~ Sleeping Beauty (1959) ~
One of my favourite movies from my childhood was Disney's classic Sleeping Beauty, about Princess Aurora / Briar Rose or Tornerose as we call her in Norwegian. It's such a great movie with a sweet story, beautiful illustrations, magnificent characters and it's still one of my favourites as a grown up :)
I have very strong memories with this film. My father lived in Sudan in Africa most of my childhood and my mom, sister and I often went there to visit. Sometimes we spent months there. One of the few things we brought with us was that movie. We obviously saw it again and again, since it was one of the new things we had that reminded us of home.
At one point my little sister and I created our own ritual when we watched Sleeping Beauty: We always ate these crazy-coloured cereals bare! At one point the taste experience and the visual experience fusioned together. It is very interesting how our senses is connected, how everything is connected, and I remember the first time we watched the movie without the cereal when we got back to Norway.
Something was not right, and it was so strange! :)
I also remember being obsessed with her outfit, and dreamt about having something similar *sigh* Little did I know that that would actually happen one day^^
Just look at this stunning scenery!
- Have you seen Sleeping Beauty? Do you like Disney? :)
Ps: I always loved Maleficent, and I am really exited that Disney are making a movie about her! I just can't wait to see it! Are you going to see it? Watch (one of) the trailer(s) here. I don't know how many times I've seen them! :3
