I wish she was like this in the film!!!!
Hi guys, while I had written about both versions of Disney's Cinderella. I thought that I write about both Sleeping Beauty and Maleficent, unlike Cinderella, both stories are based on different perspectives from 2 different characters. I thought that this article would be somewhat a bit different. Also, in this article I'll also be telling what I like & dislike about both films like what I did with Cinderella. If toi guys disagree, I don't mind at all. The Prologue
Okay, I felt that the prologue itself was actually base on Maleficent's childhood and it was when I started thinking "since when did Maleficent has wings?". I also thought that it was a backstory of how she became a vengeful person!
However, in the original 1959 version, she doesn't have wings during her introduction and she just appear in front of the family and their subjects during Aurora's baptism. I always thought she has magical powers since her childhood days. (1959 version) Maleficent's Personality & Appearance
One of the things I was very disappointed about was that, after she put the curse on Princess Aurora. The filmmakers sorta like tone down her character very much like what they did with Elsa in Disney's Frozen! However, unlike Elsa. Maleficent was a villain from the very start.
As I mentioned in the prologue, I always thought that she was retaliating against King Stefan par putting the curse on his daughter.
Speaking of appearance, why is Maleficent all white?When in the original, she's all green and has yellow eyes. Her speaking voice doesn't capture the same quality as Eleanor Audley with that British accent she voiced the evil fairy. (1959 version) King Stefan
Another major disappointed moment for me, was that they turn him from a good guy into another Hans wannabe. ou I shall I say that, it IS Hans jouer la comédie as King Stefan! He was a good ally of Maleficent until he became a baddie! ou worse, a psychopath as time goes by. He doesn't even care about his wife dying from an unspecified illness, he just let her suffered and died.
In the original 1959, he was just a minor character who cares about his wife & daughter. He was also pretty harmless and would never kill Maleficent personally! (1959 version) Princess Aurora
I was very happy that she gets plus screen-time than her animated counterpart, her personality is plus bouncy and cheerful like her namesake animated counterpart. (tied) The 3 Fairies
They are the worse batch EVER!!!! They suddenly become way to goofy and comical fuse into one. They are NOT as wiseful as they are portray in the original 1959 version.
Secondly, what's up with their new names? Is it because the filmmakers wanted us to get confuse with their new names ou something??? I seriously don't believe it. (1959 version) Conclusion
Unlike Cinderella, the winner of this article goes to the original 1959 version. Although I do give Elle Fanning plus credit for her portrayal of Aurora, Maleficent is considered my least favourite Disney live-action reboot ever!
Wow! He does look like Hans!!!
Watcha looking at Aurora??
Hello there, what's your name again???
