I wonder how Aurora can still be young when supposedly the incident with Maleficent and the Sleeping curse was in the past. That doesn’t make sense to me unless Aurora is just a recurring character in fairytale land which i guess is possible but sort of seems unlikely
In the thing you love most, it seems Malificent was the same age as young Regina when Sleeping Beauty beat her. What if Sleeping beauty was a child similar to Young Snow? The conversation between Regina and Malificent starts off about Snow and goes:
M: Weren’t you about the same age when you were to be married before she ruined it all? Yes you were.
R: Yes, it was about the same age you were when that sleeping beauty got the best of you, my dear Malificent.
Seeing how Malificent and Regina appear to be around the same age, it seems they were both beaten by children.
