|First Appearance||Sleeping Beauty (1959)|
Prince Phillip is the hero of Sleeping Beauty and Aurora's true love, voiced by Bill Shirley. Phillip is based on the prince from the original fairy tale that appears a hundred years after the princess is put to sleep by the curse of the wicked fairy godmother, having heard the story of the sleeping princess, and entered the castle. He trembled upon seeing the princess's beauty and fell on his knees before her. He kissed her, then she woke up, and then everyone lived happily ever after. Unlike the prince from Snow White and the Seven Dwarves and Prince Charming from Cinderella, Phillip was the first prince in Disney theatrical animated features to be given a proper name and a full character.
At Aurora's birth, it was said that Philip would marry the princess, the daughter of his father's best friend. A young Phillip presents a gift to the infant Aurora at her christening, but ironically is less than impressed when he sees her. The event is interrupted by Maleficent, who appears and curses Aurora, causing the Three Good Fairies to take Aurora into the forest to raise her. However, much like the Snow Prince in Snow White, Phillip is riding in the forest and hears Aurora, now known as Briar Rose, singing. He follows her voice and starts singing with her. She tries to run away, but he follows her. By the end of the song, they have fallen in love. However, Aurora realises she is disobeying her "aunts" and leaves, but not before telling Phillip she will be celebrating her birthday at her cottage in the middle of the forest. After being captured by Maleficent and thrown into her dungeon after arriving at Briar Rose's home, the Three Good Fairies rescue him so that he in turn can save Aurora. Phillip leaves Maleficent's castle and is target of the wicked fairy's fury, who casts all sort of spells at him, including lightnings and a forest of thorns round King Stefan's castle. At the gates of the castle, Phillip faces a terrible battle with Maleficent herself, who has assumed dragon form. The battle ends with her being killed and him narrowly escaping with his life. He kisses Aurora and she wakes up. They then go downstairs, arm in arm, and share a dance after Aurora meets her parents.
Prince Phillip is currently fighting against Katara in his first FFA battle.
