Sleeping Beauty R2 Platinum Edition in October - Artwork added

Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Sleeping Beauty 2-Disc 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.

The 2-Disc Platinum Edition boasts digitally re-mastered picture and sound and comes complete with a host of extras illustrating the making of the film including, Picture Perfect: The Making of Sleeping Beauty, a selection of deleted songs, a look through the Sleeping Beauty art galleries as well as the original trailer for the theatrical release of the film.
