If you know anything about me, you know that I love villains. In comics, in movies, in books, and well, in just about anything, I am all about the villains. In fact, I am planning a Disney Villains sleeve tattoo for my left arm (if you haven’t seen, my right is a Guardians of the Galaxy sleeve tattoo). Maleficent – in dragon form of course – is going to be one of the main villains featured.
Because she is one of my all time favorite villains, I was thrilled to see that she was going to be hitting the big screen again. Then when it was announced Maleficent 2 was being moved up, I was even more excited. This movie was supposed to come out in 202, and now it will be here in October 2019.
Honestly, I think it is a great fit for Maleficent: Mistress of Evil to come out right around Halloween – she is a creepy evil Disney villain after all, isn’t she?
My Trailer Reaction
This teaser trailer totally caught me by surprise. I wasn’t ready for it to drop – I thought we had at least another month. But when I heard it came out, I just had to watch it right away. Now, like I said, I love me some Maleficent. But honestly, I am not a fan of Angelina Jolie.
Why? I am not sure. But something about her has always bothered me. However, she kills it as Maleficent. I really have no complaints, and I think she is going to continue to rock it as an amazing villain in Mistress of Evil.
Plus, the cast that joins her! WOW! I am so excited to see Michelle Pfieffer (who I loved in Ant-Man and The Wasp). She is gorgeous, and insanely talented. Yea, I love her. Hyped to see her as part of this movie.
I also saw that Ed Skrein is joining the cast, which has me really happy. Why? I met him at the Captain America: Civil War premiere in LA and he is the NICEST guy! He was so sweet and down to Earth.
