"Maleficent" movie quotes tell the title character's untold backstory as the Mistress of All Evil from "Sleeping Beauty." The live action Disney movie was written by Linda Woolverton based on "La Belle au bois dormant" by Charles Perrault and "Little Briar Rose" by The Brothers Grimm and directed by Robert Stromberg. "Maleficent" opened in 3D and 2D on May 30, 2014, in the United States.

In "Maleficent," the events that took place before "Sleeping Beauty" are introduced. Viewers learn that Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) was once a fairy with very powerful wings but evil forces turned her from good to evil and took away those wings. As a result, she was shunned by the townspeople, including King Stefan (Sharlto Copley).

So after Maleficent was not invited to the christening of Princess Aurora (portrayed by Elle Fanning, Vivienne Jolie-Pitt and Eleanor Worthington Cox), she shows up anyways and issues a stern curse. Maleficent says that once day Aurora will prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and fall into a sleep-like death. In the time that follows however, Maleficent spends her time watching over the girl and even getting to know her. Perhaps Maleficent isn't so evil after all, just misunderstood.

"Maleficent" joins the Memorial Day 2014 box office race including other movies such as "Blended," "X-Men: Days of Future Past," "The Immigrant," "The Love Punch, "The Angriest Man in Brooklyn, "Million Dollar Arm," "Godzilla," "Palo Alto," "Chef," "Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return Movie Quotes," "Neighbors," "Belle," "Walk of Shame," and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2."

What An Awkward Situation

Maleficent: "Well, well, what a glittering assemblage, King Stefan. Royalty, nobility, gentry, and, how quaint, even the rabble. I must say, I really felt quite distressed in not receiving an invitation."
King Stefan: "You're not welcome here."
Maleficent: "Oh dear, what an awkward situation."

In the event that triggers many of the events in "Sleeping Beauty," Maleficent crashes the cristening for Princess Aurora to which she was not invited. Despite being told she isn't welcome there, Maleficent isn't thinking about leaving anytime soon.
