Sleeping Beauty may have been the first Disney film I ever saw as a child although something in my head tells me it wasn’t, either way it was my most favourite and still is.
Sleeping Beauty stands out from all other Disney films because of the beautiful animation and design (thanks to Eyvind Earle), you can freeze it at any point and have a picture. It’s just such a wonderful looking film. Added to this you have just some of the best characters such as Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather ( I always liked her best) and also Maleficent (who aside from Ursula is the best Villian in a Disney film). The crowing glory of the film has to be the score adapted from Tchaikovsky’s ballet.
