At the time of its release (1959), SLEEPING BEAUTY was the most expensive animated film Walt Disney himself had made. A box office failure in its initial release and reviled by critics, it has since gone onto become a classic (like most of Walt's earlier films). And it certainly deserved to; artistically, this is one of Disney's most beautifully animated films. The background details and medieval tapestry look are staggering and the character designs are all classic Disney. Using Tchaikovsky's own music for his similarly immortal ballet was a great touch on Disney's part, too; the marriage between the two geniuses could not have been more ideal. And yes, Maleficent is one of the most frightening and imposing villains Disney has ever made. I remember being positively terrified of her as a child. Storywise, this is about as simple as it gets -- it IS a fairy tale, after all, and neither Aurora nor Phillip have much in the way of personalities (although the latter does come to life in the electrifying climax), but everything else about the movie is fantastic. The climactic showdown between Phillip and Maleficent as a fire breathing dragon also ranks as one of the most thrilling final battles in any Disney film.

The art and music are just incredible. The villain and three good fairies are extraordinary!

...now if only the romantic leads were interesting.

The art and music in this film is just incredible, and Maleficent is a really memorable villain. She makes this movie! The medieval atmosphere was done perfectly too. It's in my top Disney films for sure!

If you have ever had any quarrels with the movie (meaning its flaws), I strongly suggest that you just listen to the music again.

Never will one element made you so forgiving after listening to it.

Problems and all, I think this is still one of the Disney's best films they put out in any period of time.

@DreamMaster08X Or if you don't like the music, just look at the ART. It's INCREDIBLE!
