Tiggerific Trivia ~ Sleeping Beauty

Princess Aurora Focused on the Magic

Did you know?

Sleeping Beauty the 1959 animated film produced by Walt Disney and based on the fairy tale "La Belle au bois dormant" by Charles Perrault was released in theaters 54 years ago today, on January 29, 1959.
Sleeping Beauty was the 16th and last Disney animated movie to have it's cels hand-inked. 

Fun Facts:
  • The film was directed by Les Clark, Eric Larson and Wolfgang Reitherman under the supervision of Clyde Geronimi.
  • It was the first animated film to be photographed in the Technirama widescreen process. Only one other animated film, Disney's The Black Cauldron (1985), was shot in Technirama.
  • The film's musical score and songs, featuring the work of the Berlin Symphony Orchestra, are arrangements or adaptations of numbers from the 1890 Sleeping Beauty ballet by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.
There is much debate in Disney fan groups as to the appropriate color of Princess Aurora's gown. Blue or pink both are shown in the film but with blue predominantly. Disney Merchandising post 1990 shows her most often in pink as in the picture below. I think it's because the original blue is worn by Cinderella. It wouldn't do to have two princesses in the same color ball gown;)

When Princess Aurora is born, the entire kingdom is delighted, except for the evil fairy Maleficent, who places a curse on the young beauty that only a prince can break. Sent into hiding for her own safety and protected by fairies Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather. "Briar Rose" lives in the forest, unaware of her royal blood. Yet despite everyone's caution, the princess's destiny plays out as she pricks her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel, falling into a deep sleep. It's up to the daring Prince Philip to brave the fire-breathing dragon and awaken the sleeping beauty with true love's kiss.
