First Look: Bonus Features and Clips from ‘Waking Sleeping Beauty’

If there is one film any fan of Disney should see, it’s Disney’s own documentary, Waking Sleeping Beauty. Comprised of tons of archival and personal footage, the documentary takes a no-holds-barred look at the state of The Walt Disney Company in the early 1980s when Hollywood big shots Michael Eisner, Jeffrey Katzenberg and all showed up in the parking lot with their fancy cars and turned the company and the animation department on its ear, taking it from the lows of The Black Cauldron to the highs of a series of animated films that helped to define a generation.

So much so that he placed them under a studio contract which is unheard of when it comes to songwriters. You hear throughout classic Disney films and throughout Disney theme parks around the world. What you may not have heard is their own story, a pair of brothers whose personal relationship was strained for most of their lives to the point where they became completely estranged from each other.
