I can remember watching Sleeping Beauty with my youngest, Jillian when she was a little girl. We played Sleeping Beauty for days upon days after watching that dvd. She would be the princess and pretend she was sleeping, awaiting her prince to come (me). Receiving this new combo pack was a true treat for us. She may not remember those days of play long ago, but I sure do.
We loved watching this beautifully made copy together on a dull and cold Sunday afternoon.
Look for Sleeping Beauty, the Diamond Edition to be released on October 7th.
“Sleeping Beauty” tells the wondrous tale of a princess cursed by an evil fairy, protected by three loving fairies and, ultimately, saved by “true love’s kiss.” Featuring the voice talents of renowned opera singer Mary Costa as Sleeping Beauty and Disney stalwart Eleanor Audley as the evil fairy, Maleficent, the film’s vibrant visuals were created by a team that included Milt Kahl and Ollie Johnston, two of Disney’s legendary Nine Old Men and an Academy Award®-nominated score, 1959, adapted from the incandescent music of Peter Tchaikovsky. “Sleeping Beauty” is the sixteenth animated feature in the Disney animated features canon and was the last animated feature produced by Walt Disney to be based upon a fairy tale. It is the tenth film released as part of Disney’s prestigious Blu-ray Diamond Collection.
