The Black Witch and the Prince

A darker, more in-depth adaptation of the fairytale, Sleeping Beauty. This gorgeous, rich, screenplay would also make an enticing Disney Series.

When Royal Fairy, Maleficent, is wrongly accused of being a Black Witch and her child stolen from her, she wreaks her revenge.
