Sleeping Beauty is one my all time Disney classic favorites, I think It was the first Disney movie I saw when I was a girl and it’s because it has all the right ingredients and characters a true love story should have; Princess, Prince and evil fairy in this case Maleficent. Of course after I saw the Maleficent movie I don’t dislike her as much because I learned about her side of the story.
I received a Disney Sleeping Beauty Diamond Edition Blu-ray™, Digital HD + giveaway which made this review possible, as always all opinions are my own.
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.
Although I don’t have any girls, my youngest, LOVES fairy stories, he was my date when we saw Maleficent at the movie theater, so I told him Sleeping Beauty is the other side of the story, well he LOVED it! Although he asked me if he could kiss a girl from his school on the lips because “He truly loves her” (That’s material for a different post)
