Evil Reborn

If you remember your childhood as screaming along to the likes of Hakuna Matata and Under The Sea while your parents fought in the other room, we sure can relate. If Disney was just as integral a part of your life as it was ours, it can easily be said that live-action remakes of old Disney movies are like a Rolls Royce – extremely desired, but hardly acquired. Then comes the topic of Disney princesses; all you girls wanted to be one, there’s no shame in admitting it. If you’re like us, Aurora was the most iconic of them all. Her golden locks and tailored blush dress made you either want to be her or have a crush on her. Oh, how much we hated Maleficent for cursing her. But, in the first Maleficent movie, we got to see another side of the apparently cruel and evil fairy. Finally, days of idolising Aurora were long gone, and we began loving Maleficent. The fact that Angeline Jolie played the character also added a few brownie points. If you couldn’t already tell, a sequel is coming, titled Maleficent: Mistress of Evil! The trailer, which was released in July, showed Prince Philip asking Aurora to marry him, to which she agrees. Although Maleficent is completely against it at first, she reluctantly agrees to meet the family, whereupon she’s insulted by Phillip’s mother, Queen Ingris, played by Michelle Pfeiffer (hats off to the casting directors). This is followed by Maleficent attacking them, which turns into an epic rivalry. It is also seen that other beings like Maleficent exist. We’re all thinking, “But, we thought Maleficent was good. What on earth happened?” Fans are coming up with theories which imply that Ingris might be the true villain here; posing to be a good mother, and making Maleficent look bad, to fulfil her ulterior motives. While this does seem highly likely, we’ll only be sure when we watch the movie on the 18th of October.
