Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post, but I did receive a copy of the movie Maleficent. Opinions expressed here are my own.
Today’s the day: Maleficent has been released on Blu-ray and DVD! I’m so excited about this release, this was my favorite summer movie, and now I can see it over and over!
Explore the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain in this wickedly fun twist on the classic “Sleeping Beauty.” In an unforgiving mood after a neighboring kingdom threatens her forest, Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) places an irrevocable curse on the king’s newborn daughter, the Princess Aurora. But as the child grows, Maleficent finds herself becoming fond of the girl. And as the conflict between the two realms intensifies, Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land. Journey beyond the fairy tale in this soaring adventure that is “visually arresting, brilliantly designed” (Andrew Barker, Variety).

I was thrilled to see all the behind the scenes features. I’m always fascinated by the work that goes on behind the scenes in films. I loved learning how they made Angelina Jolie “fly” and the effects necessary for the epic battle scene between the King and his army and the protectors of The Moors. I’m also a big fan of Deleted Scenes, and there are quite a few to enjoy in the Blu-ray Combo Pack.
