A vindictive fairy curses an infant princess only to realise the child may be the only one who can restore peace in Maleficent, out now at the Showcase in Bargeddie.

The untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic ‘Sleeping Beauty’.

Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army of humans threatens the harmony of the land.

Maleficent rises to be the land’s fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal - an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone.

Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the king of the humans and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora.

As the child grows, Maleficent realises that Aurora (Elle Fanning) holds the key to peace in the kingdom - and to Maleficent’s true happiness as well.

Maleficent is rated PG and runs 97 minutes.
