The first film Maleficent (2014) successfully earned $ 700 million from audience revenue worldwide. No doubt a sequel will certainly be present. Now, the film based on the script by Linda Woolverton, Noah Hapster and Micah Fitzerman-Blue titled Disney’s Maleficent: Mistress of Evil has started airing in Indonesia since October 16, 2019.
Directed by Joachim Rning and produced by Joe Roth, Duncan Henderson, and the main character, Angelina Jolie, Disney’s Maleficent: Mistress of Evil is also supported by a number of other big names as actors and actresses such as Elle Fanning, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Sam Riley, Sam Riley, Harris Dickinson, Ed Skrein, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple, Lesley Manville, and Michelle Pfeiffer.
Love VS Family
Slightly different from the previous film, Disney’s Maleficent: Mistress of Evil was designed as a fairy tale action film that is colorful, energetic and touching at the same time. Taking place five years after his first film, Aurora (Elle Fanning) is now ordained as the Queen of the Moors, a wilderness full of magic where she and Maleficent (Angelina Jolie), the adoptive mother lives.
The Moors are described as a colorful, magical forest filled with a series of typical fairytale dwellers, ranging from fairies, animate trees, to a unique hedgehog named Pinto (Emma Maclennan). Aurora also just got engaged to Prince Philip (Harris Dickinson), from Job Ulstead, whose kiss failed to wake the princess in the previous film.
Before the wedding was held, the king and queen Ulstead invited Maleficent and Aurora to attend a special dinner which, unfortunately ended tragically. Now Aurora is torn between her loyalty to Maleficent or her new family, the kingdom of Ulstead.
Full of Action
One thing that is surprising in this film is, the big battle at the end of the film between Maleficent vs. troops. Ulstead royal troops. Even without blood, the battle felt very fierce and full of action. A scene that can rarely be watched for a children’s film. The beautiful and handsome portrayal of the Dark Fey is also able to impress anyone with the hard work of the 118-minute Make-up Artist and Production Designer.
To realize the magical elements of this film, the Director Joachim Rning worked with a series of top figures in the field of film such as Henry Braham who participated as Cinematographer, Patrick Tatopoulos as Production Designer, Ellen Mirojnik as Costume Designer, and Paul Gooch as Make-Up up Designer.
Michelle Pfeiffer’s appearance as Queen Ingrith aka Philip’s mother could be the best casting decision. Witness Pfeffier vs. mouth fight Jolie at the dining table is more than enough to make anyone watching satisfied with their performance. Not to mention the final battle between the two. Epic!
