...I kind of feel like this is the best version of Maleficent, and the one Disney will have to beat in the Angelina Jolie movie (which I'm skeptical of).
I mean, she's cold, she's manipulative, her plan involves actual action (AND THE DESTRUCTION OF THE UNIVERSE) and not waiting 18 years for her grudge to prick her finger on a needle... She's totally replaced by Ansem (or whatever he's called at this point, who can keep track?) in the last hours of the game but... Still...
Then again I haven't seen Sleeping Beauty in forever, so maybe it's better than I remember.
(I've been replaying Kingdom Hearts 1, in case you were wondering.)
