What is the Story of Maleficent?
Maleficent is known to be the dark tale beyond the conventional fairy tale charms as it follows the story of a fairy who after being betrayed turned into a dark fairy, and head on to take revenge from her former lover, Stefan who betrayed her.
On the way to take revenge, she cursed Stefan’s newborn baby girl that on her 16th birthday she will fall into a deep sleep upon touching the spindle of a spinning wheel, and would not be able to wake up again.
Anyhow, on Stefan’s sobbing, and begging, Maleficent offered him the cure of the curse. The sleeping curse can be broken only on the true love’s kiss which presumably doesn’t exist.
Consequently, Maleficent develops a soft corner for the daughter of Steffan named Arora. Maleficent used to watch Arora from afar, and upon realizing this Arora went to meet her. Arora also started liking her and give her a title of her Fairy Godmother.
After getting attached to Arora, Maleficent tried her best to break the curse but all in vain as only true love’s kiss could break the curse.
Meanwhile, Phillips who’s a prince entered in Arora’s life who thought to be her true love. On the other hand, on Arora’s 16th birthday she came to learn about Maleficent’s truth and went to her father’s castle where Stefan locked her down in a room to safeguard her from the curse.
Miraculously, Arora happened to put her finger on the spindle of the spinning wheel as the power of the curse make it happen in spite of all the precautionary measures.
Maleficent after learning this, abducted Philips and took her to Arora so that his kiss could wake her up. But contrary to the expectation, Philip failed in doing so.
Whereas, Maleficent’s kiss of true motherly love succeeds in waking up Arora, and proved her unconditional love for Arora.
Well, in the end, Stephan died while trying to kill Maleficent. After that, Arora went with Maleficent to live in Moors.
