These are my favorite scenes from Sleeping Beauty, produced in 1959 by Walt Disney Studios. I find the background work incredible, and it definitely stands out from Disney’s other backgrounds for films because they took artist Eyvind Earle seven to ten days to paint, opposed to other backgrounds which usually only took one day. I also feel that the general artistic direction and stylization is more favorable as they stay close to the medieval-era in which the movie is placed as well as the style of the mid-1950’s. I adore the color palettes chosen for each scene as well as composition, I feel like each frame is a true masterful painting. Not only that, but each scene is backed by arrangements of Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s Sleeping Beauty ballet from 1890. I also find it intriguing that the entire film was taped in live-action with real actors for the animators to reference each scene from. The hard work of the Disney team that worked on Sleeping Beauty definitely paid off, even though it received mixed reviews with its initial release. And Maleficent is hands-down the coolest wicked witch in Disney. I mean, look at her.
