    Looks interesting! I know a lot of people don't like the "live-action" remakes but I've enjoyed them so far. My only hang up is they're coming out more quickly than I can go see them!

      Is this a remake? I was unaware of a previous Maleficent movie if so. I'm pretty comfortable with stories told from another angle like this, but find the live-action-and-change-a-song-or-two...

      I happened to load this up right as my wife walked in and had her sit down to watch it with me. She's a big fan of Maleficent and the "bad guy" point of view movies. She's very excited about this one, naturally.

      Edit: Also love that this trailer is in deliciously widescreen. It's not often I get to completely fill my ultrawide when I make something go fullscreen.

        Not a remake, but it's a sequel to the original Malifecent movie from 5 years ago. That one's not directly a remake either, but kind of a live-action spinoff from the animated Sleeping Beauty.

        You're right. This isn't a remake but rather another angle on the sleeping beauty story (as far as I can tell). The remake movies you referred to I also think are pretty good.
