Disney’s Maleficent is available on Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Combo pack as of November 4! I received an early copy of Maleficent on disk as part of the Disney #Maleficent | #Sleeping Beauty | #DisneyInHomeEvent | #VeryBadDayEvent press trip. Travel, accommodations, and products for review were provided by Disney, but all opinions are my own. Photos are courtesy of Disney.
Before I left for my September press trip with Disney, I was sent a very-early copy of Maleficent on DVD to screen. The kids and I were excited to see the movie again, but we were especially excited to share the movie with my husband, who hadn’t seen it in theaters with us. I was tickled when it was my 13-year-old son who was Maleficent’s biggest fan and proceeded to convince his Dad that this was NOT your average princess movie. It was exciting, full of adventure and really good acting.
We planned a family movie night and watched Maleficent together….and Dad was even more impressed with the movie than he expected.
This past weekend, my mother-in-law has been in town, and when she asked what new movies we had that she probably hadn’t seen (she catches up on family movies whenever she’s at our house), the first movie suggested was Maleficent. Not a single person complained that we had seen it too many times. This is a movie that the entire family enjoys, not just once but over and over again.
MALEFICENT is a “wickedly fun twist on the Disney classic ‘Sleeping Beauty.'” I love how Disney stayed true to the Sleeping Beauty story we grew up with, while taking it deeper and exploring the characters – and the WHYs – more. 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.
Disney’s most iconic villain “MALEFICENT” comes to life for all to own on November 4, 2014. Starring Academy Award®-winning actress Angelina Jolie (Best Supporting Actress, “Girl, Interrupted,” 2000) as Maleficent, and Elle Fanning as Aurora, Maleficent will be available on Disney Blu-ray Combo Pack, Digital HD, Disney Movies Anywhere, and On-Demand platforms.
