  1. Sleeping Beauty Castle was the first attraction to open before the movie. The castle opened in 1955 with Disneyland, and the movie "Sleeping Beauty" was released four years later in 1959! "A Bug's Life" will be second and "Dinosaurs" will be third.

  2. When Maleficant falls through the pathway as a dragon after Philip kills her, Philip had just jumped to avoid her bite. However, there is no way possible for him not to have fallen with her because he was right by her head and she broke off too much of the path.

  4. When the sword hits the big black dragon at the end, the dragon opens its mouth to scream, but there is no sound!
    REPORTED: anon 16 JAN 99
    Actually, where the sword peirces the dragon, it would have not only gone through a main artery, but also the vocal box and wind pipe, thus exuding no sound. Not a mistake, but actual planned loss of noise.

  5. The fire-blast sounds used for the huge black dragon Malificent turns into are of actual flamethowers.
    REPORTED: anon 16 JAN 99
  6. Has anyone else noticed that her eyes are brown throughout the movie until the scene when Prince Philip wakes her up - then they are blue!
