The Queen is extremely beautiful, but very vain. She seduced and married a widowed king, who had a daughter called Snow White with his first wife. After the king died, the Queen sent Snow White to work in her castle and forced her stepdaughter to abandon her title as Princess, similar to the situation of Cinderella. Maleficent is the wicked dark fairy and main antagonist in Walt Disney's 1959 adaptation of Sleeping Beauty. She was animated by Marc Davis, and voiced by Eleanor Audley (who also voiced Lady Tremaine, the stepmother of Cinderella).

Back in the Emerald City the Wizard still will not grant the groups wishes and Toto exposes the Wizard to be ... ... middle of paper ... ...t Bowl, and this is why they couldn’t give Dorothy all of the attention that she wanted. The scarecrow who needed a brain can also reflect the farmers during the 1930’s. Without a brain the scarecrow was helpless, and many of these farmers were too.
While awaiting the return of the wife, the Witch dragged Jack who was sacrificed to the giantess. This means that Cinderella was lucky to escape the haunting sacrifice to the giantess. Cinderella reflects characters are emotional and she stayed with the baker’s child and confronted the prince who has no time for her.

One day, all the woman are invited to a party at the royal palace, the purpose of which is to find a wife for the Prince. But the stepmother tells Cinderella that she cannot go unless she finishes all her chores-an impossible task in the short amount of time before the ball. The stepmother does not want her at the ball because Cinderella is much more beautiful than the woman's own daughters.

Pagan magic, spell casting, and self-mutilation are much more violent and aggressive than the fairy dust and glitter found in Cinderella.

Also because it is German, there is no “happily ever after.” It was considered just for the stepsisters’ heels and toes to be cut off and their eyes to be plucked out by birds. Both stories deal with a young girl who, with the help of a little magic, is able to find her prince and live happily ever after.
