What If Tim Burton Had Been Allowed To Direct Sleeping Beauty?

I think it’s safe to say from Andrew Tarusov’s Tim Burton inspired artwork…that as awesome as Walt Disney’s Sleeping Beauty is…

…it would have been 152% better if Burton had been allowed to control it’s creative direction. But why stop there and not imagine what we would have received if Burton had been able to guide other Disney films?
