Sleeping Beauty (UK BD) in October - Artwork added

Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment have announced the UK Blu-ray Disc release of Sleeping Beauty (Platinum Edition) on 27th October 2008. Since its original release in 1959, Sleeping Beauty has become one of the most iconic animated films of all time. Beautifully drawn with a highly stylised art direction and featuring a score based on Tchaikovsky’s ballet of the same name, Sleeping Beauty was so important to Walt Disney Studios, it took nearly ten years to perfect.

This iconic tale of love triumphing over evil breaks free from the Disney vault for a limited time to celebrate the 50th anniversary of its original release. The first Disney classic to be released on Blu-ray Disc boasts digitally re-mastered picture and 7.1 surround sound plus a host of exclusive extras that allow the viewer to interact with the film. These include customisable menus and games such as Cine-explore, Maleficent’s Challenge and Dungeon Escape.
