Synopsis

Maleficent, the evil fairy who cursed Princess Aurora in Sleeping Beauty, was once a beautiful, pure-hearted young woman living an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom. One day an invading army of humans threatened the land where she lived and Maleficent proved herself to be a fierce protector.

When she's ruthlessly betrayed, her pure heart turns to stone. Wanting revenge, Maleficent decides to place a curse on Aurora, the newborn infant of the human king. But as the child grows up, Maleficent realizes Aurora may be the kingdom's only chance for peace.
