** On the other hand, ''Film/{{Shrek}}'' did have a sequel revolving around the new ogre couple having to deal with Fiona's parents. Considering that ''Shrek'' is a parody of fairy tales in general, including ''Sleeping Beauty'', it's fitting that Shrek 2 would (intentionally or not) take cues from ''Sleeping Beauty'''s second part.

* {{Fanon}}: As Merriweather never gets to give her gift at the christening, fans like to wonder what it might be. A poll on the Disney Princess site saw that 'intelligence' was the most popular opinion.

** In fan-works, Aurora is [[DoNotCallMePaul often not fond of being called "Aurora"]]. As a result, Phillip often calls her "Briar Rose" in private.
** After the events of the film, Aurora suffers from insomnia and frequent nightmares.



** Aurora's segment from the CompilationMovie ''Franchise/DisneyPrincess Enchanted Tales: Follow Your Dreams'' hasn't gotten much love from the public. Its crimes include turning the princess into a ditz, and boasting animation that fails at evoking "a moving illustration." Even Aurora's original voice actress, Mary Costa, believes it justifies Disney's refusal to make a full-length sequel. (read the second page of [[http://www.dvdizzy.com/sleepingbeauty-interview.html this interview]])
** The ''Maleficent'' movie is considered this by those who would rather the villainess remain evil at heart, instead of being turned into TheWoobie. Or to those who wish she'd been cast as someone other than Angelina Jolie. Or those who feel that the fairies, often seen as the actual heroines of the story, were DemotedToExtra and TookALevelInDumbass solely to [[SpotlightStealingSquad prop up Maleficent]], ''plus'' applying AdaptationalVillainy to Aurora's kindly dad King Stefan. In fairness, said film is also clearly an AlternateContinuity, and Disney's Animated Canon has always taken precedence over the live-action adaptations.

** The fairies have brought Aurora back home before the sun sets on her sixteenth birthday, which would rid her of Maleficent's curse. Naturally with hours to go at the most, they should not let Aurora out of their sight for a moment and keep their guard up until the sun sets and they know she's safe. Instead, they decide to give her some time to cry alone and Maleficent finds her only moments later and the prophecy comes true.

--> '''Fauna:''' Oh, why did we leave her alone?!

** Maleficent's minions were ordered to search the kingdom for the young Princess Aurora and, for 16 years, didn't realize that babies grow up. Maleficent is [[UnstoppableRage rightfully peeved at this]].

* VindicatedByHistory: This film did not recoup its budget (in spite of grossing well enough to come second in the box office during its opening) and, at best, garnered mixed results from critics. Its failings were a crushing disappointment to Walt Disney himself and nearly killed off the studio's production of animated feature films. Although the process used to make it helped lower the costs of future animated movies and keep it going, no fairy tales would come out of the studio until TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation hit with ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid''. Nowadays, however, the film is considered a classic that proved that the studio was able to make a genuinely dark fairy tale and helped to give the [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon canon]] one of its greatest villains.

Added DiffLines:

* CounterpartComparison:
** The three fairies can be and have been compared to WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls. Both trios are three female characters who fight evil and protect the innocent. Flora and Blossom are the leaders and Fauna and Bubbles are the sweet, nonconfrontational ones. The most striking similarity is between Merryweather and Buttercup, who are the feisty, dark-haired fighters.

** The Disney Blogger Blog/UnshavedMouse points out that if you view Aurora and Phillip as minor characters than it becomes one of the greatest feminist movies ever made. Basically it's a big-budget, blockbuster film released by a major studio with an almost-entirely female cast, most of which are not conventionally attractive or sexualized. The gender of the protagonists is also totally incidental in all cases and not remarked upon, and they all work unfailingly alongside each other rather than squabbling (the blue-vs-pink debate notwithstanding).
