The movie itself is great, but this particular "Diamond Edition" of the movie is a waste of money. The set includes a digital copy, which comes at a significant additional cost yet when you try to redeem your digital copy, you are told that a digital copy is not available for this movie. The digital copy was 100% the reason why I even bought this particular item, so I'm pretty angry. Why is Disney selling a disc with a feature that is not even available???

I'm so disappointed. I ordered this for my kids because I loved it when I was little. We just got our popcorn ready and I put the DVD in only to have it skip and stop for ten minutes. Ultimately it stopped working all together after about 20 minutes. Thank goodness Netflix was able to save our movie night!

I love this movie even named my daughter after this beautiful mermaid. But the quality of the dvd is poor, cheap and waist of money. I got a movie with a clean package looks like new and original. Turns out its not original. the movie stops at the beganing and then keeps playing but we have missed a few scenes. I pay $11 for this well i retured this money and i went to walmart paid more but at least was an original
Movie. You can even see a water spot on the dvds on the picture i posted. Dnt waist your money on this seller.

It could have been packaged better because the slipcover was damaged

This is one of the top Disney movies to always watch no matter how old you get. I only wish the cover artwork was more like the original VHS cover or more like the 1999 dvd cover. Because they looked more like ariel.

This cover looks nothing like ariel or Ursula. Only the colors looks like but not the face or ariel's hair. Ariel does not have curly hair and she does not have shiny fish fins. Plus Ursula has space between her lips and nose. This is the most horrible disney covers. To be honest the diamond edition blu ray covers dont look anything like the original artwork. The only one that looks like is sleeping beauty. I can't wait till little mermaid comes on 30th anniversary next year 2019. I'm hopping disney releases it again with a better cover and more bonus features as well as 4k and with original artwork like
2018 lady and the tramp blu ray cover. Disney is now getting a little better with original artwork. I'm for sure gonna keep this movie little mermaid diamond edition till the next release which hopefully will be next year.

One of My All-Time Favorites
Verified purchase
When I first saw this film, I fell in love with Ariel; a smart, beautiful young mermaid with determination and resolve. She never gave up on her dream to be human. The song "Part of Your World" is still my favorite on the whole sound track; it captures my heart.

Originally, the movie wasn't filmed in 3D. However, seeing it this way really brings out the characters more vividly than ever before! Despite the diminished popularity of 3D, I'm still a huge fan, and I really enjoy these movies tremendously.

I highly recommend this movie. It's still fun for the whole family, even in this day and age!

Very Nice Blu-Ray Conversion.
Verified purchase
Everyone knows the story and I am sure most people who are purchasing this have already seen the movie so I won't be discussing the movie. What I will be discussing is the 3D conversion.

First of all, the 3D version is kid approved. My little ones both enjoyed the 3D experience. As far as the picture quality goes, I was very impressed. I would give the picture quality a B+ to A-. The 3D was very nice and dimensional and in my opinion added to the movie. There were a few instances where, there was lots of motion on the screen and in those couple of instances, the 3D was distracting. The colors were vibrant and and the picture was very clean.

I already own the Little Mermaid on DVD so the 3D version was the enticement I needed to buy it on blue ray.
