The Story of the Fairy Queen is based on a traditional legend from Ireland. It tells the story of a beautiful young woman who lives in the woods with her three fairy friends. One day, the fairy godmother comes to their lives and teaches them about true love and commitment. They accept her offer and set out on a wonderful journey toward true happiness and fulfillment.
The movie begins in the woods where two men sleep in a tree. One of the men is a hunter, while the other is a fisherman. As night falls, the fairy princess appears in the tree and begins to teach them about true love. She warns them not to go on the first date with any man who approaches them. They accept her warning and set out for a wonderful date. Everything goes well until the fairy princess suddenly falls dead, and a dark magic forces one of the fishermen to shoot her.
Maleficent, who was the older of the fairies, awakens from her slumber to find herself in a hospital bed. Her friends are worried because she does not look like she has a scratch, and they begin to worry when no one else arrives to help. Fears of a vampire being responsible for her demise begin to grow because it is Halloween. When no one else arrives, they quickly discover that Maleficent is perfectly fine and alert. They are told that she had fallen and hit her head while sitting in the woods.
Several years later, an illusionist named Richard Burton comes to town. He is well known for his stage performances, including one in which he plays the character of Coraline, who appears in the movie. While in town, he stumbles upon the body of a young woman who had been killed by a vampire. The two take her to the location where her death occurred, and she becomes identified as Maleficent.
Two years later, the director of the Burton film, Henry Selick, comes across the body of the young woman again. This time, however, she is nowhere to be found. Selick immediately recognizes her as the young lady from the fairytales. Her death doesn’t appear to have taken place in any of the books written by Cinderella. Selick realizes that Maleficent must be the long-lost flower. She and Burton then set about trying to retrace her steps so that they can try to find her, and they ultimately succeed.
Because the fairytale is so important to both young girls and adults, the makers of the Once Upon a Time movies decided to include a sequel to the first film, which took place fifteen years later. The second tale of the princess, “Cinderella” featured an animated fairy, along with several other live-action characters, including the evil prince, the dashing knight, the wise witch, and the beautiful maiden, who become the object of everyone’s affections. The second film, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, introduced another animated fairy. This time, her appearance was intended to mirror that of the deceased Cinderella.
Unlike the original story, the second film did not end happily. The once beautiful fairy has been transformed into a dark and malicious enchantress. It’s up to the young man in search of her with the aid of a kindly but reluctant fairy wisp, Humpep. If these characters aren’t together and they don’t find the love and happiness they’re searching for, the once lovely fairy may end up getting away and leaving everyone in the story behind.
The cast of the film includes award winning actress, Helena Bonham Carter, and kids actors, Edward Kitsis and Emme Hanley. These and many more stars have joined the ranks of Once Upon a Time in Disney World. While this movie doesn’t quite compare to the earlier attractions such as A Cinderella Story, it is a fun film with great graphics and well thought out story lines. As you begin your vacation or are looking for something to do at the Disney resort, this is one of your best chances to find it!
