It has been 5 years since Princess Aurora was woken from her sleep spell by Prince Phillip and she left to live with her godmother Maleficent in the Moors.

Humans from the nearby kingdom across the river have been invading the Moors poaching fairies and glowing plants bringing them back to the castle.
