Sleeping Beauty

Sleeping Beauty is another good Disney film. I wouldn’t say it’s my favorite but I enjoyed watching it when I was younger. Princess Aurora has a spell put on her by Maleficent that will kill her. On her 16th birthday a spinning wheel poisons her. Her fairy friends try to save her by putting a good spell on her. Their spell will keep her alive but she’ll be asleep instead. The only way she’ll awake is if she is kissed by her true love. Prince Phillip tries to save Princess Aurora and the Maleficent turns into a dragon inorder to stop him. But she is no match for him. He defeats Maleficent, finds the princess, kisses her and she awakes.
