Ever since I heard this:
Elle Fanning stars as Aurora and Sharlto Copley is Stefan, the half-human and half-fairy bastard son of the human king.
It makes me think that they are going to go down the horrible cliche road of Stefan ~rejecting~ Maleficent’s romantic advances, thus causing her to turn to evil and baby-cursing and dragon experimentation, because that’s just what crazy bitches do. I don’t trust Hollywood to make a compelling, non-insulting villainess backstory that does not involve daddy issues, resentment about ex-lovers, or jealousy of younger, prettier women.
this also reminds me that my bff and her wife plan to name their next daughter Stephanie Aurora and I wonder if they’ve thought that out all the way through
