The much-awaited installment to Angelina Jolie’s villainess movie is finally here! Maleficent Mistress of Evil is worth the wait and brings the WOW meter up, up and up! Reprising their roles as (god)mother and surrogate daughter, Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning both give captivating performances as the winged former ruler of the Forest Kingdom and Princess Aurora, present Queen of the Moors respectively.
The movie starts with the handsome Prince Phillip (Harris Dickinson) asking for Aurora’s hand. Her godmother is not happy which is exactly how the prince’s mother feels. The real and unexpected villainess turns out to be bedecked in the most precious jewels, the most pristine pearls, and the most jaw-dropping gowns. Michelle Pfeiffer as Queen Ingris is the epitome of glamorous evil and plays her role magnificently. Pretending to give her blessing to the young couple while plotting against her soon to be daughter-in-law’s kingdom, the Queen runs an underground dungeon weapon factory. She successfully causes a rift between the princess and her winged parent figure.
Meanwhile, Maleficent gets wounded and is saved by another (Chiwetel Ejiofor) like her. She discovers creatures like her in a world hidden from people. The stage is set for war between the magical and the humans. Will Maleficent heed the cry of her clan to defeat their perceived oppressors? What will Prince Phillip do once he uncovers his mother’s evil plan? Will Aurora and Maleficent reunite? These and more questions will be answered as the story unfolds.

This is definitely not your run-of-the-mill sequel. My daughter and I were pleasantly surprised and most captivated. From the intricate sets to the fantastic CGI and the fabulous costumes (Maleficent changes her outfits, too!), there is so much to look forward to. The story is well executed on film and the subplots all come together in one glorious ending.
Do watch it with the entire family! It’s a perfect 10 oniewisneyEvil, Disney Disney my scorecard!
