I hate you, beastie.
Aurora, there is an evil in this world, hatred and betrayal. And I cannot keep you from it.
While it may seem silly to make this connection, it’s important to note how significant Maleficent’s wings are to her. They are her source of power in a conflicted world, and as she ages, they increase in power. Like a young woman’s sexuality, they are precious, and the crude way in which they are sawed off her back — her trust broken, her body violated — leaves her ravaged inside and out. This is, indeed, the moment Maleficent becomes a villain — except that she’s not really a villain at all. Her choices are driven at every turn by this moment of betrayal, and what happens next is really a survival story, as she slowly learns to love and trust again. (x)
