Disney Character Deaths That Either Had You Cheering Or Sobbing

We’re Not Sure How To Feel About Maleficent’s Death

The death of Maleficent in Sleeping Beauty is a touchy subject now that we know her origin story. On one side of the coin, who wouldn’t be upset if someone took your wings while you were sleeping? That’s just asking for evil retaliation in the form of curses, thorn bushes, and dragons.

Then again, the Prince didn’t do anything to Maleficent, technically speaking. So, he really just offed her in self-defense. We can’t be mad at him for it, but we don’t have to like it either. Moral of the story: don’t cut-off someone’s wings, but if you do please explain yourself before your firstborn is cursed.
