Far from a fairytale, Waking Sleeping Beauty is an unprecedented eye-opening look at the conflict, drama and tension that ushered in the second chapter of Disney's animation legacy, a decade of unparalleled creativity that included The Little Mermaid, Beauty And The Beast, Aladdin and The Lion King.
