MALEFICENT: MISTRESS OF EVIL is a wonderful sequel to MALEFICENT which unfortunately was besieged by bad trailers promoting it. Angelina Jolie steals the show again as Maleficent while the rest of the actors do their best to fulfill their roles (with only Michelle Pfeiffer being on equal level with Jolie. We learn more about the origins of Maleficent race and their struggles while you have a hate mongering Queen (Pfieffer) who wants to get rid of all those magical creatures (while pretending to be a loving mother-in-law to be to Aurora (Elle Fanning)). The special effects are wonderful, but they are outstanding when they are digital set extensions to help immerse the viewer in the world of the movie.

SPECIAL FEATURES:
Three featurettes that have cast and crew interviews mixed with clips from the sequel and behind-the-scenes footage. See how involved Angelina jolie is in the production of the movie
ORIGINS OF THE FEY- Angelina Jolie and others talk about the Dark Fey characters for the sequel
AURORA'S WEDDING- a tongue in cheek behind-the-scenes look at the wedding scene in the movie
IF YOU HAD WINGS takes a behind-the-scenes look at the careful planning for actors who would have wings added in post-production via VFX

MALEFICENT: MISTRESS OF EVIL VFX Reel shows how much VFX is involved in many of the scenes of the movie like digital extensions for sets and digital wings
Outtakes reel that is basically a gag reel

Two Extended Scenes (Queen Comforts Aurora, Philip and Aurora Dance)
Bebe Rexha music video for "You Can't Stop the Girl"

Digital copy

FINAL ANALYSIS: MALEFICENT: MISTRESS OF THE DARK is an excellent and entertaining sequel. I do wish the blu-ray had more extensive extras instead of the usual Disney promo fluff.
