Sleeping Beauty is a 1959 American animated romantic fantasy film, produced by Walt Disney and based on Charles Perrault's fairy tale, "La Belle au bois dormant". Directed by Les Clark, Eric Larson, and Wolfgang Reitherman, the film tells the tale of a princess, Aurora (voice of Mary Costa), who is subject to a horrible curse: she will prick her finger on a spindle and fall into a deep, deep slumber from which she can only be awakened by true love's first kiss. Though her parents, King Stefan (voice of Taylor Holmes) and Queen Leah, try to protect her by banning spinning wheels from their kingdom, the dreaded day still comes and the entire kingdom falls asleep. Will Prince Philip (Bill Shirley) be able to rescue them all? Sleeping Beauty is a timeless classic that fans enjoy watching over and over again.
