Everyone knows how much I love and respect Disney Home Video for the love and care they put into their Blu-ray releases – live action. I’m not counting the suckfest that was Iron-Man 3. For them the “Diamond Edition” label actually means something so they take extra time and care when releasing their classics on Blu-ray. The Little Mermaid Diamond Edition is finally out and it is glorious,.
I have made no secret of my love for Disney’s Second Screen app technology. It is a very cool and unique way of viewing extra features of your Disney Blu-rays in a home environment. Emphasis on the word HOME. Disney is now taking their second screen technology and ENCOURAGING people to bring it to the theaters on their upcoming limited re-release of The Little Mermaid.
The success of its 3D release of The Lion King has inspired The Walt Disney Studios to convert four more of its classic animated titles for re-release in the format: Beauty and the Beast, Finding Nemo, Monsters, Inc. and The Little Mermaid.
The press release – which includes release dates – follows the jump.
