Waking Sleep Beauty

I've been so busy and so many things to catch up on! I wanted to post about something that is  really exciting to me. 

I grew up in Florida and in art classrooms in the late 80's-early 90's so it should come as no surprise that becoming a Disney animator and working for "The Mouse" was on my list of things to do when I grew up. I loved Disney movies. I loved getting books about Disney animation from the library and trying to teach myself how to draw just like a Disney animator. 

Last Friday the documentary, Waking Sleeping Beauty came out  in a few select cities. It's the story about the Disney animators and all the movies that almost never happened. 

I don't know if the movie is showing in my area but there is going to have to be a way for me to get my hands on this movie. 

Check out the trailer below:

My favorite part is right around the 1:35 mark where you see Tim Burton ( Love him!) looking so out of place with all the perky Disney people and then John Lasseter who is now one of the chief creative officers with Pixar and a big part of Toy Story 1 & 2, A Bug's Life and Cars. 

Lots more updates coming soon!

  1. Um, sounds AMAZING! I'm sure it's not coming to a "city near me" but I definitely LOL'd when they said that there was only one solution to the problem: margaritas. And you're right- Tim Burton was hilarious.
