Best known as the heroine of the 1959 animated classic Sleeping Beauty which is very loosely based on Charles Perrault’s “La Belle au Bois Dormant”. Although her dress changes from blue to pink thanks to disagreement between two of her guardians, Merryweather and Flora. Outside the film she is most commonly seen wearing pink. She was cursed at birth to die before the sun sets on her 16th birthday by the evil fairy Maleficent. One of the three good fairies, Merryweather, was able to weaken the curse by changing death to a deep slumber that could only be awakened by true love’s kiss. By falling in love with Prince Phillip, the prince of a neighboring kingdom–and unknown to either of them, her betrothed) she was freed from the curse. Aurora is shown to be one of the taller princesses in the franchise.
