Storyline

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 »

DIsney goes Game of Thrones
16 October 2019 | by iam_ahardrockersSee all my reviews

Loving the departure from the boring first movie, because this one punched more actions (PG of course) better and with more lovely mythical creatures.

Great set designs, costumes, and cinematography albeit bit boring in the middle and finale.
