"This fine film lets you experience the rebirth of Disney as if you were there! This tale of artistic reincarnation is a classic show business story that has a terrific inside Hollywood sensibility plus an unblinking candor."—Los Angeles Times

By the mid-1980s, the fabled animation studios of Walt Disney had fallen on hard times. The artists were polarized between newcomers hungry to innovate (including a young Tim Burton and John Lasseter) and old timers not yet ready to relinquish control. These conditions produced a series of box-office flops and pessimistic forecasts: maybe the best days of animation were over. Maybe the public didn't care. Only a miracle or a magic spell could produce a happy ending. Waking Sleeping Beauty is no fairy tale. It's the true story of how Disney regained its magic with a staggering output of hits - Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Lion King, and more - over a 10-year period. (86 mins., 35mm)
