Sigh, we just HAD to get a sequel to Maleficent, huh? Yes, Joachim Rønning is directing now, but Linda Woolverton is still involved with the screenplay. Even based on the trailers, this film doesn’t seem any better than its predecessor. Oh well, let’s get this over with. Here’s my review of Maleficent: Mistress of Evil!

Yes, I know that this isn’t a live-action film at all (barring like one shot in the beginning of the film), but Disney is treating this like their live-action remakes and I know many of you would like to see how I rank it compared to the other live-action remakes.

It’s also my blog and I can do what I want!

When Disney hit gold with their 2016 live-action remake of The Jungle Book, directed by Jon Favreau, it only made sense for them to try to do it again with another animal-themed film. What better one than the film considered by many to be their magnum opus, The Lion King?

Before I dive into the review, I’d like to point out that it’s nigh impossible to watch this film without comparing it to the original! As the story is literally the same overall, I’ll try to point out the changes that were made in this remake. With that in mind, be prepared!

Ugh, don’t get me started on that!

And remember, SPOILERS AHEAD!
