Reviews
Mine: A really good Disney adaptation. The animation is really good and interesting. The story holds up for the entire movie. Good stuff.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Walt Disney's most expensive and elaborate animated feature (at the time) is actually a simple, straightforward telling of the classic fairy tale, with music adapted from Tchaikovsky, and such memorable characters as Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather (the three good fairies) and the evil witch Maleficent. Highlight: the final, fiery confrontation between Maleficent and Prince Phillip. Bound to lose something on TV, since it was filmed in (and designed for) Super Technirama 70--a widescreen process.
