Second only to Dumbo (who doesn’t speak at all), Aurora had the least lines of any Disney Movie lead. The princess spoke less than 20 lines in the whole film. As the voice of Princess Aurora, Mary Costa became entwined with the character.

The scenes where the two fairies couldn’t agree on whether the dress should be pink or blue is inspired by the filmmaker’s own indecision on the dress’s colour. The iconic song of Sleeping Beauty is “Once Upon a Dream” is the focus of our article. Enjoy these amazing covers! Continue reading Disney and Dreams; Covering Sleeping Beauty

Continue reading The Hunchback of Notre Dame; Covering HellFire

That contrast makes the whimsy that Mary Poppins brings forth to the children and the audience for that matter, all the more sensational. The highlighted song for this article from the gorgeous 1964 film is, of course, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. Check the highlighted covers below!
