Recently I was sent a review copy of the Little Mermaid by Disney and Mango PR. Lily LOVES movies and sadly watches at least one a day when we are home. I try to console myself with the fact that she mostly puts it on and then runs off with her toys so she’s not just sitting in front of the TV the entire time. But when Chloe was first born they were a lifesaver, and continue to be whenever Lily is unwell.
Lily has seen The Little Mermaid before at Granny’s house so I knew she would enjoy watching it. However, when I asked her afterwards (as you will see in the video below), she said she didn’t like it “because it was scary”. I think she just found the parts towards the end scary (with the fight with Ursula) because I watched it again with her another day and she seemed to enjoy the rest of the movie.
The Little Mermaid is a classic, one that I can remember enjoying when younger. I loved that Ariel had red hair like me and I loved the songs. Watching it again with Lily brought back so many great memories!
The new digitally restored, HD versions of the Little Mermaid are available on DVD and BluRay from September 11th, 2013.
Lily’s Review of the Little Mermaid
I tried to do a video review with Lily after she had finished watching the movie one day. Unfortunately it was when she was sick with a cold and wasn’t entirely cooperative. I have the mirror effect on as it was the only way to get her to (almost) concentrate and she doesn’t really like to answer my questions. But it’s a cute video and I’m sure you’ll get the point.
