Movie Review and GIVEAWAY: The Little Mermaid, now on digital {ends 8/3}

*Disclosure: I was given a digital copy of this movie in exchange for this post. The opinions expressed here, however, are my own.

The new Little Mermaid is now available on digital, as of July 25, and it will be available on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD on September 19th!

I saw this one in the theater and really loved it - I gave it 4.25 out of 5 stars in my Instagram video review.

I did feel that both Awkwafina, as Scuttle the seagull, stole the show in all the scenes she was in, as well as Melissa McCarthy as Ursula, and I can't wait to watch the film again now that I own it. Halle Bailey also did a great job as Ariel.

I also did not think this was really a kids' movie, unless your kids are older (maybe 7+ or 8+). For young kids, I thought some of the scenes might be a little scary.

Read on to see how you can win one of THREE digital codes I have up for grabs!
