Excellent Video on a movie it's age
Characters forward and the backgrounds truly in the background - looks very three D. Excellent audio and extra features great too. The Story of Tchaikovsky - very entertaining and well done - other special features great as well.
Verified purchase: Yes | Condition: Used

There was some bad news here, but some VERY GOOD NEWS too.
Spoiler alert! This is a unique review.
The 2 disc set of "Sleeping Beauty" in Blu-Ray form is a marvelous video update from Disney. The particular package which I received contained a blemish on Disc 2 (probably caused in manufacturing) which should have cause the original owner to return the set for replacement. I have tried the disc in 3 different Blu-Ray players (Samsung, SONY, and RCA) and none would even recognize it as a valid disc. I suspect that the seller was not even aware of the problem.
Now the unique good news. The material on Disc #2 mostly repeated content from the earlier 2-disc DVD edition that I already owned, and reports indicate that much of it was not actually HD. My exclusive interest was in Disc #1, not for the feature (which is probably wonderful), but for the Academy Award winning "Grand Canyon"! On the earlier release, this full scope Tru-Life Adventure was not even enhanced, so the final resolution was nothing to brag about. The content on THIS SET is digitally clean-up, enhanced, and full 1080! Since the original footage was only 16mm this is probably as good as it's going to get! And let me assure you if you haven't seen it that it deserves the OSCAR it won! I would have paid the asking price for this set just to get these 30-minutes. So let me sincerely thank you for it.Read full review

SLEEPING BEAUTY BD with spanish 2008 track and subs
For all of us spanish speaking followers of Disney, it has become a hard task to find spanish audio and subs in the Sleeping Beauty BD release.
US versions do not carry spanish at all, the mexican edition is out of the counter -rejected by the public for not bringing the original spanish ost- and in Argentina, the case offering them is flawed, and the movie disc inside is the exact american one, only the extras bd carrying the spanish subs.
The only edition carrying the audio and subs in spanish happens to be the canadian version, and in fact, it does have those. It can be identified by a green small circle with a tiny white leaf inside, at the back of the case and in every disc, and some tiny lettering at the back that claims the version was made in/for Canada.
There is also the european version in Spain, but it is coded zone B. There was never an original castillian version for the movie, they always had the latin version in europe, but not sure if they made a castillian soundtrack for the 2008 release.
The 2008 spanish audio version is not bad for choruses and narration but, for all of us having memories of the original track with the glorious song in the woods and mean Maleficient's unforgettable character, as ell as the kind fairies, well, it is true, the new one can be trash.
ALL the rest, extras and picture quality included, is simply oustanding and a pleasure to watch from A to Z.
Hope we can see the original mexican spanish soundtrack put in a new release soon. Miss that bad.
Here is a link for those wanting to help in that regard.Read full review

Quite possible the best Disney animated feature ever made.
Quite simply the BEST of the Disney Classic Animated Movies. Visually stunning and with lovely songs, it all builds up to the most exciting 10 minutes of animation ever created: Prince Phillip's heroic fight-to-the-death with the "Mistress of All Evil", Maleficent.
Great picture and very good sound (considering that it was tweaked from audio tracks were 50 years old) and an amazing 2nd disc that's chock full of Sleeping Beauty-related images, videos, games and more.
If you haven't seen it, get it on Blu-ray!

Great, espcially on Blu-Ray
"Sleeping Beauty" is a classic of American animation, though I appreciate it more as an artistic achievement than as an entertainment piece (I wasn't a fan of it as a kid). The film was always designed to look and sound spectacular, and now on Blu-Ray this is more true than ever.
A full HD restoration to the film's original 2.55:1 negative aspect ratio, 7.1 surround sound, and more special features than I'll ever get through in one weekend all make for a great purchase.
