Sharing The Little Mermaid with my kids

I had a chance to sit down and watch this film all over again, plus show it to my kids for the first time. They were hooked! When I asked my son what his favorite part was, he told me he loved it when Sebastian was in the kitchen with the chef and was getting chased all over. My daughter loves when Ariel changes from a mermaid to a princess. She had her Ariel doll with her while we were watching the movie and every time Ariel would change to a princess she would change her doll. When she changed back to a mermaid, she changed her doll back. It was really cute to watch!

The Little Mermaid Bonus Features

One of the things I absolutely love about the Diamond Edition disc is the bonus features. I’m not usually a bonus feature type of gal, but I was really intrigued by some of the content on this disc. One of my favorites was {spoiler alert!!} learning about live action shots to help with the animation. I never knew they actually filmed people acting out the scenes to help the animators draw them more life like. It was a really interesting feature to watch and learn about!
