The film is a remake of a Disney cartoon about sleeping beauty. In which Malificenta is shown as an evil sorceress who cursed the little princess on an eternal dream as soon as she turns 16 years old. But what if the story isn't about an evil witch? Maleficent 3 reveals an alternative reality, history as old as the world.
Next door to the kingdom of King Henry, spread out a fabulous forest filled with outlandish creatures, called the "Fluffy Marshes". Young Maleficent is the protector of the forest and a good fairy. Her only weakness is iron. One of the beautiful days, a little fairy gets to know a human boy named Stefan. Despite the great differences, a strong friendship ensued between them, over time turning into something more. Stefan was the only one who had known her weakness.
The older they got, the more they moved away from each other. On the day of the twentieth anniversary of the fairy, the king with his army attacks the fabulous forest, but Maleficent, with the help of forest creatures, manages to win and mortally injure the king.
The king, who is at death, issues a decree stating: "Whoever brings the head of a witch will receive my daughter as a wife and become king."
Stefan, who has not seen Maleficent for a long time, comes to warn her of the danger. Rubbing into trust, he euthanizes her and tries to kill her. Unable to take her life, he deprives her of her wings. Which in the future will provide the king as evidence of murder, marry the princess, and become the king.
Maleficent wakes up with terrible pain of losing part of herself and betrayal. Upon learning that Stephen had a daughter, she appears at the christening and curses her. If only she could know that this girl would become more important to her than anyone else. Melt the ice of her heart and teach her to love again. But how to reverse the time and remove the spell? After all, only a kiss of true love can destroy it.
Disputes related to the premiere of the third part will come out to this day. Initially, there was information that the sequel will be released in May 2020. Later there was information that we will see a new part no earlier than the fall of 2021. But there is still no exact release date.
The plot, as well as the release date, is kept secret. But we know for sure that the main roles will remain with Jolie and Fanning.
Having received such good box office and reviews, Maleficent film deserves to continue.
