With brilliant animation, stunning medieval settings and extraordinary music adapted from Tchaikovsky's score, Disney's master storytellers transform the fairy tale of SLEEPING BEAUTY into a spectacular adventure of suspense, romance and fantasy.
Once upon a time lived a beautiful princess named Aurora - destined by a terrible curse to prick a finger on a spindle and fall into an eternal sleep. But Aurora's three hilarious fairy godmothers have discovered a way to break the spell. One kiss from the valiant Prince Phillip can awaken the sleeping princess, but first he must face the terrifying wrath of the most evil and wicked sorceress of all, Maleficent!
