For those who have watched the classic Disney movie, Sleeping Beauty, you’ll know it’s about Princess Aurora and the quest to wake her from slumber thanks to a spinning wheel and the villain, Maleficent.
Disney’s hit MALEFICENT, tells the backstory of the villain, why she became so angry and more about the story of the famous curse which needed true loves kiss.
Explore the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain in this wickedly fun twist on the classic “Sleeping Beauty.” In an unforgiving mood after a neighboring kingdom threatens her forest, Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) places an irrevocable curse on the king’s newborn daughter, the Princess Aurora. But as the child grows, Maleficent finds herself becoming fond of the girl. And as the conflict between the two realms intensifies, Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land. Journey beyond the fairy tale in this soaring adventure that is “visually arresting, brilliantly designed” (Andrew Barker, Variety).
Quite honestly, I originally didn’t want to see MALEFICENT, only because I’ve never cared for Angelina Jolie movies. Yet, she IS perfect for the role. You will find a whole new empathy for the character and find yourself cheering, for once, the villain. It truly is a great movie!
