The Making of the Little Mermaid (Howard Ashman Interviewed!!)

edited January 2012 in Disney

This is more than just a random discussion about The Little Mermaid; it's a gift to all fans of Howard Ashman, especially to you, Sarah.

Seeing how The Little Mermaid will be enjoying a theatrical re-release with a 3D makeover, I thought it appropriate to post this. It's something I found a while back while surfing around on YouTube. It's a rare television special about the making of The Little Mermaid:

If you're interested in the whole thing (and I'm guessing you will be), enjoy all three parts via this video. If you're interested in seeing Howard Ashman and Alan Menken in an interview and hearing him SPEAK, skip ahead to 8:47. He speaks a couple of other times in the special too, so be sure to watch all three parts.

If Howard's picture is worth a thousand words, then how much is it worth to hear his voice?

    There is some more of that interview on the audio commentary of The Little Mermaid Platinum Edition DVD, sounds like it's from the same one. Whoever had the idea of including not only Alan Menken, Ron Clements and John Musker in the commentary, but also clips of Howard from the interview, is awesome - I thank him/her. I was so surprised and happy to hear it when I was listening to the commentary track!
    I'd love to see the whole interview in it's entirety.
