Maleficent - Mistress of Evil

We were invited to preview the movie Maleficent - Mistress of Evil. It was a very enjoyable evening at the theater. My teen daughters loved it. My husband thought it was OK, and I am somewhere between the two opinions. The negative - there were a few parts that seemed slow. I also would have enjoyed it more had I remembered the original movie better. The positive - the animation was magnificent! The woodland creatures were lovable. The prince was a strong role that doesn't always come through in Disney movies. 

While small children might be interested in seeing Maleficent - Mistress of Evil, there are some dark scenes. The green smoke might be scary. There are characters and fae that die. There is a battle scene. With all that said, the acting is strong, the scenery beautiful, and the storyline was cohesive. It really does present itself and plays out at a huge cinematic event. Disney fans will not be disappointed. 

See the original trailer:


In Disney’s “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil,” a sequel to the 2014 global box office hit, Maleficent and her goddaughter Aurora begin to question the complex family ties that bind them as they are pulled in different directions by impending nuptials, unexpected allies, and dark new forces at play. The years have been kind to Maleficent and Aurora. Their relationship, born of heartbreak, revenge and ultimately love, has flourished. Yet the hatred between man and the fairies still exists. Aurora’s impending marriage to Prince Phillip is cause for celebration in the kingdom of Ulstead and the neighboring Moors, as the wedding serves to unite the two worlds. When an unexpected encounter introduces a powerful new alliance, Maleficent and Aurora are pulled apart to opposing sides in a Great War, testing their loyalties and causing them to question whether they can truly be family. “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” stars Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Sam Riley, Harris Dickinson, Ed Skrein, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple, Lesley Manville, and Michelle Pfeiffer as Queen Ingrith, and is directed by Joachim Rønning.
