"The Little Mermaid" will have limited engagement at El Capitan in L.A. before Platinum Edition DVD release

Posted on Friday, August 25th, 2006. Last Updated on Friday, August 25th, 2006 5:26 PM by Scott Jentsch

Disney's The Little Mermaid is being released on DVD on October 3rd in a 2-disc Platinum Edition, but it's getting the big-screen treatment in September at the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood, California.

Animation Magazine is reporting that the digital restored film will play at the El Capitan Theater from Sept. 7th - Sept. 24th, along with a live appearance by Ariel geared towards children.

The Sept. 7 opening night screening on will include an informative filmmaker's panel at 6:30 p.m. Hosted by veteran Disney animation producer Don Hahn (Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Who Framed Roger Rabbit), the panel will include the film's directors John Musker & Ron Clements, supervising animator Glen Keane, Ariel voicer Jodi Benson and Ariel model Sherri Stoner. Attendees will also get a sneak preview of Disney's newest animated short, The Little Match Girl, an adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen story directed by Roger Allers (The Lion King).

If getting to Hollywood in September isn't going to work for you, you can pre-order the Special Edition DVD from Amazon.com for $18.27, which is 39% off the $29.99 list price.
