Earlier today, Walt Disney Studios released the first full trailer for Disney’s Maleficent: Mistress of Evil. The latest trailer features a closer look at the setting of the film including a deeper look at the conflict between the fairies and the humans. Disney’s Maleficent: Mistress of Evil will premiere in theaters on October 18.
“Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” is a fantasy adventure that picks up several years after “Maleficent,” in which audiences learned of the events that hardened the heart of Disney’s most notorious villain and drove her to curse a baby Princess Aurora. The film continues to explore the complex relationship between the horned fairy and the soon to be Queen as they form new alliances and face new adversaries in their struggle to protect the moors and the magical creatures that reside within. The film is directed by Joachim Rønning from a story by Linda Woolverton and a screenplay by Linda Woolverton and Micah Fitzerman-Blue & Noah Harpster, the film is produced by Joe Roth, Angelina Jolie and Duncan Henderson with Matt Smith, Jeff Kirschenbaum and Michael Vieira serving as executive producers.
Well that sure was an fascinating trailer. While I was actually excited for the film already the whole idea that Maleficent may not be the only “evil fairy” is intriguing. The setting of the film is interesting so far and it does seem this film will have less of a good vs evil narrative, but instead more of more complex story. Overall I will most likely be seeing this one in theaters.
