Sleeping Beauty

 (1959)

Sleeping Beauty Blu-ray delivers stunningly beautiful video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

When an enchanted kingdom and the most fair princess in the land falls prey to the ultimate mistress of evil, the fate of the empire rests in the hands of three small fairies and a courageous prince's magic kiss. Their quest is fraught with peril as the fellowship must battle the evil witch and a fire breathing dragon if they are to set the Beauty free. From spectacular action to the breathtaking pageantry of the princess and her kingdom, Sleeping Beauty has something to charm every member of your family. Disney's first Large Format animated film. Made in Technirama.

Sleeping Beauty Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Despite early marketing blurbs suggesting the latest Blu-ray release of Sleeping Beauty would boast "exquisite new picture and sound" and a video presentation that was "fully restored with revolutionary technology," Disney's Diamond Edition appears to repurpose the same 2.55:1 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 encode featured on the 2008 50th Anniversary Platinum Edition BD. Screenshot comparisons only confirm matters, as no discernible alterations or improvements in color, contrast or clarity are apparent. So, question of the day: is that really such a bad thing? As double dips go, sure. As must-have Blu-rays go, though, absolutely not. Sleeping Beauty's video presentation remains exquisite, even some six years later, and the film has been fully and gorgeously restored, utilizing a methodology not unlike some of Disney's more recent, highly regarded remasters. That restoration simply took place some time ago. "Revolutionary" no longer applies either, but hyperbole is as hyperbole does.

Short version: if the Platinum Edition Blu-ray is sitting on your shelf, put away your wallet. You already own the Diamond Edition AV presentation. (Not to mention a substantially larger supplemental package. But more on that in a moment.)

Long version: If you don't already own the 50th Anniversary Platinum BD, prepare to be most pleased with the results. Lindsay Mayer awarded Sleeping Beauty with a 5.0 video score in October 2008, declaring it "stellar" and describing it as being as close to perfect as possible without using the word "perfect." I'm not going to go quite that far -- hints of negligible aliasing do creep in here and there, even if they're difficult to spot when the film is in motion -- but I have no problem sticking with Mayer's 5.0. It's just that good. Colors are lush and stunning, with impressive richness and stability. Contrast is vibrant and consistent, without artificially cranking or boosting black levels to an even remotely troubling degree. Crush is never a factor, noise is all but non-existent, and artifacting and banding are held at bay. Moreover, detail is excellent, with crisp line art, striking backgrounds and painted textures, and next to nothing in the way of disappointments or distractions. There is a fair amount of softness scattered throughout, but it's strictly of the optical variety and traces back to the original photography and elements. Otherwise, print damage and, really, any significant sign of age has been eliminated. The image is pristine, yes. Some will say too pristine. Sans grain. But there's no indication (at least none of which I'm aware) that detail has been compromised in any way. Sleeping Beauty's video presentation may be six years old, but it's tough to make the case that it needed a second high-dollar overhaul.


Sleeping Beauty Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Diamond Edition Blu-ray recycles the DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 surround track from the 2008 50th Anniversary Platinum Edition BD, yes, but I doubt anyone is about to complain. As Mayer writes in her original review, "Going back to the original score recordings from Germany, sound technicians like Randy Thornton and Terry Porter restored every last note, word, and foley effect to remove hisses, pops, and other artifacts to get a clean, smooth sound. The restored audio was then mixed into an engulfing 7.1 channel mix that really lends a superior experience to the film. Tchaikovsky's score is beautiful and highly infectious. You'll find yourself humming the waltz-like main theme for days after. Dialogue is crystal clear and follows the characters across the "stage" of sound; it's never muddled or hard to distinguish. Rears are used frequently for residual score and ambient effects like the many birds and other wildlife in Briar Rose's forest. LFE is used to dramatic effect in the score, as well as lending a good amount of "oomph" to scenes like Phillip and Maleficent's good versus evil showdown. For purists, Disney provides the film's original 4-channel stereophonic track as well. The Blu-ray's sound rates second to nothing, and it is a fitting complement to the film's excellent picture."

Note: the 2008 Blu-ray release didn't include any foreign language audio tracks. The 2014 Diamond Edition BD offers four: a French DTS-HD High Resolution 7.1 track, and a trio of Spanish, Portuguese and Russian Dolby Digital 5.1 mixes. Also included: English, English SDH, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Russian subtitles.
