Followers awaiting a revamp of The Little Mermaid on DVD needs to be happy to know that the brand new, absolutely restored model will get the remedy it deserved all alongside. The Particular Version is offered in 1:78 side ratio, versus the unique 1:66 presentation, and gone is the grainy unique switch, which had Ariel’s mottled complexion trying like she spent a while in a tanning mattress. Varied crew members chime in on the audio commentary observe, however most dominant is composer Alan Menken, who provides in beforehand taped interviews with the late lyricist Howard Ashman (a welcome shock).

    This review is from: The Little Mermaid (DVD, 2006, 2-Disc Set, Platinum Edition) (DVD)
    Took a gamble due to the reviews on here. The movie was packaged in plastic like from the store but upon opening the case you can tell it’s a complete boot leg copy. The plastic of the case is super thin and flimsy and the dvd’s themselves have this mark on them like the picture image is coming off or started too (see picture). There are also weird yellow spots on the dvd image and the back of the DVDs are dirty and not bran new looking like they should look. We watched the movie (disc 1) and even though it works you can tell it’s a crappy copy and not revised.
