What is the meaning of the movie Maleficent: Mistress of Evil

The main point of the film is that evil is able to bring good, and the one who seems good can hide black malice in his heart. The idea of ​​the creators is to show the good old battle between good and evil, only from a very unexpected side. It is the queen who wants war, although she managed to convince everyone of the opposite for a long time.


Well lit in the film and a real guile. The Queen excelled in this art of all.

For so many years, keeping everyone in fear with terrible stories about the terrible people living in the swamps, sowing confidence that Maleficent committed brutal murders is a real talent. No one could have thought that this was the work of the queen.

Back to the roots

The creators skillfully introduced a story about a people related to Maleficent into the film.

They wanted to show how important it is to find a family, to find out that there are people like you in the world. Maleficent found loved ones, and with them new forces.

True love

The creators did not ignore the true love. This feeling can break any spell. The heroes of the film love each other, and therefore they all will live happily ever after.


The creators point to this important quality. The fairy who sacrificed herself to save her own kind did not disappear for good, she turned into a flower. The viewer is shown that the one who gives his life for the sake of others will definitely receive a reward.

Eternal battle

The battle between good and evil is the main idea of ​​the film. When the story ends, this battle doesn’t end. Evil hides only for a while, in order to gain strength and again rush into battle. It will successfully disguise itself, and will hatch new cruel plans for a long time. Evil cannot be destroyed forever, if only because it is necessary for the balance in this world. That is why the evil in the face of the prince’s mother is not destroyed, but only temporarily neutralized.

Good conquers evil

And as expected in a real fairy tale, good won. Evil is punished, although not destroyed, but defeated. The evil queen’s punishment is not as cruel as she is. The queen was overtaken by a punishment, but a punishment characteristic of goodness, and even with humor. True goodness could not punish otherwise.

Consent and reconciliation

There is another important thought that runs throughout the film. In a real, kind society, everyone is welcome, whether it be an elf, a fairy, a creepy-looking tree, or a person of another race.

All of them unite in the end and live in peace and harmony.

Reconciliation and kindness towards those who are not like you is an important idea of ​​the film.


As conceived by the filmmakers, even nature shows who is good and who is bad.

Gorgeous flowers and beautiful trees grow in the land of marshy swamps. There is always a blue clear sky and clean, clear water.

This speaks of the purity of the thoughts of the magical people. And in the castle of the evil queen there is not a single flower, and the sky above the castle is always gloomy.

Meaning of the ending of Maleficent: Mistress of Evil

The battle is over, everyone is happy, except for the queen, who has been turned into a goat. The king woke up from his eternal sleep. The wedding of Aurora and Phillip took place and the kingdoms united.

Good has conquered evil. And everyone lived happily ever after, as it should be in a fairy tale.
