Evil Doesn’t Have to be Green: Maleficent: Mistress of Evil #MaleficentMistressofEvil

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil

The great and powerful Maleficent has survived the test of time from her first appearance in the 1959 Disney’s Sleeping Beauty, which is based on the fairy tale by Charles Perrault with the same name, to her reenvisioned form of the more sympathetic character in the 2014 live-action film Maleficent. Maleficent continues to enchant viewers in the brand new movie Maleficent: Mistress of Evil. Disney villains don’t get enough credit and love that they deserve sometimes. 

The greatest power a well-written villain can have is the power of persuasion over the audience. Maleficent has always been powerful and strong-willed, whether we agree with her actions or not. She’s confident in her presence and though she may be evil, it has never looked so good on her.  Maleficent makes the viewers feel her pain, and sympathize with her reasoning. With the continuation of Disney’s fiercest villain, she  and her goddaughter Aurora are put to the test as Aurora’s wedding approaches. Strong ties will be broken as new allies are formed. 

As strong as their love is, will it prevail to reveal another happy ending for our characters? I know finishing this movie with any Disney fan by yourself will guarantee one. Pick up Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, and join the story as another motion picture captures your attention and heart.

    Gosh, what is with her cheeks? It’s hard to look at her. Is that natural or did they do that to her for the film? She needs to gain some weight and join what the rest of us look like.

    My daughter is so excited to see this and I admit, I am too. I love the new trend in de-evilizing the villains and making them instead just flawed beings. My daughter doesn’t see tings in black and white, but rather the more realistic shades of grey.

    Angelina Jolie is so great in this role. I can’t imagine any other actress in the role. They nailed the casting in the Maleficent movies.
