Ok so Disney is turning their most iconic villain from the 1959 classic "Sleeping Beauty" into a misunderstood girl who's out for revenge. I thought she was pure evil, and she's supposed to be the kickass bad guy!
Here is an excerpt of Google's synopsis of Maleficent:
The untold story of Disney's most iconic villain from the 1959 classic "Sleeping Beauty." A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman with stunning black wings, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army of humans threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land's fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal - an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the king of the humans and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom - and to Maleficent's true happiness as well.
What the heck. So Maleficent is really fighting for peace, just like how Professor Snape from Harry Potter turned out to be a decent guy after all? Geez! Can't people leave villains to be villains? Next thing you know, Disney's movie about Cruella will turn out to be about some sad, lonely, betrayed woman who had helpless psychological issues with dogs with spots.
