She smiled, the smile of an innocent girl who has woken on a spring morning. “Ruling the world will not be easy. Not will maintaining order among those of the Sisterhood who have survived into this degenerate age. I will need someone to be eyes and ears, to administer justice, to attend to things when I am otherwise engaged. I will stay at the centre of the web. You will not rule with me, but beneath me, but you will be rule, and rule continents, and not just a tiny kingdom.” She reached out a hand and stroked the queen’s pale skin, which, in the dim light of that room, seemed almost as white as snow.
The queen said nothing.
"Love me," said the girl. "All will love me, and you, who woke me, you must love me most of all."

I suppose this should come with a SPOILER warning. But it’s still beautiful…
If you do not think this is one of the best scenes in cinematic history, you are wrong.
she got the oscar for this performance.
I quote this scene on a daily basis
You want to get kids out of foster care and into good, loving homes? I’ve got a simple solution to your problem.
Did you know LGBT couples are more likely to adopt older, children of color and disable children than straight couples? LGBT couples tend to adopt ‘undesired’ children more (basically kids no one else wants.)
This is so important because I remember being in the system and being so scared that I would never be adopted or loved or whatever and seriously just fucking let them, take the fear out of finding a family
I told you. All the men in my life die.
I’m not a man in your life, okay? You said so yourself. I’m a little shitpot.
This scene is SO important. Maleficent is with someone she trusts, someone she considers a friend. And then the next thing she knows, she wakes up in pain, bleeding, with her wings burned off. A huge part of her has been destroyed.
Rape is so prominent in our culture that it is in a Disney movie. Maybe not explicitly, but it is very clear what this scene represents and it is so sad.
Normally I hate adding comments to posts but considering Angelina Jolie is very involved in women’s rights and works overseas to bring awareness to sexual assault/rape/etc, I’m betting she did this intentionally to highlight it. I think she had a lot of control over this movie.
He didn’t just take her wings either, he DRUGGED her first. It was very clear and terrifying. I also enjoyed this movie because instead of being about a girl who finds love with a boy it was about a woman who finds her way back to herself after going through such a terrible betrayal by loving a little girl and fighting tooth and nail to protect her. “True loves kiss” wasn’t about a prince coming to Aurora’s rescue, it was about THIS woman coming to her rescue. Women looking out for women (or in this case, woman looking out for young innocent girl) needs to happen more in Disney movies.
Just a reminder to the world that there is this glorious feminist thing called the Hawkeye Initiative. Where people draw Hawkeye (and possibly other avengers) in various sexual poses that comic artists generally depict women in.
the greatest thing in the universe.
