8 What Color Is Cinderella's Dress?
Every doll, poster, piece of merchandise, and live action adaptation which includes the beloved and classic ball gown that Cinderella is gifted with by the fairy godmother features a honey blonde Cinderella with a lovely blue dress. However, these were not the colors used in the original film.
The original/true colors of both her hair and dress were strawberry blonde (a relatively ginger shade) and white, respectively. The hair and dress only appeared yellow and blue due to the shading used to create a dark/nighttime scene during the ball sequence, and is merely a trick of the eye. However, the misinterpretation stuck and all official versions of Cinderella products include the incorrect colors.
7 What Is Snow White's First Line?
The title character of the film is one that one would assume is quite vital to the story being told, so one would only assume that their first lines are incredibly important to know. Disney’s Snow White follows the tale of a young girl who is hunted down repeatedly by her evil stepmother until the former receives her well deserved happily ever after and the latter finds herself at the bottom of a cliff. Snow White is the first princess in the Disney oeuvre so her first spoken line in the film would technically be considered the first line ever spoken by a Disney princess; which is an incredibly fascinating thing to consider. Snow White’s first line was “Want to Know a Secret? Promise Not to tell?”
6 How Many Lines Does Aurora Have?
Though she is the title character of the film, Aurora does not have that many lines in Sleeping Beauty. The princess spends the majority of the film either below speaking age or in a magically induced coma, which makes speaking a little difficult on her part.

One must also consider the fact that a large portion of Aurora’s conscious and adult screen time is spent singing songs or giving her guardians the silent treatment because of her anger at not being allowed to run off with a relative stranger that she met while dancing through the woods. It turns out that, throughout the entire film, Aurora was only given eighteen lines.
5 What Transformed Merida's Mother Into A Bear?
After following the wisps, Merida finds herself in a witch’s cottage and becomes the owner of an edible object that will (hopefully) end the discord between her and her mother. The magical edible object is a special cake that she presents to her mother - which has the unintended side effect of turning her into a literal bear. The half-eaten cake is left unattended in the kitchen and Merida’s three younger brothers do what every child does when they find an unattended treat with no one around to catch them: they eat it and become bears themselves.
4 What Wrong Names Did Eric Guess?
While trying to solve the secret of the mute redheaded girl's identity, Prince Eric decides to play guessing game of sorts in order to figure out her name. The names in which he guesses before Sebastian reveals her true name are Mildred, Diana, and Rachel.
Some fans wonder why Ariel did not simply write her name down; however, some believe that Mermaids did not write in a language that Eric would recognize and the contract she signed showed her name for the benefit of the audience. Similar to how Tarzan can speak with the gorillas in a language recognizable to the audience but cannot speak with the humans at first even though, to the audience, they are speaking the same language.

2 What Does Jasmine Object To Be Treated As?

As if she is something that can be bought with lavish gifts and the promise of more riches than she could acquire on her own rather than a human being with her own rights, wants, and desires.
