One of the classic archtypes in literature and fiction is “good” vs “evil.” No one has mastered this more than Disney. And perhaps no one is more evil in their universe than “Maleficent,” the evil witch from “Sleeping Beauty.”
I must admit, I was somewhat surprised at the success that Disney had with their movie “Maleficent” with Angelina Jolie several years ago. I mean, they don’t usually put the spotlight on the bad guy.
It was successful, tho; and that means only one thing: a sequel.
The film picks up several years after the original and, according to Disney, “continues to explore the complex relationship between the horned fairy and the soon to be Queen”.
