Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil is a sequel to 2014 film Maleficent, which featured Sharlto Copley, Juno Temple, Imelda Staunton and Sam Riley along with Angelina and Elle. The Disney film was based on the classic fairy tale The Sleeping Beauty.
The first Maleficient film, starring Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning, Imelda Staunton and Juno Temple hit the screens in 2014. A dark fantasy film, it told the story of the much-misunderstood fairy in the popular tale Sleeping Beauty, and portrayed her troubled relationship with princess Aurora and the king of a kingdom, that is rooted in corruption.
The sequel takes place five years after the events of the first film, when Maleficent's life is overturned when Prince Philip proposes to princess Aurora and she accepts. Philip’s mother Ingrith intends to use the wedding to create a divide between humans and fairies forever. Maleficent and Aurora find themselves on different sides of the war. Disney thinks, the Bollywood actor Aishwarya Rai’s voice for the Hindi version can attracts much footfall.
