Marginalized
Comic relief
I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream
I know you, the gleam in your eyes is so familiar a gleam
Yet I know it's true that visions are seldom all they seem
But if I know you, I know what you'll do
You'll love me at once, the way you did once upon a dream

But if I know you, I know what you do
You love me at once
The way you did once upon a dream

I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream
I know you, the gleam in your eyes is so familiar a gleam
And I know it's true that visions are seldom all they seem
But if I know you, I know what you'll do
You'll love me at once, the way you did once upon a dream
Once Upon a Dream
Gender roles still exists in the modern version of Sleeping Beauty

[Onwards, Sleeping Beauty's Mother's Story!? Coming Soon In 2039?!?!]
Sources
Maleficent demonstrates the concept of "I don't need a man to save me"
Artificial feminism
In the end, Maleficent's actions were driven by her hatred of King Stefan and she developed a mother-daughter like bond with Aurora because of her maternal instincts

Degrading men
King Stefan was driven by his desire for power and betrayed Maleficent as a result. This stereotypes men as evil beings that would do anything to gain power
For example, Aurora didn't end up needing the Prince's love at all to save her
Gifts given by the fairies

Beauty:
She has hair of sunshine gold and lips that shame the red rose

Song:
She has a beautiful singing voice

Beauty is a priority over intelligence and integrity
Prince Phillip: I'm awfully sorry. I didn't mean to frighten you.

Princess Aurora: Oh, it wasn't that. Is just that you're a... a...

Prince Phillip: A stranger?

Princess Aurora: Mm-hm.

Prince Phillip: But don't you remember? We've met before.

Princess Aurora: We... we have?

Prince Phillip: But of course! You said so yourself. Once upon a dream.
