Loved the first but haven’t had a chance to watch the second Maleficent movie yet? Now is your chance. Maleficent: Mistress of Evil is on Disney Plus tonight.
If you’ve been waiting (im)patiently for Maleficient: Mistress of Evil, it’s paying off. The sequel to the 2014 Angelina Jolie movie is heading to Disney Plus tonight.
Those on the east coast will get the chance to watch Maleficent 2 at 6 a.m. on Disney Plus. That’s great for those who are three hours behind. It will drop at 3 a.m. PT. And I’m sure you can work out the other time zones.
It was only a matter of time a sequel would come after the success of the first movie. The 2014 movie gave us Maleficient’s side of the Sleeping Beauty story. It was time to find out how she’d become one of Aurora’s godparents only to end up as the wicked witch that everyone was scared of.
During Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, history is doomed to repeat itself. Aurora’s wedding to Prince Phillip is coming up, but it’s not all love and sunshine. Prince Phillip’s mother is hellbent on destroying the land of the fairies. Naturally, Maleficent isn’t about to let that happen. That’s her land.
Maleficent joins a group of outcasts and season warriors together to take down the queen and her army. The problem is this makes her look like the villain that everyone seems to think she is.
While the 2019 movie was a flop with critics, it was praised widely by audiences. There’s no doubt that this is a perfect option for family movie night this weekend.
This is certainly a great weekend for Elle Fanning fans. Not only will you get to watch her as Princess Aurora in Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, but she’s also in The Great, which is on Hulu tonight. Despite being royalty in both, you’ll see two very different sides of her acting skills.
