Sleeping Beauty

Issue Date: August 7, 2008
City:
Anaheim, CA

The story of Sleeping Beauty dates back over a thousand years to a Persian tale.  The most well-known version of the tale, La Belle au Bois Dormant, was written by Charles Perrault in 1697. 

A king and queen, who try for years to have a child, are finally blessed with a beautiful daughter.  They invite seven fairies to her christening, each one with a gift for the baby.  An evil fairy appears, angry for not being invited.  Her gift to the child is a curse that on her 16th birthday she will prick her finger on a spindle and die. 

Unable to reverse the spell, one of the good fairies alters it so that the princess will fall asleep for a hundred years upon pricking her finger.  The curse comes true.  The good fairy puts the entire court to sleep so the princess won’t be alone when she wakes up. 

Many years later, a prince finds the palace.  Fascinated by the princess’s beauty, he awakens her with a kiss.  The two then get married, joining both of their kingdoms and living happily ever after.

In 1959, Walt Disney released Sleeping Beauty, the 16th Disney animated feature film.  The film was nominated for an Academy Award and a Grammy.

Sleeping Beauty was honored on a 2008 U.S. postage stamp in part of the Art of Disney series.
