Hi everybody^____^ Have you ever wondered what Mal looked like when she was a child? I’m asking you this because today’s edit is gonna be all about Mal’s childhood Disney has always been super vague about the villain kids’ childhoods but there are a lot of new clues in the book Escape From the Isle of the Lost and now that Mal and Ben are getting married, I think we might get to know more because Mal will of course want her family to be there at the wedding both Maleficent as a lizard and Hades from the Isle of the Lost I think that is why Hades is being shackled and transported to Auradon and he even mentions it during tea with Fairy Godmother Before diving into the books, I’ve got a little disclaimer When the author Melissa de la Cruz wrote the first book, she had no idea Disney would make Hades Mal’s father later on so in the first book Mal’s father is described as a human, however this is corrected in the newest book Here Hades is very strongly hinted to be Mal’s father several times and Mal has a lot of flashbacks remembering her childhood This is the most important one: Mal was standing in front of the classroom at Dragon Hall She was in third grade at the time and had just won the school award The Wicked Prize Mal always won this prize year after year and Maleficent was so proud of it The little Mal in the flashback went home to show her parents the prize, and she remembers her father’s voice saying: That’s our bad little girl This is so important because this means that Mal lived with both of her parents, Maleficent and Hades, most of her childhood While Maleficent was busy ruling over the island, Hades spent his time trying to escape the Isle of the Lost In the end Hades gave up and he decided to make The Underground his home I think this is the point where he abandoned his family, because when Mal turned 16 he was definitely not in the picture anymore A lot of people think that the raven Diablo is Mal’s father but that can’t be possible because according to the books throughout all of the 20 years of imprisonment, Diablo was petrified It was only shortly after Mal’s sixteenth birthday that he came back to life Mal as a child with her parents Maleficent and Hades Is this like how you imagined it, or do you have other theories about Mal’s childhood? Oh and do you want me to edit Jay, Carlos and Evie as children too? Please let me know in the comments below! I hope you have an amazing wicked day See you in the next video!
