The first movie wasn’t very good, and while I aplreciated the attempt, Maleficent is one of the few villains who really shouldn’t have been portrayed as the good guy. Her name is a literal play on the word Malfeasance, which means evil intent, and in the original movie, she is onr of the most delightfully evil villains in the Disney universe. She litterally called upon the powers of hell before transforming into a dragon. The “remake”, dulls her down into a “sympathetic” villain while simultainiously villainising the king. Really, the first movie wasn’t any good, and the sequel isn’t looking to be any good either.
