The enchanting tale of SLEEPING BEAUTY, a beautiful princess, a heroic prince, a fire-breathing dragon and magic, has been restored to its original glory. Walt Disney's timeless fairy tale, SLEEPING BEAUTY, awakens a new generation of little princesses (and heroic little princes!) to enjoy.
You and you children will delight in this timeless love story of good verses evil.
Once upon a time, in a kingdom far away, a beautiful princess was born. Princess Aurora, fated by a terrible curse to prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and die at the age of 16, falls into an enchanted slumber to become SLEEPING BEAUTY.
Princess Aurora's magical friends, the Good fairies Flora, Fauna and Merryweather do their best to protect the Princess by raising her in a forest cottage disguised as Briar Rose. Despite their loving attempts, the evil fairy Maleficent finds Aurora and the spell is cast.
The good fairies put everyone in the castle into a deep sleep until the curse can be broken. It is only with the aid of the gallant Prince Phillip, who vows to save his adored princess that the wicked Maleficent, transformed into a menacing, fire-breathing dragon, is destroyed, and the SLEEPING BEAUTY is awakened by his kiss.
SLEEPING BEAUTY is Disney's most luxuriant feature, with unparalleled attention to detail and bold stylisation in the use of colour, character, and background design.
Musically inspiring and engaging, SLEEPING BEAUTY'S score is adapted from the memorable music of Tchaikovsky, garnering an Academy Award® nomination* for Best Song in 1959.
