Disney’s The Little Mermaid: Diamond Edition
Rediscover the Film That Gave Voice to a Whole Generation
On October 1, 2013, Disney’s The Little Mermaid: Diamond Edition will splash its way into homes for the very first time in Blu-ray™ hi-definition with new, breathtaking picture and sound restoration!
A whole new generation will discover life under the sea when Disney’s The Little Mermaid: Diamond Edition comes to home video this fall. Ariel (voiced by Jodi Benson), is a free-spirited mermaid, who is off on the adventure of a lifetime with her best friend, the adorable Flounder (voiced by Jason Marin), and the reggae-singing Caribbean crab Sebastian (voiced by Samuel E. Wright) at her side. But it will take all of her courage and determination to make her dreams come true—and save her father’s beloved kingdom from the sneaky sea witch Ursula (voiced by Pat Carroll).
I am looking forward to laughing on June 11th when these two new “hilarious” comedies come in to my home to review on Blu-ray. This 2 movie collection comes with both “The Emperor’s New Groove” and “Kronk’s New Groove” so you get double the fun. I have never seen either of these movies which makes it even more fun to see the unexpected little comedy comments, double meanings that Disney is famous for putting in their movies.
The 3-disc Blu-ray Combo Pack includes both feature films on a single Blu-ray disc plus each film on individual DVDs. Disney has packed it with their cast of voices/characters with David Spade leading the group as the voice of Emperor Kuzco, John Goodman as Pasha, Eartha Kitt as Yzma and all three of these are play these voices in both films. There will be even more recognized voices for you to distinguish but you need to watch (or listen) to find out more!
One great move Disney made with these movies is having Sting provide the Original Song. It was such a great song it actually was nominated for an Academy Award in 2000.
Chances are that if you are like myself and the other writers here at Chip and Co., you are a Disney Addict. We have yet to find a cure, but the symptoms of this condition are rather obvious. Most likely your own friends and family have pointed them out to you or questioned your sanity a time or two. Still not sure?
Check out my 10 Ways to Know If You’re an Disney Addict: Part 2! If you missed Part 1 check it out here.
1. You can navigate the Disney parks better than you can your own hometown.
2. You are known to randomly break into a Disney song without warning.
3. Visits to other theme parks are just disappointing.
Back in September, I posted a press release for the movie, Heavyweights. You can imagine how hard it has been for me to wait for that movie to arrive on my front step. The day has arrived! Children of the 90′s REJOICE!!!!!
Disney’s Heavyweights is finally on Blu-Ray and it is 90sriffic!!!! I feel like I’ve been transplanted back to a time where video tapes were the rage, summer camp genre movie reigned supreme, and the quintessential food fight snuck its way into every movie! I am at home with the kids of “Camp Hope.” This movie holds a special place in my heart, so it goes without question that I give it an automatic 2 (Mickey gloved) thumbs up! I can’ t wait to tell you my favorite features of this Blu-ray version! Let’s “do it to it!”
Gerry, and overweight teen is sent away for a summer at Camp Hope, a camp for overweight teens. Originally, he dreads going to camp, but he quickly learns within the first hours that the camp isn’t really all that bad. For the past 32 years the lovable Bushkin’s have run Camp Hope and given overweight kids a dream summer filled with go-karts, caring counselors, and of course, THE BLOB! The tradition of greatness at Camp Hope comes to a screeching halt when the campers discover that the Bushkin’s have been forced to sell the camp to a crazy fitness guru, Tony Perkins (Ben Stiller). Tony and his crew makeover the camp into a miserable place. Campers are offered zero fun or food and Tony goes to great lengths to force them to lose weight. Finally, the campers and counselors alike have had enough and they unite to take back the camp! This is a funny movie, full of great memories and good times and it should definitely take a place in your collection!
Here are some funny clips from the movie:
