Disney has movie rights to many fairy tales and folktales. Sleeping beauty is one of them. With a star like Angelina Jolie and a Sleeping Beauty in hand, Disney put Jolie at the center of the story as a villain. The film was released in 2014 and received positive reviews from both the audience and critics.
Angelina Jolie returns to the lead role in the sequel to Maleficent. So are her horns, an example of Disney’s “villains have horns” obsession, but at least Jolie’s horns look cooler. Another Disney cliché, “Bad people wear black and green,” also takes its place in this trailer. Maleficent is dressed in black and it is seen that shots are generally made using a green color palette.
In the trailer of Maleficent, which has a special place among Disney’s villains, wings and Angelina Jolie’s evil female laughter also draw attention.
Joachim Ronning will direct the movie and will star Angelina Jolie. Elle Fanning will return to the series, while Michelle Pfeiffer, Ed Skrein, and Chiwetel Ejiofor will also join the cast of the film. According to Disney, the new movie will be one where we “will continue to explore the complex relationship between the unicorn and the soon-to-be queen.” The movie will be released on October 18.
