Dir. Clyde Geronimi, Eric Larson, Wolfgang Reitherman, Les Clark. 1959. 70mm. At the time of its release, Walt Disney’s Sleeping Beauty was the most expensive animated film ever made, a passion project for the studio that ventured into new frontiers for the form and was originally formatted for Super Technirama 70mm exhibition. With art direction inspired by medieval and Renaissance painting and tapestries and music adapted from Tchaikovsky, this visually spectacular fairy tale, in which the deliriously evil and remarkably designed villain Maleficent makes things very difficult for betrothed royal lovers Princess Aurora and Prince Phillip, remains one of the most evocative, exquisitely detailed of all hand-drawn animated movies.
