Guarded by goons and surrounded by craggy peaks, this forbidding castle is the scary site of both fearsome plotting and sinister celebration.

Based on original film animation art and an architectural schematic drawing by Disney Imagineer Larry Nikolai, this castle stands 10 1/2 tall atop a custom hardwood base. Castle includes a sound clip with music and narration, a Walt Disney Classics Collection first! The music and narration are from the digitally remastered Sleeping Beauty film sequence which introduces Maleficent’s Castle. The narration goes as follows. For everyone knew that as long as Maleficent’s domain, the Forbidden Mountains, thundered with her wrath and frustration, her evil prophecy had not yet been fulfilled… Pressing a button on the hardwood base (a nice black lacquer), this sound clip starts playing approx. 23 seconds and LED lights within the castle flash to replicate lightning. Powered by 3 AA batteries (not included). Limited to 500 pieces; comes with a Disney numbered Certificate of Authenticity and statue gift box. Betrothed at birth to Prince Phillip (the son of a neighboring king), the infant Aurora is blessed with the gifts of beauty and song by the good fairies of the kingdom. However, fate’s icy hand brings an uninvited guest to the christening and the evil fairy Maleficent curses the child to die by the prick of a spinning wheel’s spindle before her 16th birthday. Struggling to prevent this catastrophe, the good fairies hide the princess in a secluded cottage in the glen. The years pass and Aurora blossoms into a lovely but lonely young woman unaware of her real name and birthright. Playacting with the forest animals at what it might be like to meet a prince, Princess Aurora, now called “Briar Rose, ” meets a very real peasant boy. Although neither of them knows who the other is, the couple falls in love at first sight. When the good fairies reveal Princess Aurora’s birthright to her, instead of joy, an awful sadness comes over her. For she believes she must sacrifice her true love to the “right and royal duty” of marrying Prince Phillip, a stranger. Just as she’s about to discover that the two are one and the same, she’s stricken by Maleficent’s terrible curse. All seems lost but for one glimmer of hope… Only true love’s kiss can wake this sleeping beauty from an eternal slumber.
