This version of Maleficent is very different from the classic Sleeping Beauty we all know from the Walt Disney movie. It certainly gives a very different perspective on the Maleficent character, played magnificently by Angelina Jolie. I admit I had to watch it twice to completely appreciate the story but this is a Disney classic which will endure.
How old should your child be before watching Maleficent? Of course it depends upon the individual child but I would say that the under 6 crowd aren’t really going to get the story and possibly be a bit bored by it. Do you agree?
As always I am interested in the extra features and it seems like the Blu Ray version of Maleficent is packed with lots to see:
Blu-ray Combo Pack
· From Fairy Tale to Feature Film – Reimagining Maleficent for a new generation
· Building An Epic Battle –Creating the clash between Maleficent and King Henry’s Forces
· Classic Couture – Examine Maleficent’s spellbinding head wraps and jewelry.
· Maleficent Revealed – Explore the layers of extraordinary special effects.
· Aurora: Becoming A Beauty – Elle Fanning reveals her lifelong love of Disney’s original animated classic.
· Deleted Scenes:
o “Stefan In King’s Chamber”
o “Pixie Idiots”
o “Diaval asks about the Curse”
o “Pixies Seek Asylum”
The DVD version really doesn’t have very much as it only includes:
· Aurora: Becoming A Beauty
The Maleficent movie will be released on November 4th. You can Pre Order Maleficent here.
