Double bill of Disney fantasy adventures starring Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning. In ‘Maleficent’ (2014) the beautiful Maleficent (Jolie) is a kind-natured woman, but when she is betrayed while protecting her peaceful kingdom from an army invasion her heart begins to turn to stone. Maleficent takes her vengeance by putting a curse on Princess Aurora (Vivienne Jolie-Pitt), the young child of her enemy’s successor. Over time, however, Aurora (Fanning) grows into a young woman and Maleficent comes to understand that the princess may be the only one who can bring peace back to the kingdom. In the sequel ‘Maleficent: Mistress of Evil’ (2019), set five years later, Aurora accepts Prince Philip (Harris Dickinson)’s marriage proposal, but her fairy godmother Maleficent remains opposed to the idea and clashes with Queen Ingrith (Michelle Pfeiffer) over the young couple’s union before fleeing the kingdom. She is rescued by a group of kindred cast aside creatures plotting a resistance against Ingrith’s secret plans to start a war and destroy the faeries of the Moors, and joins their fight, placing her relationship with Aurora in jeopardy.
