Disney Sleeping Beauty: The Diamond Edition

We love Disney in our home - maybe we aren't as fanatical as some, but I would say we are up there.  We have grown to own quite an extensive Disney dvd collection, (and still have the old vhs collection in the basement.)  I especially love it when an old classic is re-released, it gives me the opportunity to (re)introduce a movie that my children may not know, or may of forgotten about.    This October keep your eyes peeled for Sleeping Beauty:The Diamond Edition on DVD and Blu-ray Combo Pack.  

The story is the same, yet it has been beautifully restored with picture and sound.  The new release even includes some bonus features.  Sleeping Beauty is a true Disney classic that has been loved for generations.

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.
