                  I can't believe disney released this at last minute, rather than that book adaptation everyone's hated on.

                      The scene where there is a man with a flower, could it have something to do with belle?

                        In my opinion, this movie looks like it's going to be awful.

                          Not to be a Negative Nancy

                          But I think this movie is going to flop

                          3 reasons

                          .Remake fatigue

                          . Last time at Disney remake had a sequel (Alice Through the Looking Glass) it flop

                          . Mary Poppins returns came out the same week as Aquaman, Aquaman Beat It

                          Dumbo came out a week before Shazam, Shazam beat Dumbo

                          Now this time the Joker comes out a week before Maleficent and let's face it the Joker has a bigger fan base then Aquaman or Shazam.

                          And the fact that no one really asked for Maleficent 2 especially with the lack of respect it showed for the original a lot of people I know did not like the first one.

                            @Dave Lee Down Under I Agree,

                            I was thinking the Remake fatigue would come after Aladdin and Lion King which is still my most anticipated movie

                            The best live action remake for Disney that is to me is A hundred and one Dalmatians 1996 and the Jungle Book 2016 those two I think had the best of something new and faithful at the same time.

                            Speaking of the 1996 101 Dalmatian and also the other 1994 Jungle Book please tell me they will be on the streaming service because they are very expensive on DVD I wish Disney would released them on DVD and Blu-ray.

                            Here's my take:

                            I don't think there's any remake fatigue at all. Most of them have been doing well. I predict Lion King will take at least a billion. Aladdin will do well, but maybe not _as_ well.

                            I think Alice did poorly because it wasn't a great film, and honestly, neither was the first.

                            Mary Poppins was based on a 55 year old property, which I don't think is as "classic" to modern generations as it once was. Likewise, Dumbo is an almost 80 year old property that I don't think anyone really cares about any more. There wasn't any real hype behind them.

                            I agree that Joker will whipe the floor with Maleficent. I don't think it will flop, but don't think it will do incredibly well.

                            But that's just the thing. Everyone moans about the Disney remakes for "not doing anything new" but then every time one of them tries to do something new they get called out for "lack of respect". I just don't know what people want these days.

                            Yep, predicted it a while back. They'll release individually in the US on the same day as Endgame too, guaranteed.

                          The "mistress of evil" will not be Maleficent, it will be Michelle pfeifer

                            Cedric Mathew Hudson i think the same too.. I’ve seen an old version of sleeping beauty from Charles Perrault that the queen (whom was Philip’s mother) was an ogre and tried to eat Aurora and her children. After seeing this trailer, it made me think that the queen might be the evil one here, not the maleficent. She tried to protect Aurora but i think it lead to a misunderstanding for everyone including Aurora that’s why there is a plot twist here. If u hear the line which maleficent said: ‘There are many who prey on the innocent. I’am sure ur kind would agree’ can be a message that the queen itself might have an evil plan for Aurora (the innocent one) or dark secret idk

                            anyway its just my opinion 😀

                            Thank you! Yep, saw that a few days ago. I guarantee there'll be steels for all 3, as well as individual releases in the US as well.

                          The trailer does look intriguing, for a moment I imagined Maleficent would simply revert to a villain. But perhaps there is more than meets the eye here. I am a fan of redemption so I want some good to remain within Maleficent.
                          Perhaps rather than being a true villain she will PLAY the role of the villains if its necessary.

                            If there is a 3rd Maleficent film, I’d like it to be about Aurora and Phillip’s twin children from the original story and that film being based on the 2nd half of Charles Perrault’s version, about an ogre from Maleficent’s kingdom trying to kidnap them. Or maybe the ogre could be Phillip’s maternal grandmother.

                              In the "original" version of the Sleeping Beauty story the Prince's mother was an ogress with an appetite for human flesh. Maybe Michelle Pfeiffer's character will turn out to be an ogress.

                              this sleeping beauty live action serial of films is starting to be promising
                              jolie seems to be continuing to pull off a ok job as malificent, though sometimes, she probably could sometimes be seen more on the good level, rather than the bad , in far better roles that people admire rather than turn away from
                              so i am kinda hoping that jolie kinda keeps that softened tone to her malificent character so that she has a moral compus

                                I didn't like MALEFICENT and that they made gave her a softer side. I like her being a villain. Probably not going to see this one.

                                    I think I’m pretty much positive that the dragon will come back and Philip will fight with it and Aurora will try to save maleficent
