During my AMAZING tour of the Walt Disney Home in on my Disney Press trip I had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing Sarah Hyland. You may know her as Haley Dunphy on the ABC sitcom Modern Family but she is also a HUGE Disney Fanatic. In celebration of the Sleeping Beauty Diamond Edition, which is in stores TODAY, I got the chance to sit down with her and chat about the bonus content in the new DVD/Blu-Ray combo pack.
Sleeping Beauty Diamond Edition Bonus Content
The new Sleeping Beauty Diamond Edition is a must have for Disney Fans. Not only does it have a the beautifully remastered classic Sleeping Beauty but it full over over 2 hours of bonus content. The bonus content includes deleted scenes, The Art of Evil: Generations of Disney Villains, @DisneyAnimation: Artist in Motion, and so much more. My favorite is the Once Upon a Parade with Sarah Hyland but I tell you more about that in just a bit.
Some of the bonus content includes how the movie Maleficent came to be. Here are a few clips from the Blu-Ray about this:
As you can see the character of Maleficent went through changes before you saw the final product you saw in Sleeping Beauty. I think they did a beautiful job of bringing Maleficent with life with Angelina Jolie. There really is no other person as perfect for the role as her.
When Sarah why approached about possibly doing a bonus feature for the Sleeping Beauty Diamond Edition she enthusiastically said yes. She has been a huge lover of Walt Disney ever since she was little. Of course living in California and visiting Disneyland all the time doesn’t hurt either. Below is a sneak peak of her bonus feature Once Upon a Parade.
I love her as Ally in this story. One of the things I was surprised to learn from Sarah was that she didn’t get to visit Walt Disney World in Florida until she was 22. She is almost 24 now so that was only like 2 years ago. Totally Shocking Right?? I asked her which park was her favorite now that she has been to both and she said “Both parks are amazing and have their own unique special, magical parts to them but I think I am partial to Disneyland because of the rich history of Walt Disney.” You could tell from talking to her that she truly appreciates and loves the dream and vision that Walt Disney had to create a place where adults and kids alike could come and have fun. I feel the same way about Walt.
Another fun fact we learned is that she helped create Ally’s look for the Once Upon a Parade feature. Some of the clothes came from her own closet. That says to me that she really cared alot about this project. Although my time with her was brief it was so wonderful to speak to someone in the younger generation who really gets what Walt Disney was all about. I’ve always like her on Modern Family but after meeting her I am now a true fan!
