I’m still wondering why Disney is on this trend that the evil characters from our fairy tales are really just misunderstood. I’m not completely sure that I think the trend is good. Here we have Maleficent that is the nemesis of Sleeping Beauty. This film is dark, and I’m not sure that I can recommend it for young kids. Loving the traditional story of Sleeping Beauty, this film is one that doesn’t enhance the story. It provides a different side to the story, but does this story need to be told? Not really. The film does have great CGI, and it’s always interesting to see what makes a villain a villain, making this film worth a watch.
