Briar Rose: Oh no, this evening. Phillip: Where? Briar Rose: At the cottage, in the glen. Fauna ist lighting the candles on the cake, which starts to melt down. She tries to hold it with a broom] Fauna: Well, what do you think of it? Fauna: Yes. Of course it'll be much stiffer after it's bake.
Flora: Of course, dear. What do you think of the dress? Fauna: Well, it's not exactly the way it is in the book, is it? Flora: Well, I improved a bit! But perhaps if I added few more ruffolds? What do you think? Fauna: I think so. What do you think, Merryweather? Merryweather: [struggles out of the dress, which falls to pieces] I think we've had enough of this nonsense. I think we ought to think of Rose, and what she'll think of this mess.
I still think what I thunk before. I'm going to get those wands. Merryweather: Here they are, good as new. Flora: Careful, Merryweather! Quick, lock the doors. Flora, you close the windows. Pluck up every cranny, We can't take any chances! And now, [to Flora] you take care of the cake, Merryweather: While I Flora: Clean the room, dear, And I'll make the dress. Well, hurry! I'll put on the candles.

Make it blue. Make it pink. The camera turns to the fireplace, where blazes of color go through the chimney. We see the house from the outside, and Maleficent's pet raven, who sees the fireworks. Inside the house, the 'war' continues, until they both hit the dress at the same time, with the result that it looks like two cans of color were emptied on it] Flora: Look what you've done!
Fauna: Shh, listen! Flora: She's back, enough of this foolishness. Flora: [at the dress] Make it pink. Merryweather: Blue. Merryweather: Stop, mob! Where is everybody? Fairies: Surprise, surprise! Fauna: Happy birthday! Briar Rose: Oh you darlings, this is the happiest day of my life.
Everything's so wonderful, just wait till you meet him. Fauna: Him? Merryweather: Rose! Flora: You've met some stranger? Briar Rose: Oh he's not a stranger, we've met before. Flora: You have? Merryweather: Where?

Tonight, we're taking you back to your father, King Stefan. He's coming here tonight, I promised to meet him. Flora: I'm sorry, child, but you must never see that young man again. Briar Rose: Oh, no, no! I can't believe it. No, no! He's standing at the window, looking outside. Hubert is with him, eating] Stefan: [sighs] No sign of her yet, Hubert.
Hubert: 'course not. Good half hour 'till sunset. Stefan: I'm sorry, Hubert, but after sixteen years of worrying, never knowing Hubert: The past, all in the past. The Lackey [ See Note 1 ] arrives with a bottle of wine] Tonight, we toast to future with something i've been saving for sixteen years. Stefan: Right, Hubert, to the future! Hubert: Skumps! Hubert: Ah, excellent vintage. And now, to the new home, ey? Stefan: New home? Hubert: Children need a nest of their own, what?
Place to raise their little brood, ey? Stefan: Well, I suppose in time Hubert: Of course. To the home! Stefan: Skumps! Hubert: A toast to the home Stefan: One grander by far than a palace in Rome Hubert: Let me fill up your glass, That glass was all foam. Both: Skumps, Skumps, Skumps! Hubert: [claps his hands] The plans! Nothing elaborate, of course. Forty bedrooms, Dining hall, Honeymoon cottage, really. Stefan: You mean, you're building it already?
Hubert: Built man! The love-birds can move in tomorrow. Stefan: Tomorrow? But Hubert, they're not even married yet. Hubert: Take care of that tonight. To the wedding! Stefan: Now hold on, Hubert. I haven't even seen my daughter yet, and you're taking her away from me. Hubert: Getting my Phillip aren't you? Stefan: Yes, but Hubert: Want to see our grandchildren, don't we? Stefan: Of course, but Hubert: There's no time to lose! Getting on in years. Stefan: Now be reasonable, Hubert.
After all, Aurora knows nothing about this. Hubert: Well? Stefan: Well, it may come as quite a shock Hubert: Shock? My Phillip a shock? Stefan: Nothing, Hubert. I only meant Hubert: Why, doesn't your daughter like my son Stefan: Now, now I'm not so sure my son likes your daughter! Stefan: Now, see here Hubert: I'm not so sure my grandchildren want You for a grandfather Stefan: Why, you unreasonable, pompous, blustering, old windbag! Hubert: Unreasonable, pompous Stefan: I warn you, Hubert, this means war.
Stefan: Nothing Hubert, absolutely nothing. Hubert: The children are bound to fall in love with each other. Stefan: Precisely. And as for grandchildren, I'll have the royal woodcarvers start work on the cradle tomorrow. Hubert: Splendid! King size, of course. Stefan: Certainly. To the woodcarver's guild! Phillip arrives on his horse] Hubert: Phillip!
Phillip, hold, Phillip! Can't meet your future bride looking like that. Phillip: Well, I have met her, father. Hubert: You have? Phillip: Once upon a dream. Phillip: It wasn't a dream, father. I really did meet her! Hubert: Princess Aurora? Good heavens, we must tell Stefan! Why this is the most Phillip: I didn't say it was Aurora. Hubert: You most certainly did, you said Phillip: I said I met the girl I was going to marry. I don't know who she was, a peasant girl I suppose. Hubert: A peasant g-g-girl? You're going to marry a Why Phillip, you're joking! Give up the throne, the kingdom, for some, some nobody?
By Harry, I won't have it. You're a prince, and you're going to marry a princess! Phillip: Now father, you're living in the past. This is the fourteenth century. Hubert: Nowadays I'm still the king, and I command you to come to your senses. Hubert: Exactly! Phillip: Goodbye, father! Marry the girl you No, no, Phillip, stop, come back, hold Phillip! Oh, how will I ever tell Stefan? The fairies and Aurora, with her head down, walk cautiously towards the castle. They get inside unnoticed into some room] Flora: All right, in here, dear.
Merryweather: [closes the door and sighs] Flora: Lock the door, Merryweather! Fauna, pull the drapes! And now, dear, if you'll just sit here. This one last gift, dear child for thee, the symbol of thy royalty. A crown to wear in grace and beauty, as is thy right, and royal duty. Aurora again breaks into tears] Fauna: Now, dear.
Flora: Come, let her have a few moments alone. Fauna: Whatever are we going to do? Aurora gets up in spell, and starts towards the light] Merryweather: I don't see why she has to marry any old prince. Fauna: Now, that's not for us to decide, dear. Merryweather: Well, why don't we? Fairies: Rose, Rose! Aurora slowly walks up a staircase, following the light.
The fairies try pushing the wall open, then Flora uses her magic] Fairies: Rose, Rose! Where are you? The fairies don't find the right way at once] Fairies: Rose! Aurora starts to reach towards it with her left hand] Fairies: Rose! Don't touch anything! Without seeing her, we hear Maleficent saying] Maleficent: Touch the spindle.
For voice and piano (or guitar)
Touch it I say! Just this moment, the fairies appear in the door] Fairies: Oh! Maleficent: You poor simple fools. Thinking you could defeat me, me, the mistress of all evil. Well, here's your precious princess. Maleficent disappears, laughing] Fauna: Rose! Flora: Oh Rose! Oh, I'll never forgive myself. Fauna: We're all to blame! King Stefan and the Queen sit on their throne. Hubert approaches Stefan] Hubert: Stefan, there's something important I have to tell you. Stefan: Not now, Hubert.
Hubert: But it's about Phillip. Stefan: Phillip, oh yes, of course, Phillip, why, where is the boy? Hubert: That's what i'm telling to tell you. Stefan: Well, send for him immediately! Hubert: But The camera turns towards the tower] [The fairies are crying at a bed they have placed Aurora on, a red rose in her hand.
Merryweather: They'll be heartbroken when they find out. Flora: They're not going to. Merryweather: They aren't? Flora: We'll put them all to sleep, until Rose awakens. Flora has just put the spell on Hubert. While drifting off to sleep, he says Seems he's fallen in love with some peasant girl. Flora: Peasant girl? Yes, yes? The peasant girl, who is she? Where did he meet her? Hubert: Just some peasant girl he met. Flora: Where, where? Hubert: Once upon a dream. Prince Phillip!
He knocks on the door] Maleficent: Come in! He struggles, but ultimately is completely tied. Maleficent and her raven watch the scene with deep satisfaction] Maleficent: [lighting his face with a candle] Well, this is a pleasant surprise. I set my trap for a peasant, and lo! I catch a prince! But gently, my pets, gently, I have plans for our royal guest. As they arrive, they find the door open. They enter and find Phillip's hat on the floor] Fairies: Maleficent!
Merryweather: She's got Prince Phillip! Flora: At the forbidden mountain. Fauna: But we can't, we can't go there! Flora: We can, and we must. They are surprised by some guards, but get in unnoticed. They find a window to a room where Maleficent is having a feast, with her 'pets' dancing around a huge fire] Maleficent: [talking to her raven] What a pity prince Phillip can't be here to enjoy the celebration. Come, we must go to the dungeon and cheer him up. Maleficent talks to Phillip, who sits chained to the wall, head down] Maleficent: Oh come now, prince Phillip.
Why so melancholy? A wondrous future lies before you. You, the destined hero of a charming fairy tale come true. Maleficent uses her magic stick to depict the following] Maleficent: Behold, King Stefan's castle, and in yonder topmost tower, dreaming of her true love, the princess Aurora. But see the gracious whim of fate. Why, 'tis the self same peasant maid, who won the heart of our noble prince but yesterday. She is indeed most wondrous fair. Gold of sunshine in her hair, lips that shame the red, red rose.
In ageless sleep she finds repose. The years roll by, but a hundred years to a steadfast heart are 'bout a day. And now, the gates of the dungeon part, and the prince is free to go his way. Off he rides on his noble steed Her voice drips with sarcasm] Maleficent Merryweather starts towards Maleficent in anger] Merryweather: Why, you mean The raven has noticed Merryweather speaking and turns towards the window, but doesn't see the hidden fairies] Maleficent: Come, my pet. Let us leave our noble prince with these happy thoughts.
The road to true love may be barriered by still many more dangers, which you alone will have to face. So arm thyself with this enchanted shield of virtue and this mighty sword of truth. For these weapons of righteousness will triumph over evil. The fairies and Phillip start upwards the stairs. The raven has called Maleficent's servants, which come streaming downstairs.
Phillip fights some of them, but then they jump out a window. Some rocks are dropped towards Phillip] Flora: Phillip, watch out! A wall of arrows is shot but quickly turned into flying flowers. Merryweather frees Samson. Phillip rides off on Samson towards the gate, where hot oil is thrown. Flora turns it into a rainbow. The raven flies towards Maleficent's tower, trying to wake her.
He is followed by Merryweather, who first fails to hit him with her magic. At last, she turns him into a stone raven just outside Maleficent's door. Maleficent appears in the door] Maleficent: Silence! Born through the skies on a fog of doom. Now go with the curse and serve me well, Round Stefan's castle cast by spell! Phillip has to stop before them] Maleficent: [laughs] [Phillip stops only shortly, then starts cutting a way with his sword. But he has no chance against the fire-spying dragon. After a short fight, he must retreat. At a wall, he has to stop] Flora: [above the prince] Hop!
At another blaze of fire he loses his shield] Maleficent: [laughs] [the fairies at the prince, they combine their magic on the sword] Flora: Now sword of truth fly swift and sure, That evil die and good endure! Phillip slowly walks towards her and gives her a faint kiss on the lips. Aurora awakens, sees Phillip and begins to smile] [inside the throne room, everyone awakens, too] Stefan: Oh, ah, forgive me, Hubert, the wine Now, you were saying? Hubert: I was? Stefan: Yes, you said that a moment ago.
Hubert: Well, to come right to the point, my son Phillip says he's going to marry The fairies watch the scene from a balcony, as Aurora and Phillip appear arm in arm, walking down the stairs from above. Hubert: [wipes his eyes, mouth open] and Phillip! Aurora then fondly embraces her mother] Hubert: [to Phillip] What does this mean, boy? I don't Aurora goes but with a heavy heart.
We then get an unnecessary scene between the two kings drinking and toasting their children who are to be married. The Kings get a little tipsy along with the lute player.

One thing that worries me about the version is they are softening her up. Maleficent is basically the devil. In fact, she is proud of her loathsomeness. So Aurora pricks her finger and is put to sleep. This is a perhaps unavoidable problem with Sleeping Beauty is that most of the time the princess is asleep.
Snow White had some of this problem. The fairies could have been such cliches but the writing is quite good and we really get to know them. Unfortunately Maleficent has beaten them there and in a great scene traps the prince taking him away. Phillip gets locked in the dungeon and he and Maleficent have a terrific scene together I wish I could find. I mean who can sleep when revenge and evil is on the docket? The fairies help Philip and give him the sword of truth and shield of virtue. Really fit 14th century well. Then we get our happy ending and it is a wonderful story. And for the record, I like her better in blue!
Are there flaws in Sleeping Beauty? Yes, the princess is bland. The fairies schtick is laid on very thick. The drinking scene with the kings is unnecessary. But there is a lot more right. I love the strong prince. I love Maleficent. Watch On Bald Mountain in Fantasia and I think you will agree in personality and design Maleficent is basically the devil from that picture as a woman- even down to the minions.
I think it is an interesting take on storytelling and beautiful in its own way. I also like the Tchaikosky score. It gives a lightness and flow to the piece that works. Once Upon a Dream, while one of the only songs, is lovely and sung very well. I like there is action and a great villain who really tests the characters, pushing them to their limit. It was pretty scandalous! It is without a doubt one of their best.
Like Like. I agree. I look forward to your review in Dec! Awesome review once again. Just curious, do you recall which scene it might have been that his name was mentioned? Like Liked by 1 person. So you feel like the Blu-ray is worth it for Sleeping Beauty hah? I have the diamond edition dvd for that Bambi, Lady and the Tramp and Beauty and the Beast and they are pretty good versions.
Hate to spend all the money to upgrade because usually the Disney blu-rays are kind of lame no extra special features etc. I may ask for it for Christmas. I love the how tough Phillip is and how close he comes to losing again and again. I love the surrealist touches like with the gifts and the way everything looks like a storybook. Great voice performances too. Yeah, this I would just consider a one time thing. Sorry to hear! Well, the only ones I might get a Blu-Ray for now would probably be Tarzan and Lion King when that is re-released later on down the road once again.
Wow, I guess you were right.
Still, it is mentioned in the cast on Wikipedia for Sleeping Beauty. Oh for sure. I love the crow. That was one part of the new one I thought was cool although the fact he turned into the dragon was super lame. Maleficent is the dragon and she is mistress of all evil. Anyway, just a thought? Keep throwing these fun ideas at me! Sure thing! It was the scene a little after the beginning when the fairies were discussing how to handle the situation with Aurora before they resolve to adopt her for the next sixteen years.
If I recall correctly the scene goes somewhat like this. Oh I remember that. I still saying turning the crow to stone could be considered a good thing because he was an evil, bad bird. But yeah should do a rewatch. I want to after Maleficent. I know you liked it but boy did I hate it. But you know what, so was Maleficent. I did enjoy reading this because I admire your passion for the film and the wealth of background information you were able to gather about it. I know I could never go on about animation innovations as if I had a clue what I was talking about.
However, personally speaking, as a child I fell asleep watching this movie. I used to treat that like a hilarious joke, but re-watching it again in preparation for Maleficent that bothered me. As you said they put all that time and energy into the animation for years and so little into the actual script. Walt Disney wanted to make sure this looked nothing like Snow White, and he succeeded.
The film is for me the prime example of style over substance. It really is. A fairy tale is the most streamlined version of any story. It has been passed down from person to person for generations, so only the bare essentials are included. There is no need for complex characterization or a deeply involving plot. Disney is usually praised for adding that — for bringing fairy tales to life. I read the Grimm Brothers version of the fairy tale and I think all Disney did is transplant that on the screen and pad it out while adding very little charm and emotional investment.
It is also the most literal interpretation of a fairy tale I have ever seen. Contrary to the common joke that few fairy tales contain any fairies at all, the fairies here are the only real characters. They are the only ones who drive the plot in any way. Everyone else is a pawn, a mindless chess piece to be moved around by the fairies.
Aurora and Philip are mere archetypes, they have names but no character, nothing more. The two kings are completely superfluous, a pale imitation of the actual funny slapstick relationship between the King and the Grand Duke in Cinderella. I will give my thoughts on Maleficent soon.
I never thought of Sleeping Beauty as boring. Especially the ending is pretty exciting stuff and Phillip is my favorite Prince. As far as being the last good movie from Disney for 30 years I disagree. But yeah I never saw it as slow paced even as a little girl but I can see how you would feel that way.
Luckily there is something for everyone in the Disney world. It inspires all kinds of reactions. Never mind. I see what you are saying about the 30 years. I totally agree. Little Mermaid beats Sleeping Beauty hands down although it is in my top There were plenty of good Disney movies over those 30 years. The problem is not that the dragon sequence is too scary for youngsters, but that it comes so late in the film. There is little else of an exciting nature in the narrative, and very little outright comedy for a red-blooded child to sink his teeth into.
It definitely is more made for little girls. And I agree the third act is definitely the strongest. There is some comedy with the minions and how stupid they are. Maleficent has a dry wit about her. But it was also an era where Disney was making films for entire families and less for specifically children. After this that would be kind of thrown out the window to child specific movies like Winnie the Pooh and Aristocats. But to me it is visually stunning, with a terrific villain, great score, my favorite prince, a battle of good vs evil that is exciting.
I do think Aurora is a bland heroine but I love it. We all have our tastes and favorites. But yeah you can see from the photo that my sister and I loved Sleeping Beauty growing up. Even my father said it was. Personally I think it blows the Disney film out of the water. We get to know both the Princess and Prince very well over different time periods because it actually keeps the sleep for one hundred years bit that I love and makes a great difference from Snow White. I particularly loved this stream-of-consciousness from the sleeping princess:. I could not see or hear or feel the touch of hands, but when people were near me, I was aware of it.
