Maleficent: Mistress of Evil is the sequel to the original Disney 2014 film Maleficent.
Angelina Jolie returns to portray the role of the dark fairy Maleficent again. Although in the classic cartoon 1959 “Sleeping Beauty” she was the real embodiment of evil, this is the second film in which viewers follow the development of a famous plot through the eyes of Maleficent herself.
After being devoted to people decades ago, the fairy became tough-hearted. Maleficent proclaims herself Queen of the Swamps and curses Princess Aurora.
However, for the sequel, everything has changed – now the fairy is the mentor of the princess who rules the entire kingdom.
This is a new film and a new challenge. In the sequel to “Maleficent”, Aurora learns how cruel a mother-in-law can be, and the fairy meets her fellow tribesmen.
