A look at Waking Sleeping Beauty

The L.A. Times was on hand for a screening of Waking Sleeping Beauty, a documentary which looks at Disney during the turbulent period from the 1980s to early 1990s. Financed and distributed by Disney, and produced by Peter Schneider and directed by Don Hahn, you might expect a white-washed version of events. Not so says the Times: “Waking Sleeping Beauty doesn’t paint over the conflicts that not only were inevitable in Disney’s resurgence but also were an outcome of the turnaround itself, as the studio’s most senior executives (Jeffrey Katzenberg, Michael Eisner, Roy E. Disney) squabbled over who deserved credit for the renaissance”. Hahn said, “we were hyper aware of not making a puff piece”.
