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.

I had this edition previously but lost the dvd so I ordered this one for my daughter, compared to the other prices this one was alittle less expensive but its definitly brand new and works just fine.

The little mermaid
Verified purchase
When my daughter was a little girl, this movie came out and it was her favorite. She and her friends would dance around the house singing the songs... it's just a really sweet fairy tale - and as with fairly tales, there are some scary elements. Classic disney animation. We purchase all our movies via stream any more because there isn't a DVD to store and you access from nearly anywhere and/or download when you want.

Could have been worse
Verified purchase
Could have been more securely packaged. Was being knocked around inside an empty box. From all the jostling, the cd dislodged from it's clip and was sliding around inside the case. I had to remove the shrink wrap, inspect the cd for scratches and put it back in place before gifting which was not ideal because I had to gift it without the shrink wrap. Luckily, the cd was okay.
