Action and Adventure, Family, Romance, Science Fiction and Fantasy




With her pointed headdress and imposing staff, the wicked fairy Maleficent is one of Disney’s most iconic and sinister villains. This modern retelling takes the animated classic Sleeping Beauty as a starting point to tell the story of how a once-good fairy became the Mistress of All Evil. The tale of Maleficent’s betrayal, the loss of her wings, and her curse on Princess Aurora adds a darker tone to the story so expect dramatic battles and incredible new creatures alongside the familiar fairy tale fantasy.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
