Maleficent is my favorite witch for several reasons. First off she is so Avant Garde and its just flat out awesome, ok, but seriously, I chose her because her background story is powerful and relatable. I really love the Angelina Jolie version; she is innocent, full hearted and kind. However she is betrayed by her one true love which causes her to turn to a very dark side and seek revenge on him. She seeks her revenge through the innocence of his first born, placing a curse on her for the day she turns 16 of an endless sleep that can only be broken by one true loves kiss. Later on in his young daughters life she befriends Maleficent whom she thinks is her godmother. Maleficent then realizes the damage she has done as her bond grows with the young girl. On the girls 16 birthday the curse falls upon her, Maleficent visits her as she sleep, confessing her love, sorrows and sadness for what she has done, she kisses the girl on the cheek apologizing. With that the girl wakes up because maleficent love for the child was true love as she’s watched her grow from a child to young girl and created such a unbreakable bond through it! My favorite parts are the action scenes before battle and therefore I have based my piece around that!
