I am very familiar with Disney Princesses, and this new twist and turn on the classic Sleeping Beauty movie was awesome. I actually liked it a whole lot better than Sleeping Beauty. It was different and interesting to see villains side of the story.
I wasn’t the only one that enjoying the wonderful animation and whole plot sequence. After Maleficent hit theaters around the world it grossed more than $700 million in worldwide box office.

I enjoyed every part of the movie from beginning to end. After watching the movie it actually made me feel mad for the villain, and made me start thinking about all the villains in the other Disney movies, what’s their story? How did they become who they are? Disney should definitely get to work on those!
