Nic whats that photo about??
More like peter PANTS
It's been delayed in the UK until March 12th btw, and 3rd version? I don't think so, the only one I know of is a Limited Issue
Isn't this going to be the 3rd release of this?  Well I am waiting for the 2 Disc Editons of the Animated Version of "101 Dalmatians" & "Pinocchio"
I had the original Little Mermaid DVD and compared to the Platinum edition it was awful. S

And the guy b***hing about it on the nerd forum is watching it on a 106" screen "from 1.6 screen widths distance" (err compensating for something me thinks!) No bloody wonder it's "blurry".
And 1.6 whatever...if you're watching something on a screen that big you should be on the darkside of the moon if you didn't want things to look blurry.

Nicola's verdict: That guy needs a girlfriend.

Oh and "Call the Disney 1800 number"...MY ARSE. GET A LIFE!

See you set me off now.
Nic why would she kick herself? The new DVD for the mermaid wasnt all that good afterall.. I read it in the HTForum
http://www.hometheaterforum.com/htf/showthread....

The Little Mermaid 2-disc DVD proved to be very disappointing from an audio/videophile perspective. After years of waiting for the ultimate disc presentation, and after a series of DVD triumphs with other Disney classics like Bambi, Cinderella, and Lady and the Tramp, The Little Mermaid greets expectant viewers with a surprisingly lackluster video presentation and an egregiously molested 5.1 DEHT mix without any provision of the original mix whatsoever. Bonus material is the saving grace of this 2-disc offering, but sadly the actual feature-film leaves untold volumes to be desired. While I don’t expect that my critical review will impact Disney’s profits in any appreciable way, I do encourage my videophile/audiophile comrades to make their displeasure known. And even if you find yourself purchasing this disc for completionist reasons, to keep the kids happy, or because you already sold your old disc on ebay and don’t want to go without, there’s nothing to stop you from calling that little 1-800 number listed on the back of your DVD packaging to let Disney know how much it bothers you that they copped out with the image restoration and didn’t even bother to provide you with the original soundtrack to this very special film.

What's most alarming about the problems with the audio and video of The Little Mermaid is that the decisions that caused them could just as easily plague any HD Blu-ray release. 1080p and lossless audio won't fix the problems with the digital clean-up and tasteless 5.1 remix. The time to teach Disney about your expecations for presentations that remain faithful to the source is NOW. There probably won't be as many opportunities to repurchase this title again and again in successive HD formats. If Disney can't learn how to properly handle its film library in SD, the future of HD is looking grim.

NOT Recommended
UK release date: February 5th 2007
It was originally slated for 2009
It seems like that ebay poster just pulled the year 2009 out of his arse...hehe
it get's me down when eBay sellers trick people into thinking it's not going to be released for another 3 years http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Walt-Disneys-Peter-Pan-GE...
Not all people are geeks like us lot though so it is pretty easy to rip someone off. Did the same with The Little Mermaid when I found out it was being re-released. Bet she's kicking herself now. Ho-Ho-Ho.
thats why I thought nobody would buy it ^^^ talk about non-informed consumers
And this is why I sold mine! Mwuahahahahahahahaha
