Storyline

Five peaceful years have passed since the demise of the duplicitous monarch, King Stefan, in Maleficent (2014), and, now, an unforeseen but joyous event is about to unite the mortal Kingdom of Ulstead and the fairy-realm of the enchanted Moors. However, once more, odious treason stands in the way of true young love, as malicious envy, unbounded ambition and ignoble thoughts creep in the hearts of men. Now, two neighboring worlds find themselves divided by fear and prejudice, and, sadly, the impending union paves the way for an all-out confrontation. Suddenly, the magnificent winged sprite, Maleficent, and the lovely Princess Aurora are caught in the middle. Does love always end well? Written by Nick Riganas

Goofs

Diaval appears uncomfortable with being served poultry, presumably due to him actually being a raven. However, ravens do sometimes eat other birds, so he shouldn't have an issue with it. See more »

Crazy Credits

On the international trailers, against a daytime sky, we see Maleficent's castle in the 2011 Disney logo. The camera zooms in and later tilts 90° counter-clockwise. The US, Canadian and YouTube versions of the trailer still using the normal logo. Meanwhile on the actual film, As the 2011 Disney logo finishes, the camera moves in an upper right direction, panning away from the logo. See more »

Alternate Versions

The film's IMAX release presented the film open-matte, at an aspect ratio of 1.90:1, meaning there was more picture information visible in the top and bottom of the frame than in normal theaters and on home video. See more »

Better than expected
10 November 2019 | by PrawanwanSee all my reviews

The cinematography was spot on as well as sounds and visual effects. There are also many iconic scenes which are straight out of the original classic animated movie which greatly impressed me. Overall, I enjoyed watching it. It's a fun-to-watch movie. The narrative of the film can easily appeal to the young audience. However, it is best to watch the 2014 Maleficent film before watching this movie so that you will understand its story better.
