Sleeping Beauty has long been one of my favorite Disney animations, it comes in second only to Beauty and the Beast but holds the top spot as far as their “classic” animation goes. It’s just a beautifully crafted fairy tale with brilliant atmosphere, delightful music, and a pretty badass villain. And yes I will totally admit that Prince Phillip was one of my first crushes. Hawt.

Despite removing all evidence of the time it was made, this Blu-ray presentation was impressive. I grew up watching this film on a VHS tape that was worn out from so many spins in the VCR, so when I could actually see backgrounds and all of the intricate detail that went into the environment it was like seeing it for the first time. I had the biggest grin on my face as they escape from “The Forbidden Mountain” all the way through the end of the film. I love it!

Here’s most of that ending for your viewing pleasure.
