Maleficent AU (also known as Sleeping Beauty AU) is an alternate universe usually within the Rise of the Brave Tangled Dragons universe, but it is also with Rise of the Brave Tangled Frozen Dragons universe. In the AU, Rapunzel, Merida, Hiccup, and Jack are most of the main characters within the tale of Sleeping Beauty, most notably the original Disney animated film and the live-action remake in 2014. This AU is also an offshoot of Fairy Tale AU.

About The AU

Spawned from fan art, this is based on (or even occurs within the same world) the story of Sleeping Beauty, which was also a popular story for centuries. In this AU, the characters live within the same world as the events of Sleeping Beauty and the looming influence of its villain Maleficent. The concept is not that far, as both royalty and fairies are very prominent in the fandom.

As the name implies, the AU's direct influence comes from the original Disney adaptation of the traditional fairy tale, as well as the live-action remake, though this is not required.

It is also seen in the Tangled: The Series episode "Keeper of the Spire", as one of the many items in the Spire's Vault wall.

Extra Characters

Queen Elsa

Because of the many similarities between the two characters (such as their mistaken identities as monsters, dangerous yet beautiful powers, and their journeys to learn to open up and love again), Elsa most commonly plays the part of Maleficent. Some fans use Elsa's original antagonist self, from one of the earlier layouts of Frozen, for the role; due to her Evil Elsa self and design being used in dark crossovers. While the Light Fury serves as Elsa's dragon self, just as Toothless has served as Hiccup's dragon self in a few dragon transformation related AUs (along with referencing the times when fans have the unnamed Light fury as Elsa's dragon for the Hiccelsa pairing and the Frozen Dragon crossover). She has also been cast as Aurora/Sleeping Beauty on some rare occasions.

Princess Anna

Whenever Elsa is portrayed as Maleficent and Kristoff as Phillip, Anna is seen as Sleeping Beauty/Aurora, mainly because they are both what helped Maleficent and Elsa open up to love again. She has also been cast as a female version of Prince Phillip for the Elsanna pairing.

While in the game version of Rise of the Guardians, Pitch's Nightmares take the form of other kinds of animals, so Onyx could take one of those forms for his role as Diaval.

Mother Gothel

When Rapunzel is placed as Sleeping Beauty/Aurora, Gothel is portrayed as Maleficent.

Vanellope von Schweetz

Since Rapunzel is sometimes seen as Sleeping Beauty, and the live-action Maleficent films has the titled character forming a strong bond with the princess. There have also been fans who have portrayed Cassandra as a female Phillip, for fun and the fact that she has her own horse.

Prince Hans (Red Shoes)

In the end credits of Red Shoes and the Seven Dwarfs, the smell of Hans' cooking awakens the Sleeping Beauty of Fairy Tale Isle from her slumber and after she was done eating the meal he was preparing for himself, the two are shown to a formed a bond. This could be due to the saying of woman loving men that can cook and that food has away to win people's hearts through their stoics.
