Angelina Jolie On That Shocking Maleficent Scene! Do You Think Disney Made A Metaphor For Rape? Because She Does!

SPOILERS AHEAD!

Anyone else feel like that scene in Maleficent where Angelina Jolie's character gets drugged and has her wings cut off by Aurora's father Stefan seemed to be a metaphor for rape??

Well, our feelings are mutual with Miz Jolie's, because at yesterday's London-hosted Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict, UN Special Envoy the actress admitted the Disney scene was supposed to give the viewer the sense that she was being raped, revealing:

"We were very conscious, the writer [Linda Woolverton] and I, that it was a metaphor for rape. This would be the thing that would make her lose sight. At a certain point, the question of the story is what could possibly bring her back?"

She later explained to BBC Radio:

"The core of [the film] is abuse, and how the abused have a choice of abusing others or overcoming and remaining loving, open people. The question was asked, 'What could make a woman become so dark? To lose all sense of her maternity, her womanhood, and her softness?'"

Bet you didn't think you were signing up for something THIS heavy when Mickey Mouse was involved, now did you?!!

    Her wings symbolize her innocence and when it's taken from her, she becomes withdrawn, depressed, and aggressive

    Re: Caryn9 – what are you talking about? He clearly stated that it was a metaphor! If you're referring to the headline, it's meant to be provocative and draw in your attention. It has been publicly stated that this was a metaphor for rape, so, since the article is about this 'metaphorical rape', the title was accurate

    So, I guess that means that you didn't know the real way Sleeping Beauty was woken up…

    You are making a hugh mess out of a scene that can be given multiple interpretations. Please! Respect for the movie. Kids are not affected by it. All is that she cries because a man cut off her wings from her body

    In the original sleeping beauty fairy tale the prince doesn't wake her with a kiss. He rapes her & leaves. Fairy tales are dark, they address the dark corners of the human psyche. Disney has been sanitizing them for generations. Irony is now that they are getting real about the dark they are getting closer to the originals.
