I’ve just started watching the remastered Blu-ray version of Sleeping Beauty, and I had to stop and write this post because I am in disbelief that a 50-year-old movie can look this good. Sleeping Beauty has always been the most stylish of the Disney oeuvre, but now it’s also the best-looking. It has the crispness and precision and purity of digitally-created animation, but also the soul and warmth of hand-drawn art. Seriously, wow. Even if you don’t have Blu-ray, I imagine the remastered DVD transfer is every bit as good, just lower in resolution.
I have a feeling that this disc will become to Blu-Ray decks what Dark Side of the Moon is to CD players.
