Waking Sleeping Beauty



By the mid-1980s, the fabled animation studios of Walt Disney had fallen on hard times. The artists were polarized between newcomers hungry to innovate and old timers not yet ready to relinquish control.

The conditions produced a series of box office flops and pessimistic forecasts. Maybe the best days of animation were over. Maybe the public didn't care. Only a miracle or a magic spell could produce a happy ending. "Waking Sleeping Beauty" is no fairy tale.

It's the true story of how Disney regained its magic with hits like "The Little Mermaid," "Beauty and the Beast," "Aladdin," "The Lion King" over a 10-year period.

Starring Tim Burton, John Lasseter, Don Bluth

Directed by Don Hahn

Running Time - 1:26
Genre - Documentary
Opened in Theaters - Friday, March 26th, 2010


PG
some thematic elements and brief mild language

. . . Dragon looks cute, I agree, and maybe Eclipse (why is it listed as a documentary? It doesn't sound like one).

The only one I want to see is How to Train Your Dragon, and I will most likely see it on DVD.
