Trivia: Sleeping Beauty
  • Development Hell: Was in the works for almost all of the 1950s with production starting in 1951 and being released in 1959. In that time, it became a financial behemoth which didn't make its cost back despite being the second-highest grossing movie of the year. Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland had visitors walking past a set of dioramas of scenes from the movie in 1957, and the movie was still two years off.
  • Genre-Killer: The film's failure to earn back its exorbitant budget resulted in this twofold: it was not only the last animated film based on a fairy tale that Disney would make until The Little Mermaid in 1989, it also ended Disney's second run of lavish, expensive animated features that had been restarted with Cinderella in 1950; this inadvertently began The Dark Age of Animation, as Disney was the last studio in Hollywood who was willing to spend money on full animation.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!:
  • Playing Against Type: Voice actress Verna Felton typically played mean old ladies such as the Alpha Bitch elephant in Dumbo, Aunt Sarah in Lady and the Tramp and the Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland. Here she plays one of the heroic Good Fairies Flora.
