If you like this film, let us know!

Waking Sleeping Beauty is a 2009 American documentary film directed by Disney film producer Don Hahn and produced by Hahn and former Disney executive Peter Schneider. The film documents the history of Walt Disney Feature Animation from 1984 to 1994, covering the rise of a period referred to as the Disney Renaissance.

Unusual for a documentary film, Waking Sleeping Beauty uses no new on-camera interviews, instead relying primarily on archival interviews, press kit footage, in-progress and completed footage from the films being covered, and personal film/videos shot (often against company policy) by the employees of the animation studio.

Waking Sleeping Beauty debuted at the 2009 Telluride Film Festival, and played at film festivals across the country before its limited theatrical release on March 26, 2010 by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.

Synopsis

The film covers the fall and rebirth of Disney's animation division, the effects the new corporate team of Michael Eisner, Frank Wells, and Jeffrey Katzenberg had on the division, the competition with Don Bluth's animation studio, the pivotal roles of Who Framed Roger Rabbit and the CAPS system, the introduction of the home video format, and the new-found success the studio had from 1989-1999.

After a young red fox is orphaned, Big Mama the owl, Boomer the woodpecker, and Dinky the finch arrange for him to be adopted by a kindly farmer named Widow Tweed. Tweed names him Tod, since he reminds her of a toddler. Meanwhile, her neighbor, a hunter named Amos Slade, brings home a young hound puppy named Copper and introduces him to his hunting dog Chief. Tod and Copper become playmates and vow to remain "friends forever". Slade becomes frustrated with Copper for frequently wandering off to play and puts him on a leash. While playing with Copper at his home, Tod awakens Chief. Slade and Chief chase him until they are confronted by Tweed. After a violent argument, Slade threatens to kill Tod if he trespasses on his farm again. Hunting season comes and Slade takes his dogs into the wilderness for the interim. Meanwhile, Big Mama, Dinky and Boomer attempt to explain to Tod that his friendship with Copper can no longer continue, as they are natural enemies, but Tod naively refuses to believe them, hoping that he and Copper will remain friends forever.

The Boys: The Sherman Brothers' Story est un fascinant documentaire sur les frères Sherman, le duo extraordinairement prolifique oscarisé à qui l'on doit tant de chansons, et dont la grande réussite professionnelle dans le divertissement familial cachait des différences de vues de plus en plus grandes au cours de leurs soixante années de partenariat.

De Mickey Mouse à Mary Poppins, du cinéma à la télévision, en passant par le parc Disneyland, Walt Disney a touché le coeur de millions de spectateurs à travers le monde entier avec une seule et même recette : transporter les gens dans la magie. Sur l'initiative de sa fille, Diane Disney Miller, et présenté par la légende Disney, Dick Van Dike, un des acteurs de Mary Poppins, le film révèle, dans un instructif portrait, l'homme qui se cache derrière le mythe, en présentant non seulement une panoplie d'interviews de ses amis, de ses collaborateurs et d'experts en tous genres mais aussi des films privés de la famille Disney. Des périodes fastes aux périodes difficiles, mal-aimé ou reconnu, Walt Disney est toujours resté un homme non seulement, innovateur, dynamique et perfectionniste pour ses studios mais aussi profondément dévoué à sa famille.

Troisième volet de "Il était une fois Hollywood", "That's Entertainment III" nous propose un nouveau panorama de l'age d'or de la MGM mais aussi des chutes rarissimes, des séquences coupées lors de la sortie des films et des essais d'autres stars que celles qui furent finalement choisies.

Bien avant la révolution technologique de l'animation assistée par ordinateur et ses possibilités infinies, la magie de l'animation s'écoulait du crayon de deux des meilleurs animateurs que la Walt Disney Company n'aie jamais connu : Frank Thomas et Ollie Johnston. Talentueux dessinateurs de Bambi, Pinocchio, La belle et le clochard ou Le livre de la jungle, ils sont devenus des modèles pour toute une génération de nouveaux animateurs, et notamment ceux de succès récents comme Le roi lion. Leur génie créatif a rendu à tout jamais le nom de Disney synonyme d'excellence dans l'animation et ses attributs que sont la belle musique et les scénarii intemporels. Ils nous livrent ici leurs secrets, pensées, inspirations et réflexions sur la genèse de films d'animation parmi les plus beaux de l'histoire du cinéma
