7. Evil Queen transforms into an old Hag
This scared the living daylights out of me when I was a kid, but now, looking back, it's a really great scene. It shows her in her secret lab (which is creepy but totally cool!) mixing together a potion that will disguise her. She takes a sip and starts choking and acting like she's dying. Then she turns around, and YIKES! She be ugly.
6. Maleficent transforms into a dragon
This broad totally gave me the heebie jeebies as a kid. My Mom would have to fast vooruit, voorwaarts through any of her scenes. But this scene especially scared the hell out of me. Of course now, it doesn't scare me. This is such a climactic moment in the film, as the brave Prince Phillip battles Maleficent. It's an excellent bit of animatie if ya asked me!
5. Ariel transformed into a human (again)
This is such a bittersweet scene to me. King Triton watches over his daughter while she sits lonely on a rock, DYING to be with the man that she loves. He finally realizes that she'll never be happy unless she is a human. So, he decides to let her go. He points his Trident her way and transforms her...making her dreams come true at last.
4. Tiana and Naveen transform back into humans
These two love each other so much that they were willing to be frogs for the rest of their lives in order to be together. They get married in the bayou door Mama Odie, and when they kiss, they magically transform. It's a sweet scene, even though it reminds me of Princess Odette's transformations in "The zwaan-, zwaan Princess".
3. Ariel transforms into a human (for the first time)
This scene is very dramatic. Ariel has just made a deal with Ursula in order to become human. My favoriete part of this transformation is when she comes up to the surface, throws her head back, and takes her very first human breath.
2. The Beast transforms into a human
This is probably one of Disney's most dramatic scenes, in my opinion. The Beast has just died, as Belle hugs him tightly, whispering the words "I love you" to him for the first time. It seems that all hope is lost. But then his body rises in the air and begins to transform into a man. He turns around and he is beautiful...a bit girly to some, with his long hair and luscious blue eyes.
1. Cinderella's dress transformation
BIG surprise, I know! This scene never loses its magic. I still feel like a little girl whenever I watch this film, but especially this part. This gorgeous dress just forms around her and it sparkles and shines like no other dress we've ever seen. It's a a work of art; a beautiful piece of animation. No wonder it was Walt's favorite!
