Sleeping Beauty (1959)Walt Disney Pictures

A classic from Disney that for many is ideal image that comes to mind whenever the story is brought up. The visuals, coloring, and a brief meeting between Princess Aurora and Prince Philip gives a little more backstory as to the eventual romance and even gives the Fairy, Maleficent, more screen time to highlight the length of her evil nature.

Maleficent, Walt Disney Pictures (2014)

A live-action film that inverts the initial stories premise, a narrative where Maleficent is the focus. It does bring in factors from other tales, how the king’s cruelty and carelessness causes more harm, but adds a curious mother-daughter relationship between Maleficent and Princess Aurora with the Prince barely in the story. It creates a more female-centered story than in the past narrative that can be of interest for people interested in a story where women have more agency.
