Film Review: Waking Sleeping Beauty
You know that age in Disney animation when it seemed they released one major hit after another? Now-classics like The Little Mermaid, Beauty & the Beast, Aladdin and The Lion King were everywhere, from your 6th-grade classroom to your lunch at McDonald’s and your family trip to Broadway.
Well, it wasn’t all smooth sailing. Fans of “A Whole New World” and “Hakuna Matata” will love this week’s Hipp movie, Waking Sleeping Beauty, which chronicles the good times and the bad at Disney animation studios, from Walt’s own reign (Snow White and the Seven Dwarves) to the introduction of Pixar Studios and A Toy Story. Filmed in the style of home-video-turned documentary, the movie includes all that you never knew about the behind-the-scenes at this American powerhouse.
Revisit the classics by watching the fascinating Waking Sleeping Beauty on Wednesday (4/28) at 5:15 and 8pm, and on Thursday at 6:30 and 8:30pm.
