The following movie, "Waking Sleeping Beauty" is a great behind the scenes documentary on the Disney company. For anyone who is a Disney fan or loves seeing how a big company and some pretty cool movies are made then you'll want to catch this limited release.
By the mid-1980s, the fabled animation studios of Walt Disney had fallen on hard times. The artists were polarized between newcomers hungry to innovate and old timers not yet ready to relinquish control. The conditions produced a series of box office flops and pessimistic forecasts. Maybe the best days of animation were over. Maybe the public didn't care. Only a miracle or a magic spell could produce a happy ending. 'Waking Sleeping Beauty' is no fairy tale. It's the true story of how Disney regained its magic with hits like 'The Little Mermaid,' 'Beauty and the Beast,' 'Aladdin,' and 'The Lion King' over a 10-year period.
Waking Sleeping Beauty opens March 26th, 2010 to limited release.
