DVD Review: “The Little Mermaid (Two-Disc Special Edition)”

(Walt Disney Home Entertainment, 1989/2006. 2 discs. 83 minutes. Rated G.) Directed by Ron Clements and John Musker.

Wow! I had never seen The Little Mermaid before viewing this splendid disc! A frisky young mermaid, Ariel, makes a Faustian bargain with an unscrupulous seahag in order to meet a human prince on land! Of course this movie began the second major era of Disney animation. 2-disc set has plenty of extras, including deleted scenes, making-of featurettes, alternate ending, commentary by Musker, Clements and composer Alan Menken, and much more. Plus a musical sneak peek at Little Mermaid III.
