Disney's Sleeping Beauty: Diamond Edition

Sleeping Beauty Diamond Edition Bluray
The tale of Sleeping Beauty was one of my favorite when I was a child, and watching it only makes me feel young again. I remember most of the scenes and honestly I am truly happy that this Disney’s Sleeping Beauty Diamond Edition Release brings more enhancements than changes to the movie I know from my childhood. Sleeping Beauty is a story about Princess Aurora cursed by an evil fairy, protected by three loving fairies and, ultimately, saved by “true love’s kiss.” Rich colors, nice voices and clear sound make this movie like a new one. The Tchaikovsky music theme goes through the whole movie, so that you want to sing and dance yourself. The pretty thing is that you know already every scene and what is going to happen next but want to watch it over and over again. After seeing Maleficent earlier this year, Sleeping Beauty’ villain does not look so dramatic. Though Teddy when first looked at the cover said “This is Maleficent”, giving Princess Aurora only second mention.

Sleeping Beauty is filled with romantic moments, very funny and even scary ones. We enjoyed the scene when Aurora dances with forest animals and how she meets Prince Phillip. I also like Prince Phillip’s phrase which sounds familiar for many generation of parents and children: “Now, father, you're living in the past. This is the 14th century!”

Sleeping Beauty

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.

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.

Disney’s Sleeping Beauty 2-Disc Diamond Edition Blu-ray Superset (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy) contains digitally restored picture and sound, a digital copy of the film, and a variety of magical new bonus features, including "Once Upon A Parade," in which "Modern Family" star Sarah Hyland tells us the tale of Walt Disney World’s new Festival Of Fantasy Parade, "Art of Evil: Generations Of Disney Villains," a legacy piece spotlighting Disney’s favorite villain animator and Maleficent creator Marc Davis, and "@DisneyAnimation: Artists in Motion," in which Walt Disney Animation Visual Development artist Brittney Lee goes through the process of creating a three dimensional sculpture of Maleficent, completely out of paper.

Additional all-new bonus features include never-before-seen deleted scenes “The Fair” (with Deleted Character The Vulture,) “The Curse is Fulfilled” and “Arrival Of Maleficent,” plus the Beauty-Oke sing-along to “Once Upon A Dream.” The Blu-ray Superset also includes classic DVD bonus features and more!
