Review: Maleficent: Mistress of evil
By Aubrey Cordova
The sequel presents the complex relationship between the fairy folk and the humans. Aurora, a princess who is stuck between both worlds wishes to combine the two through marriage with Prince Phillip.
Marriage seems ideal, considering the fairy folk and the humans have always been rivals, but Prince Phillip’s mother, the queen, has a different plan for the two to marry. Going behind the prince’s back, the Queen plans a war in hopes to annihilate all fairies.
With a war at hand, Maleficent stumbles upon a group of fairy folk who are dark like her; dark fae. Her new friends are tired of hiding from the humans and are determined to win the hate war. In a mix of self discovery and a horrible war, Maleficent must save those she loves.
The 2019 fantasy/action movie, starring Angelina Jolie (Maleficent) and Ella Fanning ( Princess Aurora), is one of the darker Disney movies, it is very action packed. Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, is very thrilling with many unexpected plot twists.
