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.

Other mistake: When the three fairies are cleaning up the cottage, Merriwether has the broom magically sweep all the dust into a pile, then she makes the pile disappear. Right after it does so, the picture is stuck in a freeze-frame for about half a second.

Question: Is there any particular reason why Maleficent needs to lure Aurora up into the tower to have her prick her finger? We see that Maleficent magically creates the spinning wheel herself, so couldn't she have just done that in Aurora's bedchamber?

Answer: Being that Aurora is a princess, she would have many servants and other attendants constantly tending to her. They could conceivably discover the spinning wheel and prevent Aurora from pricking her finger inside her bedroom. Luring her into the tower makes her more vulnerable. It also adds to the story's drama and suspense.
