The Little Mermaid: Diamond Edition on Blu-Ray Hi Def comes out on October 1! We just watched it tonight and I felt like a kid again. The Little Mermaid is probably my favorite Disney movie ever. To celebrate this release the film was shown in select theaters across the country, one of them NY’s Walter Reade Theater. I have some great pics to share with you! I love this one of Samuel Wright (voice of Sebastian), Jodi Benson (Ariel), and Ron Clements (writer and director).

September 21, 2013 New York – Jodi Bensen (voice of Ariel), Samuel Wright (voice of Sebastian) and Ron Clements (writer/producer) graced the blue carpet today at the exclusive film screening of “The Little Mermaid,” in celebration of the Diamond Edition in-home release, at the Walter Reade Theater in New York. Amongst the film’s original talent were special guests: Bethenny Frankel (TV’s “Bethenny,” “The Real Housewives of NYC”), Constantine Maroulis (Rock of Ages), Amare Stoudemire (NY Knicks), Matt Walton (TV’s “One Life To Live”), Marco Canora (Chef & contestant on TV’s “Next Iron Chef”), Aviva Drescher (“The Real Housewives of NYC”), Rebecca Minkoff (Fashion Designed), Stacey Bendet (Alice + Olivia Designer), Aimie Wang (CEO Alexander Wang), Alicia Quarles (E! Entertainment Correspondent) and more.
Ariel (voiced by Jodi Benson), is a free-spirited mermaid, who is off on the adventure of a lifetime with her best friend, the adorable Flounder (voiced by Jason Marin), and the reggae-singing Caribbean crab Sebastian (voiced by Samuel E. Wright) at her side. But it will take all of her courage and determination to make her dreams come true—and save her father’s beloved kingdom from the sneaky sea witch Ursula (voiced by Pat Carroll).
