Did you know this week’s Tiggerific Tuesday Disney Trivia about Sleeping Beauty’s Aurora?
Princess Aurora from the 1959 Walt Disney Studios production, Sleeping Beauty, is second to Dumbo in fewest lines spoken by a title character in a Disney animated feature film.
According to IMDb:
Second only to Dumbo (1941) (who didn’t speak at all), this Disney title character has only about eighteen lines of actual dialogue throughout the entire film, in which she only appears in the film for eighteen minutes and which is actually about the three fairies who protect her, not about the Sleeping Beauty herself. Briar Rose/Aurora’s first line is spoken nineteen minutes into the film and her last is delivered after she learns of her betrothal thirty-nine minutes in. However, she does sing two songs during this time frame. The very last sound she makes in the movie is when she arrives at the castle and is crying about never seeing her true love again.
An extra trivial tidbit..
I’ve always thought the running gag where two of the fairies argue about Princess Aurora’s dress color (“Make it pink! Make it blue!”) was clever. The indecision about the dress color actually comes from the filmmaker’s problem as to deciding just that.
