Sleeping Beauty

Trivia: Look carefully at Merryweather's biscuit at the beginning of the movie. It's one of the many Mickey Mouse shapes that appear throughout the film.

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.
