Fairy Tale Collection: Sleeping Beauty

The King and Queen have invited all their newborn daughter’s fairy godmothers to celebrate her birth. All except one. Resentful and hurt, this fairy godmother curses the young Princess, predicting her death at the age of 15. Terrified of losing their daughter, the King and Queen raise the Princess practically as a prisoner within the castle. Shortly before her fifteenth birthday, the Princess falls in love with young Prince William and realizes that she has been forced to live a life of illusion. On her birthday, she pricks her finger, exactly as the evil godmother had predicted. But the curse has been weakened and the Princess falls into a deep sleep. Many years later a Prince arrives at the castle and awakens her to a new life with a gentle kiss. Now the entire court can celebrate the liberating power of true love.
