You all thought you knew the story. Any evil spell is broken with true love's kiss and they lived happily ever after. Well, not quite. In 2014, Disney turned the tables once again on one of the most well-loved classics and brought us Maleficent. The true intent behind the evil fairy's actions were never revealed and it was always something to wonder about if we weren't just too busy sighing contentedly at Prince Charming, sweeping Princess Aurora off her feet from a hundred years of slumber. Ah, yes.

The Maleficent film has to be one of the biggest plot twists in Disney movies in 2014. And they certainly made no mistake of casting Angelina Jolie for the challenging role. It gave us, the audience a new perspective on not just Sleeping Beauty but other classic fairy tales as well. Now, if we could just get a back story from Snow White's evil bitch queen, all will be good.
