Cosplayers, rejoice! Maleficent: Mistress of Evil is here to make your jaw drop.


Maleficent: Mistress of Evil

Age Restriction: 7-9 PG P V

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil 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.

What Critical Hit has to say:

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil tends to rush over its quieter moments to return to the action, and has mistakenly cut back on the enigmatic title character’s screen time. Despite these flaws, though, there is enough heart, magic and charisma to carry the movie and win over the audience. Mistress of Evil is also arguably the most beautiful movie of the year, dazzling with its intricate character design, costuming and makeup. 8/10
