Maleficent: Mistress of Evil exhilarates audiences

Morgan Montgomery, Reporter

“Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” came out October 18. It was easy to follow and had very good acting and the casting was accurate.

Although Prince Phillip was played by a different person, Harris Dickinson portrayed Prince Phillip as a prince who is full of love for Aurora and he only cares about Aurora and he cared about having peace between the moors and the humans better than Brenton Thwaites. Aurora, played by Elle Fanning, was perfectly cast, she’s smart and innocent but also knows the problems and also tries to help unite the two kingdoms. Angelina Jolie played Maleficent perfectly, she was scary, but sweet. There was a plot twist a couple times that made you second guess everything you have seen in either of the movies. 

The plot was very very thrilling and kept the audience on the edge of the seat in anticipation of what was going to happen next. There were some emotional parts, but they weren’t terrible. There were some parts that were confusing, but overall it was easy to interpret and understand. I liked the “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” more than I liked the first “Maleficent”, you learn more about the Moors and the feud between the Moors and the human. 

The costumes were very cool for all of the Moors. All of Aurora’s outfits at the beginning show her innocence and her love of nature, she wears flowers in her hair and wears very floral dresses and accessories. Maleficent’s costumes are intimidating, matching her intimidating physique. 

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil was overall a very good movie and I highly recommend watching it.
