I nearly had a coronary when I learned Disney was making my favorite villan ‘real’. Maleficent was insanely spooky and beautifully terrifying to me as a child. Never-the-less Sleeping Beauty has been my absolute favorite of the animated Disney movies partly because of her. Jake watched the trailer a couple dozen times for me. So when we went to see it in the theater I was beyond stoked!
In an unforgiving mood after a neighboring kingdom threatens her forest, Maleficent 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.
