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.
Five peaceful years have passed since the demise of the duplicitous monarch, King Stefan, in Maleficent (2014), and, now, an unforeseen but joyous event is about to unite the mortal Kingdom of Ulstead and the fairy-realm of the enchanted Moors. However, once more, odious treason stands in the way of true young love, as malicious envy, unbounded ambition and ignoble thoughts creep in the hearts of men. Now, two neighboring worlds find themselves divided by fear and prejudice, and, sadly, the impending union paves the way for an all-out confrontation. Suddenly, the magnificent winged sprite, Maleficent, and the lovely Princess Aurora are caught in the middle. Does love always end well?Written by

Aurora and Maleficent go with the crow Diaval (Sam Riley) is the human form. During the dinner, Ingrith provokes Maleficent and King John is cursed and sleeps. Aurora blames Maleficent and she flies back to Moors. She is hit by an iron bullet and falls into the river.

"Maleficent: Mistress of Evil" is a film by Disney not bad as indicated in some reviews. The story is entertaining for fans of fantasy and adventure genres and supported by great special effects. If the viewer watches with lower expectations, "Maleficent: Mistress of Evil" may be a good option. My vote is six.
