The Little Mermaid turns 25, honored with #disneymusic legacy CD #enmnetwork

I received the Little Mermaid Legacy Collection CD as a member of the Entertainment New Media Network.  No further compensation was received and all opinions are my own.  This post may also contain affiliate links.



I can hardly believe that The Little Mermaid, that beloved Ariel, and all the under the sea characters are 25! I’ll admit it, 25 years ago; I wasn’t in to seeing a Disney animated movie at the theater because I was young and my kids were but day-dream’s. My love of this beautiful movie came years later when my oldest daughter was a toddler. She saw a commercial for The Little Mermaid on TV; and the rest, as they say, was history!

My daughters love of Ariel and Sebastian was immediate and permanent. Watching our daughter delight in this movie at such a young age holds precious memories for us; so when I got selected to review the Walt Disney Records The Legacy Collection CD honoring The Little Mermaid, I was thrilled! As were both my daughters.

About The Legacy Collection The Little Mermaid CD with collectible book:

"The label honors one of the most beloved soundtracks of all time with the 25th anniversary release of Walt Disney Records The Legacy Collection The Little Mermaid available today. The Little Mermaid collection features the songs and score from the film by Oscar®-winning composer Alan Menken and lyricist Howard Ashman on Disc One, twelve work tapes and song demos performed by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman on Disc Two, and a collectible 20-page booklet. Also included are liner notes by Alan Menken, John Musker (Co-writer, Director and Producer, “The Little Mermaid”), and Chris Montan (President of Walt Disney Music)."



Isn’t the CD cover beautiful? The CD and the artwork in the collectible book are lovingly drawn by Lorelay Bove, a visual development artist at Walt Disney Animation Studios. If you watch Disney animated movies, you might recognize her style from movies like Tangled, Winnie the Pooh or Wreck- It Ralph. 

I will treasure this book filled with insights, ideas and facts on the making of The Little Mermaid, including the film, animation and musical scores!

Sneak Peek inside the collectible book

Here’s a cool fact I learned: The Little Mermaid was a milestone in Disney animation, being the first princess musical to be made at Disney since the 1959’s Sleeping Beauty! The book is filled with animation and includes lyrics so you can sing along with songs like Part of your World and Kiss the Girl.

My daughters and I loved listening to the sweeping musical numbers on the CD and singing along to our beloved favorite songs. Now that my oldest is 15; we found it a little challenging to visualize where the musical scores aligned with the movie. We thought it would be fun to buy The Little Mermaid on Blu-Ray, turn down the volume and listen to the CD while watching the movie. 



We loved this beautiful Legacy Collection and invite you to learn more about it and all the Disney music located at the new Disney Music Emporium. You can visit them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter as well.

My favorite movie is Marry poppins. I just love the music in it. When I was a kid i would listen to it over and over

Yona Williams said...

I have always loved Lion King but don't have a favorite character from it. When I was in college, I did name one of my hamsters Simba, so I guess he was my favorite.

Nicole Michelle said...

Time goes by SO fast! I can't believe it went this fast! I still remember being in grade school and seeing students put on a performance of "Under the Sea" - CLASSIC! :)

Linda A. Kinsman said...

Hi Jamie,

Yep, little Ariel is 25 now! We love Mater around here too. Good luck. :)

Linda A. Kinsman said...

Hi Tara,

What a wonderful favorite movie to choose. We love Mary Poppins as well. The music is very catchy. Good luck.

Linda A. Kinsman said...

Hi Yona,

The Lion King and Simba are great choices. :)

Linda A. Kinsman said...

Hi Nicole,

What a cool memory for you. We love singing Under the Sea, so I bet the play was fun.
Good luck.

Susan said...

My current favorite is Frozen. My favorite character in it? Hmmm, probably Anna. Hard to believe Little Mermaid is 25. I do remember when it came out -- I was in my 20s! How time flies. Thanks for such a fun giveaway :)

Frugal and Fun Mom said...

I would say that my favorite Character would have to be Cinderella. There is just something about the story, the dress, and the shoes.

Daisy B said...

My favorite Disney movie is Beauty and the Beast. My son's favorite is The Little Mermaid. We watched it several times over the break! He would just love this!

NYCSingleMom said...

shocking it was 25 years ago one of the best movies was released. my fave movie is Mary Poppins.

Barb Webb said...

Love the Little Mermaid! It was my daughter's favorite movie when she was little. I'm feeling a bit dated now as I made her a Little Mermaid costume when she was just a year old! I have way too many favorite Disney movies to count, would be too hard to just choose one!

Jeannine S said...

My favorite disney movie is Beauty and the beast. Belle was my favorite because I love to read and she loved to read

msvee said...

Tough Cookie Mommy said...

I can't believe the Little Mermaid is turning 25. It is one of my favorite movies but knowing that it is already 25 makes me feel old.

Linda A. Kinsman said...

Hi Susan,

We are Frozen and Anna fans here as well. I'm happy to host this great giveaway. Good luck!

Linda A. Kinsman said...

I'm glad to see Beauty and the Beast and Belle mentioned in comments because it is a classic favorite in our home too.

Good luck!

Linda A. Kinsman said...

Yes Ariel is MsVee! Good luck.

Linda A. Kinsman said...

Hi Maria,

I know what you mean! I started doing some math when I read that Ariel was 25 and thought, well, I think I'm holding up nicely for an oldie!

Good luck!
