D50: Sleeping Beauty

I’ll be brief on this one since this is one of those cases where a picture says 1000 words.

If I were to judge this on story alone, I would not have liked it. But everything else is so much better than that. The voice performances are fantastic, the songs are memorable, and the villains is one of the best to have ever appeared in cinema. But the thing that makes this one of the best animated movies of all time is the animation. More than 50 years after its release, it remains the most beautifully animated movie ever. Guillermo Del Toro has cited it as being one of the movies that influenced him the most, for the animation alone. Anyways, like I said, pictures say more than I can write about this one

  1. No rating out of 5 stars?

    I agree that this film is, from an animation standpoint, breathtaking! I was never a huge fan of Maleficent. Now that I’ve re-watched the film for my Disney Canon project, I appreciate her a lot more, but still not as much as the world does.
