Waking Sleeping Beauty

I love anything to do with the history of animation. Thus this movie about the fall and rise of Disney animation in the 80's is now on the top of my must see list:

Most people don't realize how close to redundancy the animation wing of Disney came in the 80's. With less-than-successful movies like the Black Cauldron and The Great Mouse Detective and competition coming from Don Bluth (An American Tail, Land Before Time) the Disney animation department was struggling for relevancy. It took the passion of young twenty something who were trained by the retired masters of the 30's - 60's (and the tust of those in charge) to revive the program with The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, The Lion King, etc.

Can't wait to see this film!
