shit I noticed on my second viewing of Maleficent:
at the end, Maleficent at some point had majicked Diaval a new shiney suit with matching black feathers
yeah you heard me
also I’d just like to thank the costume designer that decided they wanted Diaval to look like a pirate half the time
one of his shirts was open almost to his belly button
you yes you, I like you, you can stay
HE WAS WEARING A FAKE NOSE I DIDN’T NOTICE THAT THE FIRST TIME BUT YEAH HE WAS WEARING A PROSTHETIC TO MAKE HIS NOSE MORE BIRD-LIKE
also Diaval’s first transformation from bird to man was one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen in a movie holy shit
Maleficent’s curse: The princess shall indeed grow in grace and beauty, beloved by all who know her
bitch you just fucked yoself
you literally just cursed yourself
you are so smart
also there were two chairs in King Stefan’s I’m-going-to-creepily-stare-at-a-pair-of-wings-that-I-garroted-off room. Why were there two chairs, who the fuck would have sat with him in that room. Queen ‘I appear once and then mysteriously die at a later point during the movie and King Dickhat doesn’t care’?
DID ANYONE ELSE SPEND AN EMBARRASSING AMOUNT OF TIME WONDERING WHAT BURNING ALL THE SPINNING WHEELS DID TO THE CLOTH ECONOMY
THAT PROBABLY DROVE THE PRICE OF ANYTHING REMOTELY TO DO WITH CLOTHING WAY THE HELL UP NICE JOB STEFAN
Okay so are you trying to tell me that all the sudden King Stefan had THOUSANDS OF POUNDS OF IRON
AS IF THE PREVIOUS KINGS HADN’T MINED ALL THAT WAS AVAILABLE AND TRADED AND BOUGHT
but nope he built a fucking thorn maze of iron through most of his castle
Diaval and Maleficent literally stood shoulder to shoulder on a cliff at the very end and then literally flew off into the sunset
I’m sorry I can’t hear you over the sound of my feather bros
I would have been completely alright with them changing up the ending and having Diaval try True Love’s Kiss on Aurora. You can tell just by the look on his face when Maleficent said that there was no such thing as true love, how shocked/hurt he seemed, I think he believes in it.
Plus if they were going to have the kiss be romantic love instead of the maternal true love like what we got, Diaval would have made more sense than Phillip. Phillip’s kiss didn’t work because he and Aurora weren’t actually in love, they hadn’t had time to fall in love! That’s why in the movie it was Maleficent’s kiss because she had formed such a strong loving bond with Aurora over the years. Diaval had also spent so many years with Aurora (16 to be exact), and they actually had time to form a relationship. It could have worked.
Sorry Prince Phillip, but I have to say I prefer my Raven Prince…ooh dear, I believe I just gave myself fic ideas.
