Editor's NoteA beautiful princess born in a faraway kingdom is destined by a terrible curse to prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and fall into a deep sleep which can only be awakened by true love's first kiss. Though the titular princess is on par with the rest of Disney's essential heroines, most of the fun arises from the trio of charming fairies entrusted with her care: Flora, Fauna, and Meriweather. Meanwhile the evil Malificent may just be Disney's most chilling villainess. This classic makes wondrous use of Tchaikovsky's same-titled ballet score, which earned SLEEPING BEAUTY an Academy Award nomination for Best Scoring of a Musical Picture.

Better sound and video.1/5/2013
This blue ray version provided much better sound and video than the dvd version.
This is a great Disney classic and it looks even better on my 50 inch TV in Blu Ray. I hate how Disney only releases these for a certain amount of time and then it drives the price of the ones in the "vault" through the roof.
It plays hard-to-get!9/14/2010
The Blu-ray lead-in has you wade thru 7 or 8 previews that one advances thru with the chapter-advance button on the remote, definitly a hassle. The movie is first-class vintage animation without CGI, and the color is brilliant. It'll make a nice gift for the young-in-heart.
We loved Sleeping Beauty11/10/2008
One of Disney's classics...they just don't make them like this anymore. As a family we enjoyed sitting down and watching the Blu-ray edition of Sleeping Beauty. I also appreciate that Disney included a digitally restored version of the film on DVD, so then my four-year old is able to enjoy it over and over again, without me going through the hastle of setting up the PS3 to watch the blu-ray. Thanks Disney!
Beautiful blu ray disc!11/10/2008
