I adore Sleeping Beauty-my favorite Disney princess movie.  First it's one of the most beautiful films by Disney as you can see in the castle and the colors.  Additionally Aurora is pretty much the most beautiful Disney princess, with her long, thick blonde hair, slim waist, graceful movements, and red lips (at least to an American standard of beauty). Then there is the fantastic music courtesy of Tchaikovsky.  I love the bickering fairies and Maleficent is a pretty scary villain.  Prince Phillip actually has a bit of a personality unlike the princes in Snow White and Cinderella; they make a beautiful couple when they're dancing in the clouds.

One part of the movie that has always bothered me is that the queen doesn't get a name; she speaks but she's never named.  Thus I named Mary.


  1. I love this movie, too! It's among my Top 3 Disney movies. And yes, the prince actually has a personality! That's a nice change. Hehe, now I'll call the Queen Mary as well. Good idea.

    Thank you for the post!

  2. It has been ages since I saw this movie, but I loved your profile facts and your review has made me want to check it out again for old time sake. Great post!

  3. Oh my gosh, I agree on everything you've said! I used to watch this movie multiple times a day when I was a kid. I still love it.
