It is the story of why, the evil queen Maleficent, has decided to put a curse on Aurora after she was born. This story also shows that perhaps what lies in the shadows is not always evil, and how something that is apparent to the eyes can be misleading. Ultimately, it is a story of the meaning of a true love's kiss.
Cinderella, then there is no reason to force it onto anyone.
Watch it? I recommend it. It is one of those rare movies that holds up on its own, despite being a sort of remake and prequel. I did not care for the new villain, but there is a lesson there too. I hope that this will make them do good iterations, and if not, leave the villain for what it is: a good antagonist.
Until the next item on my list!
