'Sleeping Beauty' Released from the Disney Vault

By Janelle Tipton, The Walt Disney Studios
It’s a dreamy day for Sleeping Beauty fans with new home entertainment and music releases now available in celebration of the animated classic’s 55th anniversary! Adapted from Charles Perrault’s 17th-century version of the fairy tale, Sleeping Beauty was an incredible undertaking that stands the test of time. Three hundred animators and artists spent six years making the film and generated nearly one million drawings and other pieces of art in the process. Its production design and artistry continue to be admired today, and it also spawned, in this writer’s opinion, one of the most memorable villains in movie history. (You know who I’m talking about, but as we discovered in this summer’s Maleficent, maybe she isn’t so villainous after all.)
