This film, directed by Joachim Ronning, is packed with action sequences and beautiful fantasy settings. “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” takes viewers back to the land of the Moors, now with its new queen, Aurora. Elle Fanning‘s Princess Aurora is delightful and strong in this film. Her costuming was absolutely stunning. Throughout the film, she is always presented in either pink or blue as a nod to the original “Sleeping Beauty“. They made her look whimsical, yet strong. She definitely holds her own being side by side with both Angelina Jolie and Michelle Pfeiffer.

The interaction’s between the two characters make for some iconic movie moments, especially when Maleficent gets invited to the castle for dinner. Maleficent is a role that Jolie was born to play.
