You’re not dreaming — Disney Animation‘s 1959 classic feature film Sleeping Beauty is back on Blu-ray on today (a Platinum Edition Blu-ray of Sleeping Beauty was last released exactly 6 years ago today in 2008).

It will be available in a 2-disc “Superset” which will include a Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy. It will also be re-released as a standalone DVD.
