HOW CAN YOU GET ANGELINA JOLIE
TO PLAY MALEFICENT IN A FILM ALL ABOUT ONE OF DISNEY'S GREATEST VILLAINS, AND THEN F*** IT UP?!!!!!!!!!!!
I must thank DisneyDude
and Disney's Divinity
to make me feel like people actually care about what I say on this forum. I almost wanna a cry. Thanks guys lol.
Anyway, like a lot of people have said, it makes zero, zero, zero sense to have a movie entitled Maleficent but change all the rest of the names.
Linda Woolverton is now officially a menace that murders classic stories. Disney keeps her because she was good when she made Beauty and the Beast (and The Lion King?) and Alice made a lot of money despite her script.
But there is one thing that I think I may have realized. Maybe she calls them pixies to differentiate how Maleficent is different from them. Maybe she decided fairies would be beings without wings while pixies would have wings, as well as magical dust. It's still wrong according to the actual Disney films (and Shakespeare, lol), but having such a reasoning at least makes the idea bearable, if that's the case.
I'm badly hoping that they get their movie names later, but even if they do, that won't make things much better because the point of their names was that it represented their powers as fairies, one for plantlife and the other for animal life, another for weather. Maybe they do graduate to those names as they get their powers, who knows it's still mesed up.
Oh, but did anyone catch this?:
Sharlto Copley is Stefan, the half-human, half-fairy bastard son of the human king.
Um, bastard son? This may be the first time I know of Disney ever indicating that you can have babies with people other than your husband or wife...?!!!!
