Sleeping Beauty screens this weekend
AFTER a beautiful princess is born, everyone gathers to exchange gifts.
Everything is perfectly fine until an unwanted guest appears, Maleficent.
The witch put a spell on the young princess and tells her she will fall asleep at sunset on the evening of her 16th birthday, and that the only way to wake her up were the tears from here true love.
Finally the day comes. Will she be left to sleep forever?
Sleeping Beauty is an American animated musical fantasy film produced by Walt Disney, based on The Sleeping Beauty by Charles Perrault.
The 16th Disney animated feature film, it was released to theatres on January, 1959, by Buena Vista Distribution.
This was the last Disney adaptation of a fairytale for some years because of its initial mixed critical reception and under-performance at the box office; the studio did not return to the genre until 30 years later, after Walt Disney died in 1966, with the release of The Little Mermaid (1989).
- At Ballina Fair Cinemas this Saturday and Sunday from 9.50am. $8.
