A young fairy living in the magical Moors comes across Stefan, a young boy from the human world. They develop a friendship until Stefan cuts off her wings in order to become king. The once benevolent fairy becomes vengeful and places a curse upon Stefan’s baby daughter, Aurora. After watching over the child from afar for a number of years, Maleficent’s heart begins to warm towards the child but it may be too late to avoid the curse from taking place on her sixteenth birthday. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching “Maleficent”.

∙ Knotgrass and Flittle are playing checkers while Thistletwit watches on. Flittle accuses Knotgrass of cheating and clears the board. When Knotgrass first says “stop doing that” regarding the raindrops that are starting to come down on her, it cuts to a front view of Flittle when she says “I’m not doing anything”. In the front view, there is one checker on the board in front of her. The scene cuts to a side view of the fairies and the checker is gone, the board is empty. A few moments later, Flittle places a checker back on the board and the rain begins to pour on Knotgrass. In the close-up of Knotgrass there is still just the single checker on the board. It cuts to an overhead view and there are at least three checkers on the board.

∙ When Stefan is arguing that nothing is indestructible, he walks over to the table and tosses the silver cups and the plate of fruit off. An apple is seen falling onto the table near the silverware. The scene cuts to an overhead view and the apple is nowhere to be seen.

∙ When Aurora says “I’m sorry to have to tell you this”, the close-up of Knotgrass, Flittle and Thistletwit shows there is flour on the upper part of Thistletwit’s dress and just a small amount on the bottom part, on her left. It cuts to Aurora when she says “I’ll be sixteen tomorrow” and then back to the fairies. The bottom half of Thistletwit’s dress is now almost covered in flour. It’s back to the original amount when the fairies mention her father.
