Sleeping Beauty mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Anytime the eye colors of the fairies are shown, Fauna's are very obviously brown. However, when the fairies are with Aurora after the curse takes place, a close-up of Fauna holding a handkerchief shows her with blue eyes.

Continuity mistake: When Merryweather makes the dress blue a second time, it starts off on a ribbon that wraps itself around the dress waistline. The ribbon doesn't make it onto the completed dress.

Suggested correction: Hardly a mistake, since they're using magic and the dress changes multiple times.

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.

Trivia: If you look closely, there are many "Mickeys" in the scenery. For example, look in the bushes in various scenes and you will see three circles that form Mickey's head.

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.
