LittleMermaidcoverDisney announced that The Little Mermaid will be released in HD for the first time on October 1 in a Diamond Edition that includes a Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, DVD, Digital Copy, and “Music.” We can guess that since “CD” wasn’t used that the songs will be downloadable.

The 1989 classic started a Broadway-style revival in Disney animation, with show-stopping songs in a story loosely based on the fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen.
