was expecting to have the DVD before we left on our vacation, but did not receive it in time. I was not disappointed with the movie itself, however was upset with the time it took for the movie to arrive and the condition of the DVD. I purchased this DVD from M&W DVD Depot. I expected the movie to arrive within the specified estimated time, however, it came 3 days late. also when opening the package, the DVD case was cracked on all sides, even parts of the plastic fell off when I took it out. I opened the DVD right away to find actual fingerprints on the DVD!! I did not expect to have such a poor display of a supposedly "new" product. I played the DVD and it was fine.
Great Disney Movie! I love to story of the little mermaid and really enjoy this version of the classic. It was my favorite movie growing up and I am so glad Disney decided to start bringing back the older animated movies in Blu-ray/DVD combo packs. It makes it easy to watch at home or in the car. I can't wait for more Disney movies to be released.
