The Gospel According to the Little Mermaid

The Little Mermaid is released
from the Disney vault on Oct. 1st.

Remember when Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” was the “new” cartoon in theaters? Believe it or not, this year marks the film’s 25th anniversary of the film. To celebrate, the Disney Studios are releasing the Blu-Ray version of the film on October 1st.
