OK, friends. This is not a drill. We are so excited to see The Little Mermaid on Blu-ray, because we’re a movie-loving family who is all about collecting all things Disney.
I’m not even kidding. In a world where we can watch every little thing digitally, our family still collects DVDs and Blu-ray films. If it’s a Disney film, we are definitely getting it. So, to see that The Little Mermaid on Blu-ray is being released from the Disney vault is fantastic.
Little Mermaid Bonus Features
When we shared Mark Henn’s thoughts on the re-release of The Little Mermaid, we also gave you all a sneak peek at the Little Mermaid Bonus Features included in the Blu-ray. There are a ton of items that you are going to love, but I’m pretty sure everyone is going to love the sing-along mode.
Here’s a list of all the features on the 30th Anniversary release of Little Mermaid Blu-ray:
