Here's another clip from the "Alan Menken & the Leading Ladies Song" bonus feature: https://www.awn.com/news/exclusive-watc ... le-mermaid

I found all the Playbill interviews quite interesting. As for Mother Gothel, I always thought she didn't have any real affection for Rapunzel and was just being a good actress when she was sweet to her, but I guess it makes sense she would become a bit fond of her after all these years, even though she's so selfish and vain.


I honestly thought that there was a little part of her that really cared. Even on Rapunzel's side, she clearly grown some fondness for her even after she found everything out (she reaches for her after Mother Gothel falls out of the tower). I always thought that was a sophisticated, nuanced, and tragic villain-victim relationship, I thought it was brilliant! It's one of the many reasons I love the film so much.

I agree with you. The only love Gothel has for Rapunzel is the love any person has for people around them all the time--that feeling when you miss somebody you didn't even like when they're not around anymore. That's not maternal love though, which would've made for a more complex, better villain. Rapunzel might as well be a potted plant to Gothel.

When Donna Murphy says Mother Gothel unexpectedly came to love Rapunzel, I take it she means maternal love.

Reviews about the 4K presentation of The Little Mermaid are positive so far.

I'll be buying this Little Mermaid for sure! I'm hoping it looks the best it ever has! And maybe one day I'll get a 4K player and TV so I should pick that up too? Does the 4K come with a regular Blu-ray?

Well, this is surprising. I really expected them to use the same restoration as the Diamond Edition, but I see they went ahead and re-restored it. The colors are noticeably different in the screen caps they provided in the reviews.

If you have a previous version on Movies Anywhere, and you buy the new version (Diamond to Signature, for example), your Movies Anywhere account won't receive the new extras, right?

I hope somebody does a color comparison between the Blu-Ray and 4K editions.

I am curious too if those who own the previous film will automatically get upgraded with the extras.

Yes.

Thank you! Then I guess I will buy the 4K since it comes with a Blu-ray.
