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).

I bought the Blu-Ray/DVD 2-disc set first, then saw the various complaints about it being an edited version from what was shown in theaters. I bought this "Theatrical" digital copy hoping to get the unedited version, but they are identical. If there is an unedited version for sale, I haven't found it. Most people will never miss what was edited out (I'm just a compulsive completist), so as far as watching the movie is concerned, this version works just as well as the Blu-Ray...which is to say, just great.
Aurora is now in the film for much longer, Stefan is an evil king, and the three good fairies are very different than the previous in terms of their actions. Some of the moments from the original are in there, but rushed and short. The main focus is on Maleficent, and her story arc. However, for fans of the original, this can also open up more to things we didn't know before about Maleficent.
I highly recommend this to any Disney fan, however I also advise that they brace for the changes in the story.
All in all, this film was absolutely worth watching for those who love fairy tales.
The film quality in this HD edition is outstanding! The colors pop, the world of fairies is so lovely, so perfectly rendered, it makes my heart ache for a visit to this enchanting place. CGI is so realistic, I could just reach through the screen and pop right in! (don't I wish!)
This is a wonderful twist on a classic tale of love and revenge. We all thought that we knew who Maleficent was, well, think again! She's dark, she's angry, but she's not the evil creature we all thought she was. She's a complex character for certain, but she (according to this tale) certainly had reason to be extremely angry with Aurora's father to the point that she sought such a strong need for revenge, a factor that is NEVER explained in the original. She's just evil in Sleeping Beauty...anger without a cause, evil without reason. Well, now you learn the reason and it will make you change your sympathies for certain!
Sit back and enjoy the thought provoking, grand cinematic achievement that is Maleficent!
