I never expected the Bible from them, but this seems over the top. Via Asleep No More: Selling Evil To You And Your Children.
Maleficent is an evil fairy, she always has been by intention. She’s been the foul enemy in numerous Disney films, TV shows and video games. She is a personification of Satan. She is never portrayed as anything but the most wicked person in the world, the self proclaimed “Mistress of All Evil” Her devilish horns are intended to look like Baphomet, and her evil minion was Diablo (spanish for devil). This is the message and the symbolism of Sleeping Beauty: Maleficent is Satan – dark and evil, King Stephan is the loving father/lord, Aurora is the anyperson loved and prized by King Stefan and hated by Maleficent because King Stefan loves her so much, and Prince Phillip is the savior of Aurora who loves her as much as King Stefan loves her.
Now Disney turns everything around: King Stefan is no longer hereditary king, he’s a peasant planning to assume the crown by any means, and Maleficent is his ‘girlfriend’. Maleficent defeats the old king in a battle and the king offers his throne to whomever defeats her. Stefan drugs Maleficent, attempts to kill her, and instead cuts her wings off, a scene that has been interpreted by many reviews as metaphoric rape. Stefan then uses those wings as proof that he killed Maleficent in order to gain the throne.
Maleficent and her evil minion Daival (just a creative spelling of Devil) spy on King Stefan, and just as in Sleeping Beauty Maleficent crashes the christening of Princess Aurora, places a death curse on the infant , the curse gets modified but Aurora still pricks her finger on a spinning wheel and falls asleep.
Now the story starts to twist more and more. King Stefan’s castle, once beautiful but sad because Aurora couldn’t live there (in Sleeping Beauty) is now dark and filled with traps and spikes. Where the Sleeping Beauty King Stefan was worried about Aurora, this King Stefan is worried about himself and has Aurora locked up when he meets her. After Aurora falls asleep rather than storming the castle and battling Maleficent and rescuing Princess Aurora, Prince Phillip is dragged to the castle by Maleficent (who had a change of heart) but his kiss is ineffectual and he just kind of wanders off stupidly. It’s Maleficent who kisses Aurora and revives her. In the battle scene where once upon a time the Savior Prince Phillip fought and slew Maleficent and saved Aurora, it’s now King Stefan battling Maleficent who now has her wings back (thanks to Aurora) and she slays King Stefan. Princess Aurora eventually marries Prince Philip, and Aurora intones “My kingdom was united by one who was both hero and villain.”
So there you have it, the good King and lord becomes a power hungry madman bent on murder, his beautiful castle is a deathtrap, the savior is an impotent stuffed shirt, the anyperson owes her very existence to the personification of evil, and the personification of evil is really a Nice Person. The whole thing made me sick.
We’ve all heard of God’s Plan of Salvation, this movie is Satan’s Plan of Damnation put up on the big screen for everyone to see. It expresses exactly what Satan wants us to believe – sure he did a bad thing or two in the past, but GOD’s really the bad one. Speak to any evangelical Atheist. You know the type, the ones that are nearly foaming at the mouth in rage when ever Jesus’ name is mentioned (oddly pagan deities like Buddha, Vishnu, Odin, or Allah don’t seem to bother them), they are convinced that the God they don’t believe in is the root of all evil. (They honestly do!)
