This enchanting Disney masterpiece, Sleeping Beauty, has comes to Blu-Ray™, Digital Download and DVD from 2nd June 2014. With Maleficent, a new studio film about the ultimate villain starring Angelina Jolie currently in cinemas now, there has never been a better time to revisit this must-have classic.
Sleeping Beauty was Disney’s 16th animated classic and was initially released in 1959 and it took nearly a decade to produce. This magical and timeless story begins with the birth of Princess Aurora, the precious daughter of King Stefan and his wife. To celebrate the arrival of the Princess, three good fairies – Flora, Fauna & Merryweather bestow gifts of magic on Aurora, but an evil sorceress named Maleficent places a curse upon the little Princess – that she will die on her 16th birthday after touching the poisoned spindle of a spinning wheel. Merryweather tries to undo the damage by casting a spell that will allow the Princess to awake from an ageless sleep with a kiss from her one true love. It runs for approximately 75 minutes.
