Walt Disney urged for the fairies to be more homogeneous, which Thomas and Johnston objected to, with Thomas stating they thought'that's not going to be any fun'.

These Very RARE Cels are very hard to find in the marketplace and rarely ever made available to the public. Sleeping Beauty is an American animated musical fantasy film produced by Walt Disney based on The Sleeping Beauty by The Brothers Grimm. The 16th Disney animated feature film, it was released to theaters on January 29, 1959, by Buena Vista Distribution.This was the last Disney adaptation of a fairy tale for some years because of its initial mixed critical reception and underperformance at the box office; the studio did not return to the genre until 30 years later, after Walt Disney died in 1966, with the release of The Little Mermaid (1989). It features the voices of Mary Costa, Eleanor Audley, Verna Felton, Barbara Luddy, Barbara Jo Allen, Bill Shirley, Taylor Holmes, and Bill Thompson. The film was directed by Les Clark, Eric Larson, and Wolfgang Reitherman. The film's musical score and songs, featuring the work of the Graunke Symphony Orchestra under the direction of George Bruns, are arrangements or adaptations of numbers from the 1890 Sleeping Beauty ballet by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. Along with Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Igor Stravinsky's music composition was also popular in the film. However, unlike the previous feature-films, this was the first Disney feature-film that did not have the same background animation material, but instead with new background animation material.
Sleeping Beauty was the first animated film to be photographed in the Super Technirama 70 widescreen process, as well as the second full-length animated feature film to be filmed in anamorphic widescreen, following Disney's own Lady and the Tramp four years earlier. The film was presented in Super Technirama 70 and 6-channel stereophonic sound in first-run engagements. The movie's Animators included both Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston, 2 of the famous "9 Old Men".Johnston was an animator at Walt Disney Studios from 1935 to 1978, and became a directing animator beginning with Pinocchio , released in 1940. He contributed to most Disney animated features, including Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs , Fantasia and Bambi. His last full work for Disney came with The Rescuers , in which he was caricatured as one of the film's characters, the cat Rufus.
The very last film he worked on was The Fox and the Hound. Johnston co-authored, with Frank Thomas, the reference book Disney Animation: The Illusion of Life , which contained the 12 basic principles of animation. This book helped preserve the knowledge of the techniques that were developed at the studio.
The partnership of Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston is fondly presented in the documentary Frank and Ollie , produced by Thomas' son Theodore, who in 2012 also produced another documentary, Growing up with Nine Old Men , included in the Diamond edition of the Peter Pan DVD. Franklin Rosborough "Frank" Thomas (September 5, 1912 â September 8, 2004) was an American animator.He was one of Walt Disney's team of animators; known as the Nine Old Men. His work in animated cartoon shorts included "Brave Little Tailor", in which he animated scenes of Mickey Mouse and the king; Mickey and the bear in "The Pointer", and German dialogue scenes in the World War II propaganda short "Education for Death" (shortly before Thomas enlisted in the Air Force).
During World War II he was assigned to the First Motion Picture Unit where he made training films. In feature films, among the characters and scenes Thomas animated were the dwarfs crying over Snow White's "dead" body, Pinocchio singing at the marionette theatre, Bambi and Thumper on the ice, Lady and the Tramp eating spaghetti, the three fairies in Sleeping Beauty , Merlin and Arthur as squirrels and the "wizard's duel" between Merlin and Madam Mim in The Sword in the Stone (in which he was paired with animator Milt Kahl to great effect), King Louie in The Jungle Book (the song number "I Wan'na Be Like You" featuring King Louie and Baloo the Bear re-teamed him with Kahl), the dancing penguins in Mary Poppins , and Winnie The Pooh and Piglet in Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day and Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too. Thomas was directing animator for several memorable villains, including the evil stepmother Lady Tremaine in Cinderella , the Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland , and Captain James Hook in Peter Pan.
He retired from Disney on January 31, 1978. Walt Disney's SLEEPING BEAUTY.After many childless years, King Stefan and Queen Leah happily welcome the birth of their daughter, Princess Aurora. They proclaim a holiday for their subjects to pay homage to the princess. At the gathering for her christening, she is betrothed to Prince Phillip, the young son of King Hubert, Stefan's friend, so that their kingdoms will always be united. Among the guests are three good fairies: Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather, who have come to bless the child with gifts.
Flora and Fauna give their blessings (beauty and song, respectively). Just before Merryweather can bestow her gift to the infant princess, the evil fairy/witch Maleficent appears. Angered upon not being invited to the christening, Maleficent curses the princess, proclaiming that before the sun sets on her sixteenth birthday, she will prick her finger on the spindle of an enchanted spinning wheel and die. After Maleficent leaves, laughing, Merryweather uses her blessing to weaken the curse so that Aurora instead will fall into a deep sleep from which she can only be awakened by true love's first kiss.Stefan, still fearful for his daughter's life, orders all spinning wheels in the kingdom to be burned. The fairies do not believe that will be enough to keep Aurora safe, and so they take Aurora away to a woodcutter's cottage in the forest, living as mortals, until the day of her sixteenth birthday. Years later, Aurora, renamed Briar Rose, has grown up into a beautiful young maiden. On the day of her sixteenth birthday, the three fairies ask Rose to gather berries in the forest so they can prepare a surprise party for her.
Meanwhile, Maleficent, in frustration, has her raven Diablo search for Aurora after her bumbling demon soldiers fail to find her, revealing to her that they've been looking in every cradle for 16 years. In the forest, Rose's beautiful singing voice attracts the attention of Phillip, now a handsome young man. They instantly fall in love, unaware of being betrothed many years ago. Rose asks Phillip to come to the cottage in the glen that evening to meet her, without telling each other's names.
Having difficulty sewing together a ball gown and preparing a birthday cake for Rose, the fairies resort to magic. Fighting over the dress' color, the magic with puffs exiting the chimney of the cottage attracts the attention of Diablo. When Rose arrives, the fairies tell her the truth about her royal heritage, and that she cannot see her newfound love stranger. Heartbroken, Rose leaves the room.
Overhearing this, Diablo departs to inform Maleficent. At the same time, Phillip tells his father of a peasant girl whom he met and wishes to marry in spite of his prearranged marriage to Aurora. Hubert fails to convince him otherwise, leaving him in equal disappointment.
The fairies take Aurora back to the castle that evening. Maleficent lures Aurora away from the fairies and tricks the princess into pricking her finger on a spinning wheel's spindle, completing the curse, and sending Aurora into a deep sleep.
The fairies put Aurora on a bed in the highest tower and cast a gentle spell on everyone in the castle, putting them all to sleep until the curse is broken. From Hubert's conversation with Stefan, Flora realizes that Phillip is the stranger whom Aurora has fallen in love with.
However, he has been ambushed and kidnapped by Maleficent and her minions at the cottage. They take him to Maleficent's castle on Forbidden Mountain and imprison him in the dungeon. Maleficent shows Phillip that the peasant girl and the now peacefully sleeping Aurora are one and the same. She plans to keep him locked away until he is a weak old man on the verge of death, then she will release him to meet his love, who will not have aged a single day. Luckily they find and release Phillip, arming him with the Sword of Truth and the Shield of Virtue.
The fairies and Phillip then proceed to escape on his horse Samson. In the process, Merryweather also turns Diablo to stone, but his cries alert Maleficent to the prince's escape. As Phillip and the fairies make their way toward King Stefan's castle, Maleficent tries to stop him with a series of lightning bolts, and even conjuring a forest of thorns to surround the castle, but all her attempts fail.
She then teleports herself to the castle gate and transforms into a giant dragon to battle the prince. The battle moves onto a cliff, where a blast of Maleficent's flame causes Phillip to lose his shield. Just as Maleficent is about to lunge at the prince and destroy him, the three fairies fly to Phillip's aid. Blessing it with all their magic, Phillip throws the sword directly into Maleficent's heart. Mortally wounded, Maleficent collapses over the cliff.
All that's left of her is a part of her robe, with the sword pinning it down as it turns black. When Maleficent dies, the forest of thorns disappears. Phillip, accompanied by the fairies, walks into the castle. In the highest tower he finds his true love, still asleep.
He kisses Aurora and she awakens, breaking the curse and waking everyone in the palace. The royal couple descends to the ballroom, where Aurora is happily reunited with her parents, despite Hubert's confusion. As Aurora dances with Phillip, Flora and Merryweather resume their argument over the color of Aurora's dress, changing it to pink and blue and back again. Aurora and Phillip dance on and live happily ever after.
