Maleficent is on BBC One today at 3pm.
It’s a fantasy adventure reimagining of the classic Sleeping Beauty fairy tale, told from the perspective of the evil godmother. A powerful faerie is betrayed by the human peasant boy she loves, as his affections are overshadowed by his desires to become king. Vowing revenge, Maleficent places a curse on King Stefan’s newborn daughter Aurora, a curse which will send the princess into a death-like sleep on her sixteenth birthday.
