About The Jungle Book:
Based on the Rudyard Kipling’s classic novel of the same name, The Jungle Book follows young Mowgli on a fun-filled journey with unforgettable characters, including Bagheera, the wise panther, the jazzy King Louie, the hypnotic snake Kaa and the lovable, happy-go-lucky bear Baloo, who teaches Mowgli “The Bare Necessities” of life and the true meaning of friendship.

About Sleeping Beauty:
Sleeping Beauty tells the wondrous tale of a princess cursed by an evil witch, protected by three loving fairies and, ultimately, saved by a “true love’s kiss.” Featuring the voice talents of renowned opera singer Mary Costa (as Sleeping Beauty) and Disney stalwart Eleanor Audley (as the evil fairy, Maleficent), the film’s vibrant visuals were created by a team that included Milt Kahl and Ollie Johnston, John Lounsbery, Frank Thomas and Marc Davis (of Disney’s legendary Nine Old Men), and an Academy Award® nominated score adapted from the incandescent music of Peter Tchaikovsky.

  1. Sleeping Beauty was released but not on a Diamond Edition Bluray Edition. Prob because of the Angelina Jolie Maleficent Disney movie coming out in 2014.

  2. Why can’t Disney release 101 Dalmations (animated version?? That is my favorite Disney movie!! OR Aladdin, which is also one of my favorites! I have been waiting for these movies for forever!!

  3. Yes, they’ve released Sleeping Beauty before…but it’s already been SEVEN YEARS on that one you guys!!! I agree, I want Aladdin and definitely 101 Dalmatians, but I’m sure there are plenty of people out there without Sleeping Beauty as well. Personally, I would also like to see The Black Cauldron, Hercules, Tarzan, and Pooh’s Grand Adventure get Blu-Ray releases! If a piece of shit film like ‘Home on The Range’ is already on Blu-Ray, these MUCH BETTER (i.e. 20 million times better) films have no reason not to be!!! :D
