    Looks like Disney have bollocksed up The Little Mermaid now as well. The disc is released this week and next in several Euro countries, and some errors have already been discovered:

    If at the very least the most obvious change is not rectified, either in time for the U.S. release or via a replacement, I won't be buying it. I know this film much too well not to let the "new" editing completely ruin it.

    Me too. I contacted Disney US about a replacement and they told me to bugger off and contact the UK business instead. The thing is, the UK disc drops the original soundtrack so that wasn't an option. I just try and zone out during the section with the dropped lines. Pinocchio is due for a Diamond release like Sleeping Beauty at some point so I'll rebuy it then (assuming they don't f*** something else up).

    I passed on THE SWORD IN THE STONE and I have no interest in THE LITTLE MERMAID, which I consider junk from the get-go.

    I understand Disney is working on THE JUNGLE BOOK (1967) now. Let's hope they get it right.

    Wow. That is a bad goof. In the new cut, when she's floating back down to the rock, her mouth is still animated to the lyrics to the song but there's no longer any vocals. I just don't get it. How did this happen? Likely an editing mistake when the film was being converted to 3D.

    It really does make one scratch their head as to how something like that (the re-edit in The Little Mermaid) could happen.

    It is so...random.

    It was a while ago i read it in an interview with him, can't remember the site but it's out there in internet land, he also has his forum and maybe that's where i read it, he also re-iterates the advantages of the 4K film scan in another interview for True Grit, included below.

    Disney pretend the mistakes don't exist and they don't pull the release, i guess that's what happens now and instead they tell people a few months later to send their copies in for a fixed replacement, of course i'm guessing based on their past history with all this.
