Princess and Childhood
That's the components of most of our childhood, I bet we all know Princess Snow White, Belle, Aurora, Ariel and many more and they all come from Walt Disney, I believe that when we all young we all want to be a princess I myself still want to be a princess. And every princess have a unique story life and unique antagonist.
Who is Maleficent?
For me, Maleficent is the very definition of pure evil and wicked and unique antagonist in every antagonist princess story, Why? Let me tell you then, Ursula from The little Mermaid wants to be the Queen of the sea, while Gaston on the Sleeping Beauty is a narcissistic, conniving, and greedy that wants to own Belle, The Queen from the Snow White is a obsessed with being "the fairest in the land" which she wants Snow White dead, Mother Gothel from Rapunzel locks rapunzel selfishly to use her magical hair to make her beautiful every now and then. My very point is Maleficent dont want anything! Shes just hysterical because shes not been invited into a royal christening, that's make her unique, she doesn't want power, beauty nor richness!
Maleficent is a fictional character from Walt Disney Pictures's 1959 film Sleeping Beauty. She is the (self-proclaimed) Mistress of All Evil, who, after not being invited to a royal christening, curses the infant Princess Aurora to "prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and die" before the sun sets on her sixteenth birthday. The character is Disney's version of the wicked fairy godmother from the original French fairy tale.
“A forest of thorns shall be his tomb!
Borne through the skies on a fog of doom!
Now go with the curse, and serve me well!
'Round Stefan's castle, CAST MY SPELL!!!!”

But this 2014 Walt Disney Pictures Present a side of the Sleeping Beauty
"Maleficent" Movie explores the untold story of Disney's most iconic villain from the classic "Sleeping Beauty" and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turn her pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king's newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy.
