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).

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.
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.
All in all, this film was absolutely worth watching for those who love fairy tales.
I happened to see this movie twice in theatrical release. There was a slight difference in the edits (still don't understand how it happened): In the castle of a sinister king, 1st viewing I clearly remember a clear glass window with an abstract design of 3 crosses. The king & Maleficent crash through this window doing battle. In the 2nd viewing, the window was visible but mostly shuttered. Some of that weird Disney dark "magic." Nevertheless a compelling fairy tale (which traditionally deal with magic) well told.
So, I wish we could have had a better bad guy, but otherwise, the movie is captivating and has a message.

Excellent picture of the struggle with anger and hurt and being remorseful when we act out in anger.Read more
