Maleficent is one of those movies that falls into my all time favorites. There is just something about it that makes me want to watch it again and again – which trust me is quite a feat. I rarely, if ever, want to watch a movie more than once because once I know the plot and how it ends, I’m over it. For some reason I can keep watching Maleficent and never get tired of it!
Not only do I love this movie, but my kids love it too. It has also become one of my son’s favorite movies. He is more into live action films now versus cartoons, so this was an excellent family movie for us.
MALEFICENT is a “wickedly fun twist on the Disney classic ‘Sleeping Beauty.’” “Maleficent” explores the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the classic “Sleeping Beauty” and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turn her pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn infant, Aurora. As the child grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy. Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever.
