Living deep in the forest, in a woodcutter’s cottage, Briar-Rose doesn’t know that she is Princess Aurora, and that the evil fairy, Maleficent has cast a dark spell over her.
When Aurora pricks her finger on a spindle, she falls into an enchanted sleep. Nothing awakens her until the prince comes along and kisses her.
This shows us that love is more powerful than hate - destroying even the most evil of plans that the fairy had for Aurora.
Sleeping Beauty was based on La Belle au bois dormant by Charles Perrault and Dornröschen by The Brothers Grimm. The film's musical score featured adaptations of music from the ballet Sleeping Beauty by Tchaikovsky. Disney also released Sleeping Beauty in 1959 as an animated feature.
