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.
Sleeping Beauty (50th Anniversary Platinum Edition) - DVD Review

|When it was released in 1959, Sleeping Beauty was not a tremendous hit and nearly bankrupted the Disney studio. It has since been considered a classic, but I've never been as impressed with it as I am with some other films from that era. While the animation is gorgeous, it comes across as a bit sterile. Combined with the powerful, classical score (based on Tchaikovsky's ballet of the same name) it, at times, makes me feel like I'm looking at a book of beautiful pictures while an orchestra plays in the background. ...read the full review|

Its a classic that everyon needs in their collection
This movie has the very typical fairytale plot, but it is still a classic that I cherish. I loved this movie when I was young and my kids to as well. It is a great movie to watch with the family and makes a wonderful holiday gift. I highly recommend this movie to anyone with a younger daughter.
Love the fact that I could find this and other videos, which you can't at other stores
still looks great5/12/2012
I vividly remember the release of Sleeping Beauty. I was old enough to go see it myself - just barely. There I was sitting way up front eating my popcorn and all of a sudden this spectacular dragon materialized right before my eyes. Popcorn forgotten, I was hooked. Cartoons never looked the same to me, and I spent the rest of my life inhaling fantasy and science fiction on a quest for the same thrill.
Beatiful .... just like princess...!!!!5/8/2012
