In the original Sleeping Beauty, the curse was that the princess would sleep for 100 years. The good fairies placed the thorns there to protect the princess and the court until some random prince who'd heard the legends could show up in 100 years time, at which point the thorns would part and he would show up to kiss the girl. And then they had to deal with his ogress child eating mother. Disney's version of the story is the first to actually use the dark fairy beyond the point of the curse. In no other version does she transform into a dragon in an attempt to defeat the prince, who in Disney's version actually has some relevance to the story.
So provided that Disney tells this version of a fairy tale well, I'm not overly concerned about whatever twists they put on their version of the story.

I mean, there are so many good Grim and Anderson fairy tales.
I don't really know why they picked one that doesn't have very much depth to it.
i mean, there a limit as to how far you can stretch the story.
But, I'm optimistic and am sure that, if anyone can pull of tihs story, its Disney.
