This scene is SO important. Maleficent is with someone she trusts, someone she considers a friend. And then the next thing she knows, she wakes up in pain, bleeding, with her wings burned off. A huge part of her has been destroyed.

Rape is so prominent in our culture that it is in a Disney movie. Maybe not explicitly, but it is very clear what this scene represents and it is so sad.

I fucking cried my eyes out during this scene

This scene……… Utter heartbreak……….


My dear,
Remember that you were not born bathed in bright white
Light and crowned in faerie’s forest
Flowers; delicate and holy and demure-
but rather bore bloody in the black of night
When the moon was hidden, so that you would know the
Gentle arms of love and rest before you are blinded by the sun.

Remember that you are teeth and flesh and honoured and loved.
