Corrected entry: When Maleficient captures Prince Phillip at the cottage, she states that she set her trap for a peasant and instead caught a prince. However we just witnessed Princess Aurora prick her finger and the fairies put everyone to sleep, thus she would not have needed to set a trap for Aurora in the cottage.
New this month Correction: The reason Maleficent was setting a trap in the cottage was to capture the princess's true love so she could prevent the princess from being woken up. She didn't know at the time that Aurora had fallen in love with Prince Phillip, who was assumed to be the peasant.
Corrected entry: Throughout the movie Aurora has brown eyes. When she is kissed by the prince however, she opens her eyes and they are clearly blue.
Correction: Aurora's eyes are purple in the beginning because she is under a curse. When she awakens, the curse is broken and they are blue.
Corrected entry: Before they start using magic, the fairies lock the door. When Rose gets back, she prances through the door easily.
Correction: When they hear Rose approaching they quickly arrange everything before she comes in. Obviously one of them unlocked the door.
Corrected entry: When the fairies enter the prince's cell, his cape is laying on the seat. The fairies give him the sword and shield, which he admires while Flora talks for a while. Then they leave the cell with the prince wearing his cape. There is a very small period of time where we are not looking at the prince but nowhere near enough to put aside the sword and shield, pull on the cape, clasp it, and pick up the sword and shield again.
Correction: It's very likely that the faries helped Philip put the cape on him.
Corrected entry: The fairies lock the door to the woodcutter's cottage while they're using their magic, but Aurora is able to enter without having the door unlocked by magic or physical contact with the door on the fairies' part. She also does not pause to unlock the door herself when she enters in a flurry.
Correction: The fairies unlocked the door offscreen during their scramble when they heard Aurora approaching.
Corrected entry: If the fairies knew that Maleficent was going to try and kill Rose on her 16th birthday, why, oh why, do they take her back to the castle on that day? Why take her back to where Maleficent was expecting her? Why not wait until after her birthday?
Correction: Maleficent said "Before the sun sets on her 16th birthday, she will prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and die." The fairies don't take Aurora back to the castle until it is almost sunset and they plan on keeping her with them the whole time, so they probably felt it was safe.
Corrected entry: In the kings' drinking song, King Hubert sings, "Let me fill up your glass; that glass was all foam." This would make a lot more sense if they were drinking beer instead of wine. (There ARE so-called "foamy wines," but you'd never get a glassful of foam).
Correction: When it isn't poured properly, champagne CAN end up being merely a glass full of foam, and can take up to two minutes clearing, leaving very little liquid at the bottom of the glass.
Corrected entry: When all the fairies are crying in front of the bed, Merriweather's eyes are brown. But throughout the rest of the movie, they're blue.
Correction: Merriweather's eyes are blue when she cries over Aurora.
Corrected entry: In the scene where prince Phillip is talking to Maleficent in the dungeon, she shows him a clip of the future where he leaves her castle in 100 years time. In it it shows him with a sheild that gets given to him by the fairies later on in the film. How can she say he has something that he hasn't and surely if she knew they where coming, she would see that he would escape.
Correction: In Malificent's vision the shield is given to prince Philip by her, as a form of humiliation.
Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie, you can see that "Rose" is very tall. But when she's in the cloak, walking with the fairies, she is only slightly taller than them.
Correction: We are well aware that the fairies are capable of changing their physical appearances. Perhaps they decided it was more in the godmother characters to be much shorter than rose. Then, when Rose discovered she was Aurora, they returned to their natural heights.
Corrected entry: When one of the fairies makes the cake, she uses cups and teaspoons. This movie takes place in the 14th century and those measurements were not used in cookbooks until 1896 in Fannie Merritt Farmer's cookbook.
Correction: And people can't talk to animals, and there are no fairies who can do magic by waving wands. This is a FAIRY TALE, with all that implies. The use of "cup" and "teaspoon" is a stylistic change that's meant to make the film easier to understand to modern-day viewers.
Corrected entry: When the fairies are trying to set up the party for Rose they are hopeless at cooking and sewing without magic. How did they get along for 16 years without knowing those basic skills?
Correction: Merriweather questioned why Fauna was making the cake when she had never done any of the cooking, and Flora answered that she had always wanted to. So for her it was the first time. And Flora had never made clothes before either. While Merriweather was just anxious to have the wands back from the first day because she just didn't like doing things our way.
Corrected entry: When the two fairies, Flora and Merryweather are fighting over the colour the dress should be, they shoot blue and pink sparks out the chimney. The crow that the evil scorceress sent to find Aurora sees the sparks and investigates. As he looks down the chimney a pink spark hits him, then a blue spark hits him. Why didn't he change his colour? And a lot of other things were zapped as well but didn't change colour.
Correction: Because the fairies' magic was directed only at the dress. If nothing else changed color, then obviously they only intended to change dress color, and it would be the only thing affected.
