The legend that transcends time begins with the glorious celebration of Princess Aurora's birth - a joyful event that makes Maleficent, one of the most spectacular villains ever, extremely jealous. As the years pass and the princess grows into a beautiful and graceful young woman, three Good Fairies do their best to protect Aurora. But, alas, on her 16th birthday, Aurora pricks her finger on an enchanted spinning wheel and falls under Maleficent's spell and into a deep sleep. Only brave Prince Phillip can defeat a fire-breathing dragon and battle his way to the tower to awaken the princess from her dreams.
Setting the standard
- Sleeping Beauty review by CP Customer
Disney has always set the standard for DVD releases and looks set to do it again with this Platinum Edition of Sleeping Beauty. It has been a long time since I have seen this film, but it is a lavish piece of animation like no other. The medieval styling is exceptional and distinctive. Sleeping Beauty may be 50 years old yet Disney have gone through this restoration frame by frame to produce an spotless 1080 effort. The audio has been enhanced but you can hear the limitations of the speech in certain areas. The film itself remains a classic, never outstaying its welcome and the extra content adds to your appreciation. You can view the restoration, the original ideas and the famous Disney 7 animators. Visit the original Sleeping Beauty attraction or hear John Lasseter's commentary, and more awaits. A remarkable achievement in every sense, Sleeping Beauty remains an enduring classic for all the family.
