Disclosure: I received an all expenses paid trip to Los Angeles for the coverage of several press events for Disney. All opinions are 100% my own. #DisneyInHomeEvent #SleepingBeauty #Maleficent
Did you know that when Disney releases an old classic they add extra bonus features to make it even better? SLEEPING BEAUTY DIAMOND EDITION awakens on Blu-ray™, DVD, Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere TODAY! It has an amazing round up of deleted scenes and extra bonus features! When we visited Walt Disney’s Los Feliz Estate, we got to meet with David Jessen (Vice President, Content Enhancement) and he gave us a special presentation of some of the bonus features on the Diamond Edition. We got to sit in Walt Disney’s private screening room and screen it. I don’t believe my life sometimes.
David Jessen is the guy who adds all the cool extras to the releases. He told us that they go through the Vault for each release but they only get a little bit. They only dig through there to get some great content and then close it up. I love that. I love that they will be able to keep releasing cool, never before seen stuff for years and years to come. He has been with Disney for 19 years and you can tell from how excited he got talking to us that he still loves his job.
Creating the ultimate at-home viewing experience, Disney’s 2-Disc Diamond Edition Blu-ray Superset (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy) contains digitally restored picture and sound, a digital copy of the film, and a variety of magical new bonus features, including “Once Upon A Parade,” in which “Modern Family” star Sarah Hyland tells us the tale of Walt Disney World’s new Festival Of Fantasy Parade, “Art of Evil: Generations Of Disney Villains,” a legacy piece spotlighting Disney’s favorite villain animator and Maleficent creator Marc Davis, and “@DisneyAnimation: Artists in Motion,” in which Walt Disney Animation Visual Development artist Brittney Lee goes through the process of creating a three dimensional sculpture of Maleficent, completely out of paper.
Additional all-new bonus features include never-before-seen deleted scenes “The Fair” (with Deleted Character The Vulture,) “The Curse is Fulfilled” and “Arrival Of Maleficent,” plus the Beauty-Oke sing-along to “Once Upon A Dream.” The Blu-ray Superset also includes classic DVD bonus features and more!
