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 Nick Riganas

Crazy Credits

On the international trailers, against a daytime sky, we see Maleficent's castle in the 2011 Disney logo. The camera zooms in and later tilts 90° counter-clockwise. The US, Canadian and YouTube versions of the trailer still using the normal logo. Meanwhile on the actual film, As the 2011 Disney logo finishes, the camera moves in an upper right direction, panning away from the logo. See more »

Alternate Versions

The film's IMAX release presented the film open-matte, at an aspect ratio of 1.90:1, meaning there was more picture information visible in the top and bottom of the frame than in normal theaters and on home video. See more »

In Moors, Prince Philip (Harris Dickinson) proposes Aurora (Elle Fanning) to get married with him. However his mother Queen Ingrith (Michelle Pfeiffer) invites Aurora and her grandmother Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) to have dinner with her and King John (Robert Lindsay) in her castle in Ulstead. 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. She is rescued by Conall (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and learns there is a species in Moor just like her. Meanwhile Queen Ingrith uses Maleficent's curse to declare war to Moors.

"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.

Title (Brazil): "Malévola: Dona do Mal" ("Maleficent: Owner of the Evil")
