Performers, Cast and Crew:
USA Today - 09/19/1997
"...One of Disney's most elaborate extravaganzas..."
Movieline's Hollywood Life - 09/01/2003
"...Arguably the most important film in the formidable Disney oeuvre..."
Variety - 09/15/2003
"...Walt Disney's cornerstone opus. If you think you know it too well to bother taking another look, this presentation will give you Technicolor pause..."
Entertainment Weekly - 10/24/2008
"[The soundtrack] keyed to Tchaikovsky's lush ballet score, has a majestic heft."
New York Times - 10/13/2008
"With its two-dimensional figures and flattened perspectives, the Walt Disney classic SLEEPING BEAUTY imitates the look of an illuminated manuscript from the Middle Ages, but its bright, buzzing colors...are unmistakably those of midcentury America."
Empire - 11/01/2008
5 stars out of 5 -- "This is the experimental, boundary-pushing Disney....Its spare and elegant world lingering with you long after the lovers dance into the sunset."
A 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.
