About Little Mermaid
The Little Mermaid began its life as a short story by Hans Christian Andersen, and captivated children for ages. Though for Disney, the ending of the fairytale was far from the happy one they wanted to tell, so they took inspiration from the original and wove their own narrative. The story of Ariel and Eric, the now-named mermaid and her prince, in turn took its place as a memorable tale for modern children the world over. VHS was the dominant media form at the time of the movie's release, and as a result, many copies are available from eBay's reliable sellers. Disney's habit of re-releasing their classics has ensured that fans are able to get a Little Mermaid DVD as well, and enjoy the film with a crisper look, thanks to technological restoration. Whether you're a fan of the movie or looking to see it for the first time, The Little Mermaid demonstrates the distinct passion and joy that Disney brings to all their films.
