THE LITTLE MERMAID Giveaway – 30th Anniversary Signature Edition

When THE LITTLE MERMAID debuted in theaters in 1989, I was a college undergraduate taking a film studies class. The professor told us this was a new renaissance in Disney animation. When our first daughter was born in 1998, she latched onto THE LITTLE MERMAID as her favorite movie, and it ran on a near continuous loop in our home (we still have the VHS tape for memories). Now, for its 30th anniversary, the two-time Academy Award-winner (Best Original Score and Best Original Song “Under the Sea,” 1989) THE LITTLE MERMAID gets the Walt Disney Signature Edition Blu-ray treatment with never-before-seen special features and a sing-along mode (like you weren’t singing along already). We’ve partnered with Disney to giveaway a copy of THE LITTLE MERMAID to our readers. Use the rafflecopter widget below to enter, and download the printable activity sheets as well.
