I have told myself time and time again that I need to go back and rewatch Maleficent. I remember really enjoying it – but it has been so long since I have seen it. My daughters were super young and running around the house as I watched it, so I know I missed somethings. After this latest trailer for Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, it just skyrocketed to the top of my to do list.
If you can’t tell by that thumbnail, or by the video itself, I am HYPED for this movie. I am a huge fan of Disney villains – with Maleficent being one of my all time faves. Honestly, I have never been a huge Angelina Jolie fan, but she KILLS it as this character. I think she was born to play her.
I am kind of loving where this story seems to be going. Maleficent is wanting to be a mother to Aurora, of course, and is getting a bit too protective. Michelle Pfeiffer, is totally pushing her buttons though, and Maleficent retaliates.
But then – we see a whole ton of few species (fairy, I guess?). Like a ton. That are just like her. What is happening here?! I am SO EXCITED about that. I cannot wait to learn more about them.
Will they be evil? Good? A combination? Will they befriend Maleficent, and then betray her? The possibilities are endless, and my mind is spinning with ideas!
I mean, I know this is not Groot. But how amazing would it be if it was? If you know anything about me, you know I love the Guardians of the Galaxy (I mean, I have them tattooed on me). So any crazy tree creature that I see is immediately Groot in my head. And this one just happened to have a tiny little creature perched on his shoulder (not a raccoon though, unfortunately).
