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

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 ScreenX release presented the film in ultra-widescreen meaning there was more picture information visible in the left and right of the frame than in normal theaters and on home video. See more »

Everything is amazing except the script
24 October 2019 | by shaym_levySee all my reviews

The writing is not good enough. The visual is amazing and so is the acting, but the script is really bad.
