Let us tell an old story a new.
And we will see how well you know it.
Once upon a time there were two kingdoms
that were the worst of neighbors.
So vast the discord between them
that is was said only a great hero
or a terrible villain might bring them together.
In one kingdom lived folk like you and me
with a vain and greedy king to rule over them.
They were forever discontent and envious
of the wealth and beauty of their neighbors.
For in the other kingdom, the Moors
lived every manner of strange and wonderful creature.
And they needed neither king nor queen
but trusted in one another.
In a great tree on a great cliff in the Moors
lived one such spirit.
You might take her for a girl.
But she was not just any girl.
She was a fairy.
There you go.
And her name was Maleficent.
早上好 尚特瓦尔先生 你的车不错
Good morning, Mr. Shantuwell. I love your car.
No! No! Don't do it!
Ha, you missed me!
- Good morning. - Good morning.
Love your walk, girls.
What's all the fuss about?
The border guards...
Why'd you get to tell her? I want to tell her!
There are rules, Flittle.
I tell this time, you tell next time.
The border guards...
No, you told last time.
So I should tell this time and Thistletwit next time.
Tell me what?
- Fine! - Ah, thank you.
Maleficent, the border guards...
The border guards have found a human thief
at the Pool of Jewels!
She's always in a hurry with her big wings.
I hope this isn't another war.
I'm not afraid.
Besides, I've never seen a human up close.
No! They mean to kill me.
And besides, they're hideous to look at.
That's extremely rude!
Don't listen to him, Balthazar.
You're classically handsome.
It's not right to steal, but we don't kill people for it.
Come out! Come out this instant!
Are you fully grown?
I believe he's just a boy.
And you're just a girl, I think.
Who are you?
I'm called Stefan. Who are you?
You have to give it back.
Give what back?
If I knew you would throw it away, I would have kept it.
I didn't throw it away.
I delivered it home, as I'm going to do for you.
总有一天 我会住在那里 城♥堡♥里
Someday, you know, I'll live there. In the castle.
Where do you live now?
In a barn.
So, your parents are farmers then?
My parents are dead.
We'll see each other again.
You really shouldn't come back here, you know.
It's not safe.
And if I made that choice? If I came back, would you be here?
Your ring! Iron burns fairies.
I like your wings.
Maleficent thought of how Stefan cast away his ring.
He, who had so little in the world
so that their hands might touch again.
And her heart was moved.
Thus did the young thief who had hoped to steal a jewel
steal something far more precious.
After all these weeks, look who came back.
I thought it worth the risk.
So, what do you do for fun?
Stefan and Maleficent
became the most unlikely of friends.
And for a time, it seemed as if in them at least
the old hatred between man and fairy had been forgotten.
As it will friendship slowly turned into something else.
And on her 16th birthday
Stefan gave Maleficent a gift.
He told her it was true love's kiss.
But it was not to be.
As the years passed
Stefan's ambition called him away from Maleficent
and towards the temptations of the human kingdom.
While Maleficent, the strongest of the fairies
rose to become the protector of the Moors.
Maleficent often wandered alone
and sometimes wondered where Stefan might be.
For she had never understood
the greed and envy of men.
But she was to learn.
For the human king had heard of
a growing power in the Moors.
And he sought to strike it down.
There they are!
The mysterious Moors and no one dares to venture
for fear of the magical creatures that lurk within.
Well, I say: Crush them!
Go no further!
A king does not take orders
from a winged elf.
You are no king to me!
Bring me her head.
and stand with me!
