Sleeping Beauty

Prince Phillip escapes the Forbidden Mountain with the help of the Fairies and rides to Stephen's Castle. Maleficent blocks his way and turns herself into an enormous dragon. Phillip defeats her by throwing his sword into her and encounters Sleeping Beauty. His kiss awakens her and Aurora is reunited with her parents.

Factual error: Maleficent states that Princess Aurora will prick her finger on a spindle - the part of a spinning wheel that holds the bobbin. Spindles aren't sharp; what Aurora actually pricks her finger on is the distaff, which is used to hold the fiber before it is spun.
