Walt Disney’s Sleeping Beauty
With the upcoming release of Disney’s Maleficent hitting theaters May 30, why not catch up with the Disney classic that started it all and created one of the most evil villains of all time?
When the young princess Aurora is cursed at birth by the evil fairy Maleficent, the baby is kidnapped by a trio of good fairies who raise the girl themselves, hoping to avoid the spell’s fulfillment. Nevertheless, at the age of 16, the beautiful Aurora falls into a deep sleep that can only be awakened by a kiss from her betrothed, Prince Phillip. Knowing that Phillip intends to save Aurora, Maleficent takes him prisoner. When the good fairies launch a rescue attempt, Maleficent transforms herself into a spectacular fire-breathing dragon, forcing Phillip to defeat her in mortal combat.
This film tells of the the classic story that true love conquers all with true love’s first kiss. This is certainly something you would want to watch with the family over and over again. A true classic at its best.
Sleeping Beauty is available for checkout on DVD at the VC/UHV Library Media Center on the 2nd floor. You’ll find it in our Feature Films collection.
