Reasons Why Sleeping Beauty is the Worst Disney Princess Movie Ever

These are reasons why I think that Sleeping Beauty is the worst Disney Princess movie ever.

The Top Ten

1 The plot is kinda dumb

I don't agree. Frozen is way worse. - Goatworlds

Yeah I don't like Frozen either, but it's your opinion. Though the last time I was forced to watch this movie I actually rooted for Maleficent to win. - Anonymousxcxc

I know that it's an adaptation of the original fairy tale, but it's still a sucky plot. - Anonymousxcxc

I only like Maleficient.

2 The characters are underdeveloped

Even Maleficent is underdeveloped all we know is that she's an evil fairy who didn't get invited to Aurora's dumb christening and is now set out to find her, but why didn't she get invited and why did she curse the baby? And why the heck is she evil? - Anonymousxcxc

They're all so one dimensional. Especially Aurora and Prince...whatever his name is. - eventer51314

3 Prince Phillip is stereotypical

He is the stereotypical pretty boy that you fall in love with in seconds and the stereotypical hero of the story. - Anonymousxcxc

Aren't all Disney princes stereotypical? - Dawscr

Every Prince is stereotypical - Brobusky

Not necessarily. There is Prince Harry who does some race thing in Antarctica honoring wounded soldiers (at least that's what I believe the race is about). - Anonymousxcxc

All of the princes were stereotypical. - DynastiSugarPop

4 The fairies are annoying

Oh my gosh they are so annoying. Like who cares what color of dress Aurora is wearing. - Anonymousxcxc

5 Aurora is more of a supportive character when the movie is all about her

Yeah, she's basically just the pretty princess, love interest but otherwise useless character. - eventer51314

She literally has around 18 lines in the whole movie. Enough said. - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

Actually, the whole plot is centered around her. Without Aurora this movie would have no plot, thanks.

Yes but if she had been around just a little bit longer in the movie then this part of the list wouldn't even be here. That's why I put it in there. Also if you read the last few words of this part of the list it says that the movie is all about her, though she gave me the feeling of a supportive character because she wasn't around much. Though if I had seen the movie without ever reading the title and had no idea what it was about I probably would have thought that Prince Phillip was the main character instead of Aurora. - Anonymousxcxc

It's a Prince Philip movie. Come on now.
Admit it. These people probobly told everyone about Aurora coming out, but they realized how bad it was. They should make a live-action movie about Prince Philip, like they did to Malifecent - Untildawn8

6 Maleficent has idiotic henchmen

She really does. - Anonymousxcxc

7 The live action remake movie called Maleficent is way better

Nothing can beat the originals.

I know but the live action remake actually shows Aurora more often and possible relationships between certain characters. Plus Aurora is actually well developed in this movie and it's just beautiful. Also I have seen some other movies where the sequel was better than the original, so that comment was kinda stereotyped. - Anonymousxcxc

8 Aurora is a blond carbon copy of Snow White

Hold on, I'm not trying to offend Snow White and I am well aware that she was in all of her movie and Snow White is one of my favorite princesses too, I'm just noting that Aurora is kind of a ripoff of her. I'm very sorry if I offended you. - Anonymousxcxc

WHY! Why bring snow white into this! at least snow white was in all her movie! Without snow white your favourite Disney movies would not be here today! Leave snow white alone! I really take offense to this - Disneyfan2005

9 Aurora looks older than sixteen

I respect your opinion, but Sleeping Beauty is easily one of my favorite movies of all time. It played a huge part in Walt's career, and everything about it to me is lovely and just interesting. I do agree that yes, Aurora is a bland character. She only had 18 minutes of screen time. But the rest of plot with all of the action, suspense, songs, and beautiful romance, make this movie a classic. It was my childhood basically!

Like I said before, I respect your opinion and I know that you dislike the movie and I'm not saying anything against you, I'm just going to say that I love it. ☺️ It's a cute movie. - MontyPython

She looks like a 23-year-old. - DynastiSugarPop

10 The constant change of dress color

The Contenders

11 Sleeping Beauty has 18 minutes of screen time

You snooze you lose.

Ikr! And 18 lines, too!

12 Maleficent is the only likeable character

I hate Maleficent. She's the true annoying character of the movie

13 The three fairies getting to live

I mean I still have the same feelings about this list but my god this part just reeks of immaturity. - Anonymousxcxc

There is no reason for them to die though, besides being annoying.

I know that now. This part was a sign of my past immaturity (sure I'm not the most mature person in the world still, but current me would never write this part of the list). - Anonymousxcxc

15 Phillip seems to be more prominent even though he's not the main character

Ikr. He is probobly secretly the main character, but Cinderella, the Disney princess before Aurora, and Ariel needed a smaller space gap. Aurora was never meant to EXSIST. Probobly, I don't know. - Untildawn8

16 Maleficent is the least underdeveloped character
17 Aurora is a Mary Sue
