Maleficent is an anecdotal character who shows up in Walt Disney Productions’ sixteenth energized highlight film, Sleeping Beauty. She is a detestable pixie and oneself declared  herself as the “Special lady of All Evil” who, after not being welcome to a dedicating, curses the newborn child Princess Aurora to “prick her finger on the shaft of a turning haggle” before the sun sets on Aurora’s sixteenth birthday celebration.

She is voiced by Eleanor Audley, who prior voiced Lady Tremaine, Cinderella’s shrewd stepmother, in Cinderella. She fills in as a common rival in Disney’s House of Mouse, voiced by Lois Nettleton, and in the Kingdom Hearts computer game arrangement, voiced by Susanne Blakeslee. She is likewise a rival in the Disney Channel motion picture Descendants, depicted by Kristin Chenoweth.

In the enlivened film, Maleficent lands at King Stefan and Queen Leah’s stronghold during the initiating of their infant girl, the Princess Aurora. She communicates disappointment about not getting a grand welcome, to which one of the great pixies Merryweather answers that she was undesirable.

Infuriated, she gets ready to leave. Ruler Leah inquires as to whether she is affronted, making Maleficent deny her fierceness, and thusly offers to present a “blessing” on Aurora to demonstrate that she “bears no hostility”. Pernicious affirms that Aurora will develop in effortlessness and magnificence, “dearest by all who know her”, however as retribution for not being welcomed, she puts a revile on Aurora so that before the sun sets on her sixteenth birthday celebration, she will prick her finger on the axle of a turning haggle.

Maleficent leaves with the Royal Guards who are unfit to hold onto her. Merryweather, who still has a blessing to give, can’t scatter Maleficent’s capacity, however can debilitate revile so Aurora will fall into a profound rest rather, with just a kiss from her genuine affection expected to stir her. Afterward, at her château in the Forbidden Mountains, a baffled Maleficent asks her brutal armed force for what good reason they have been not able discover Aurora, who had been covered up and raised by the three great pixies.

Baneful discovers that they have concentrated on scanning for a child the whole time, despite the fact that years have passed. She flies into a dangerous fierceness, and soon urgently trains her pet raven, Diablo, to discover Aurora. The feathered creature figures out how to prevail because of a mystical fight between two of the pixies, which uncovered their area.

On the night of Aurora’s sixteenth birthday celebration, after the three pixies have quickly disregarded the discouraged princess, Maleficent visits Aurora as a will-o-the-wisp, baiting the princess to a room where Maleficent changes into a turning wheel. Aurora pricks her finger on the axle, satisfying revile.

Later on, Maleficent and her goons catch Prince Phillip, Aurora’s genuine affection, and detain him. Evil at that point rests well, supposing she has triumphed. Evil later awakens and, by observing that Diablo has been gone to stone, finds that the pixies have liberated Philip from her cell.

She moves to the highest point of one of her palace’s towers and continues to shoot Philip with lightning, and after the great pixies foil these endeavors, she gathers a backwoods of thistles, through which Philip cuts out. Goaded, she overwhelms and goes up against him before King Stefan’s manor, and changes into an enormous dull winged serpent.

The three pixies cast an upgrading charm on Phillip’s Sword of Truth, which he tosses into Maleficent’s heart, mortally injuring her before she tumbles off the disintegrating precipice to her demise.

“Maleficent has suffered abuse in the past, and there’s a reason why she is now as furious as she is. And I think that children who have been outcast and abused in any way will relate to her. There’s a beautiful side to her; she’s not just a dark person. She has all these facets. And that is interesting.”

“The first draft you’re pretty much on your own, so I love that. I can let my imagination go wild. I just go crazy. Then, over the years – it takes years to write these things, to make these things come to pass – there are many, many, many drafts. For Maleficent, there were at least 15.”

“I wasn’t into fairytales when I was little. I was of the generation of the earlier Disney films where many of the female characters, with the exception of the Maleficent’s, were not little girls that I admired… the little princesses. They weren’t characters that I identified with. I think that’s very different now for my girls and more recent films.”

“Because we remember pain and the menace of death more vividly than pleasure, and because our feelings toward the beneficent aspects of the unknown have from the first been captured and formalised by conventional religious rituals, it has fallen to the lot of the darker and more maleficent side of cosmic mystery to figure chiefly in our popular supernatural folklore.”

“Tons of people want to see movies about women but they don’t want to make them. I don’t know why. I think that’s insane because look at some of these big movies like Maleficent, they’re huge. It’s ridiculous. So, it is really hard but I’m determined to do something about that.”

“Every night as I gazed up at the window I said softly to myself the word paralysis. It had always sounded strangely in my ears, like the word gnomon in the Euclid and the word simony in the Catechism. But now it sounded to me like the name of some maleficent and sinful being. It filled me with fear, and yet I longed to be nearer to it and to look upon its deadly work.”

“Not a day shall pass that I don’t miss your smile.”

“You poor, simple fools. Thinking you could defeat me.”

“You stole what was left of my heart.”

“No truer love.”

Maleficent: I like you begging. Do it again.
[Stefan hesitates a moment before kneeling in front of Maleficent]
Stefan: I beg you.
Maleficent: Alright. The princess can be woken from her death sleep, but only by true love’s kiss. This curse will last till the end of time! No power on Earth can change it!
[with her blast of green light surrounding her she leaves, laugh sinisterly]”

“Narrator: [voice over] King Stefan ordered his men to seize every spinning wheel in the kingdom. The wheels were broken and burned, that they might never be used, and thrown into the deepest dungeon in the castle.

Thistletwit: Oh, we need a smaller…
[they nearly drop Aurora as she’s too heavy for them]
Thistletwit: Ooh! Baby.
Flittle: Or bigger bodies.
Knotgrass: No, what we need is a proper disguise.
Flittle: What do you mean?
[they set Aurora down in her basket]
Knotgrass: Well, we have to blend in, don’t we? We have to be big enough to look after this baby. So, gather around, ladies. Get ready. One, two, three, grow!
[all three spin and suddenly turn into human-like forms]”

“[after turning into their human-like form]
Knotgrass: Oh, that’s worked quite well. That’s very nice. Now, there will be no questions asked. We are no longer fairies. We are three peasant women raising our orphan child in the woods.
Thistletwit: Yes.
Knotgrass: So, uh, no more flying.
Thistletwit: No flying?
Knotgrass: No, no, and no magic.
Thistletwit: No magic?
[in their excitement they leave baby Aurora and walk over the cottage]
Knotgrass: Yes, you heard.”

“[Aurora starts crying]
Flittle: It’s in the middle of nowhere.
Thistletwit: At least no one will find us here.
[the three fairies enter the house forgetting Aurora, then Diaval appears in his bird form and lands on Aurora’s basket for a moment when suddenly Thistletwit opens the cottage door and rushes towards Aurora]
Thistletwit: There you are. Why are you always hiding?
[she picks up Aurora in her basket]
Thistletwit: Come on. There you go.”

“[Diaval takes Maleficent to the fairies cottage and creeps to an open window and looks inside where the baby Aurora is in her basket]
Maleficent: Hmm. It’s so ugly, you could almost feel sorry for it.
[baby Aurora smiles adoringly at Maleficent, she then pulls a frightening face at Aurora but Aurora just continues to smile at her]
Maleficent: I hate you. Beasty.
[Maleficent hears the fairies inside the cottage, turns and walks away]”

“Narrator: [voice over] The fairies were perhaps unequal to their task.
[baby Aurora cries as the three fairies try to work outside their cottage]
Flittle: Why is she crying?
Thistletwit: I think she might be hungry.
Knotgrass: Then feed her!
Flittle: Oh.
[as Flittle goes to get her some food we see Diaval spying on them in his bird form]
Thistletwit: Hungry baby.
[Flittle places some carrots across baby Aurora’s basket]
Flittle: There you are. There you go.
[Diaval shakes his head, and as the baby continues to cry Maleficent covers her ears in frustration]
Maleficent: It’s going to starve with those three looking after it.”
