Walt Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" was officially released on January 29, 1959 by Buena Vista Distribution. It also marked the last of the princess fairytale genre before Walt Disney's death in 1966. This was also the first movie to be filmed using the Technirama widescreen process. The film was presented in Super Technirama 70 and 6-channel stereophonic sound in its first debut. Ken Anderson was in charge of the film's overall design while Eyvind Earle was the film's color stylist and chief background designer.

Interesting facts: Aurora (the female protagonist) appeared in less than 18 minutes throughout the film. The production of the film began in 1951 and continued until its debut in 1959 (almost a decade in production!). The backgrounds took on average 7-10 days to produce, which was far longer than the average on other animated works that usually took one workday to produce. This movie was also the first time animators experimented with the xerox process (was later used during the making of "101 Dalmatians in 1961).

All of these pieces are original vintage production cels from the 1959 feature film, "Sleeping Beauty". There are no reproductions, limited editions, or sericels. All of my artwork is 100% original.
