Maleficent is a fairy but notably resembles more of a harpy, the hybrid, winged creature from the Greek and Roman mythologies with the parts of a woman and a bird. See more »
Maleficent's curse is for Aurora to fall into a "sleep like death, from which she shall never awaken". While some have interpreted this to be backwards, a "sleep like death" is just "death-like sleep" in a different order. See more »
Let us tell an old story anew, and we will see how well you know it. Once upon a time, there were two kingdoms that were the worst of neighbors. So vast was the discord between them that it was said only a great hero or a terrible villain might bring them together. In one kingdom lived folk like you and me, with a vain and greedy king to rule over them. They were forever discontent, and envious of the wealth and beauty of their neighbors.

First of all, the story surprised me a bit: Maleficent's chick bones. The fact she's not a witch, she's a fairy. The villain & hero twist. The prince's kiss didn't work, but a mother's true love kiss bring Aurora's back from her death sleep. After Aurora's waking up and Maleficent got her wings back, the war still going. Why? The king went mad¡¡¡¡ The prince role was very insignificant in this new version, but I like it anyway. Also the king's character was small,a girl grown up away from her parents 16 years and she didn't troubled at all when her father died. Aurora smiles all the time, she's a happy girl and never fall into sadness because a fairy cast spell on her. But SHE SMILES A LOT, I WANTED HER TO SLEEP FOREVER¡¡¡¡ For many people this film was disappointing, NOT FOR ME. I enjoyed very much. The visual effects was stunning, the music,and the credit'song "Once Upon A Dream" by Lana Del Rey sounded creepy. So much talk about this movie. I challenged myself to watch it. I really liked. Angelina Jolie re-defined herself as super star status. A Villain Diva of this times imitated by many fairies.
