Random Thursday

Time for another round of factoids regarding Disney's Sleeping Beauty! Again, all these factoids are from past Disney desk calendar pages that I saved when I was younger. I was a bit of a geek back then...a different kind of geek...a geek with different quirks!


"This was the first Disney animated feature to be produced in 70mm widescreen format."

That's interesting!
 

"Walt Disney's personal nickname for Mary Costa, the voice of Princess Aurora, was 'little bird'."


"Aurora holds the distinction of being the first of the Disney animated princesses to wear a royal crown."

I totally see that now!
 

"Aurora's original character design was modeled after screen beauty Audrey Hepburn."

With these pictures, I can totally see it!
