Can’t wait to see this project. Little Mermaid is one of my most beloved films.
The 4K restoration for the Blu-ray release is excellent, and perhaps the best/ least tampered with Disney classic to come to the format (that beautiful grain), but it still has been manipulated.

Isn’t until later this year. If you mean the 2013 Diamond Edition it was absolutely tampered with to the Nth degree - screenshots are here.
