Plot Summary: “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. Director Don Hahn and producer Peter Schneider, key players at Walt Disney Studios Feature Animation department during the mid-1980s, offer a behind-the-magic glimpse of the turbulent times the Animation Studio was going through and the staggering output of hits that followed over the next ten years. Artists polarized between the hungry young innovators and the old guard who refused to relinquish control, mounting tensions due to a string of box office flops, and warring studio heads create the backdrop for this fascinating story told with a unique and candid perspective from those that were there. Through interviews, internal memos, home movies, and a cast of characters featuring Michael Eisner, Jeffrey Katzenberg, and Roy Disney, alongside an amazing array of talented artists that includes Don Bluth, John Lasseter, and Tim Burton, “Waking Sleeping Beauty” shines a light on Disney Animation’s darkest hours, greatest joys and its improbable renaissance.

A couple of weeks ago, I was lucky enough to be invited along to a super early screening of How to train your Dragon. The movie wasn’t in it’s finished form but was 90% complete with a few wire frame models with shading in some parts. The audio wasn’t 100% complete either, in fact they were busy recording the finishing touches to the score while we were watching the movie. Even though the film wasn’t completely finished, I absolutely loved it. I cant say too much about it yet as I’d like to see it again in it’s complete form before bringing you a full review.
What made this screening special, was that we were joined by the Author of the books in which the movie is based, Cressida Cowell, the directors Dean DeBlois, Chris Sanders and producer Bonnie Arnold who was very kind to give her time to us as the premiere of her movie, The Last Station was set to premiere in London’s Leicester Square that very night. I had a great introduction to Dean DeBlois as I had to literally run from one screening to make this one. As i thought i was late, i jumped in the lift down to the screening room and heard someone coming in behind me. Realising he was too coming to the screening, I made some small talk about being late for him to reply, “don’t worry, I’m the director!” My response was something like “well, I guess they can’t start without you!”. Turns out i was right and made it in good time.
Following the screening, we were treated to a semi impromptu Q&A in which Cressida, Dean, Chris and Bonnie all shared their thoughts on the film and we have transcribed the Q&A below.
How to Train Your Dragon is released in cinemas 31st March.
Chair: Welcome the creator of the fantasic world into which we have just been plunged, Cressida Cowell, the directors and with her are the two directors Dean DeBlois, Chris Sanders and the Producer of the film Bonnie Arnold. Cressida? If I start with you. We don’t expect a young lady to create a world of fire breathing dragons and Vikings, so what inspired you?
