“The Disney Renaissance from 1984-1994 produced some of the most captivating and inspirational animated films of all time. The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and The Lion King, to name a few.
Don Hahn (producer of countless Disney Films) and Peter Schneider (former President/Chairman of Walt Disney Feature Animation) sit down with the guys at “Speaking of Animation” to talk about the famous Disney era and their documentary, Waking Sleeping Beauty, which chronicles the studio’s rise back to the top.
They talked with them about artists, executives, studio culture, power struggles, and of course, filmmaking!“
“From 1984 to 1994, a perfect storm of people and circumstances changed the face of animation forever.
Waking Sleeping Beauty is no fairytale. It is a story of clashing egos, out of control budgets, escalating tensions… and one of the most extraordinary creative periods in animation history.“
