We got a second trailer for Disney's upcoming October 18th sequel, Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, & it definitely didn’t cement the hope I got from the first. Where it does still look like we’re gonna get a much more evilesque Maleficent this time around, my biggest gripe from the first, we got the reason for this in this trailer. Which if I'm reading into correctly it looks like once again there's worse at hand. I have a feeling Michelle Pfeiffer is going to have a much more manipulative evil to her than we see in the trailer. Not to mention the scene after getting wounded where Maleficent is rescued, finding her lost people. Which is what this will them turn into next with Aurora in the middle. Or a facsimile of. Anyway, I’ll pass. I’m gonna see it anyway obviously. Curiosity and all. I’m just definitely not as pumped as I was at first. As it looks like we'll be getting some of the same out of this oneas we did its predecessor. What a waste of great casting. What did y'all think though? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
I'll be honest, I'm not sure they could've released the greatest tease ever, & got me excited for this one. I've made no secret my distaste for the original Maleficent. I wanted a villain I never recieved. I will say this though, this teaser does seem like a step to righting the course. Even if I still feel the damage has already been done. I feel like if anything, this is going to show me the evil Maleficent I wanted from the jump, & just let me down that much more on what the original should have been. All the missed potential of a perfect casting choice used so wrong. Anyway, the official synopsis has Maleficent: Mistress of Evil as a fantasy adventure that picks up several years after the first, where audiences learned of the events that hardened the heart of Disney’s most notorious villain and drove her to curse a baby Princess Aurora. Tbos one continues to explore the complex relationship between the horned fairy and the soon to be Queen as they form new alliances and face new adversaries in their struggle to protect the moors and the magical creatures that reside within. Directed by Joachim Rønning from a story Linda Woolverton and a screenplay the same along with Micah Fitzerman-Blue & Noah Harpster. The film will be produced by Joe Roth, Angelina Jolie and Duncan Henderson with Matt Smith, Jeff Kirschenbaum and Michael Vieira serving as executive producers. Like I said before, personally I was let way too down by the first to he excited for this. What about y'all though? Is there anyone out there who's looking forward to this?

I've made no secret at all I have no love whatsoever for the live-action Maleficent. Loved Jolie's casting, absolutely hated everything they done with the film though. They turned Disney's most evil villain into, not even an anti-hero, but an actual misunderstood good guy. Couldn't stand it. So while this title gives me hope, I don't pit any weight on her ever taking up her actual dark persona as we seen in the original Sleeping Beauty. That all said cool title, cool poster, bit still just no hope for this one. It'll be titled Maleficent: Mistress of Evil. Which just doesn't quite make since after they went way out of their way to take all the villainy out of this character. Smae thing goes for the poster. Looks all cool & dark, but once again I'll believe it when I see it. We will find out earlier than we thought we would as they moved it up to this year. October 18th to be exact. I would say fingers crossed, bit I'm just not looking forward to this one. How bout y'all? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
