Apparently, there's a significant screw-up on the new Blu-ray/dvd release. Thank's to "Roccos" over at BR.com for originally bringing these changes/mistakes up:
"I just posted something a little disturbing in the Disney forum and would like to ask anyone who owns a copy of the blu ray if he noticed it too.
Here is what I posted:
I just watched the blu ray and although I'm only half way through, I just had to point out a few things.
1. The "Walt Disney Pictures Presents" always appeared when we see those corals or whatever but now it's when we see the little fish from afar swimming away from the ship.
2. After the shark scene, when we see Ariel and Flounder swimming up to see Scuttle, it used to fade into the very first image of Scuttle, but now it just cuts to him without fading out.
And, brace yourselves for the next one...
Remember when Ariel reaches her hand out at the end of Part of Your World? Then we see her from afar under a beam of light, and then we see Flounder sighing... Now it's the other way around. We first see Flounder and then Ariel is under the light. And it looks awfully weird because then it cuts right to Ariel sitting on the rock singing the last "...world".
