My daughter, Lydia received a copy for review. I have to say that I was amazed when we watched it.
What is it about? : Explore the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain in this wickedly fun twist on the classic “Sleeping Beauty.” In an unforgiving mood after a neighboring kingdom threatens her forest, Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) places an irrevocable curse on the king’s newborn daughter, the Princess Aurora. But as the child grows, Maleficent finds herself becoming fond of the girl. And as the conflict between the two realms intensifies, Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land. Journey beyond the fairy tale in this soaring adventure that is “visually arresting, brilliantly designed” (Andrew Barker, Variety).
If you haven't seen it- DO NOT READ FURTHER: My favorite part of the movie was when Maleficent regretted placing her curse. She was falling in love with Aurora like she was her own. It was truly an awesome story. Seeing this side of the story has made me rethink that they should make every Disney movie into a live movie like this! =) We loved the effects and we loved that it was 100% family friendly! The ending made us literally "awe". Check out the bonus features!
