Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, Reformatting the Mistress's Identity Self

Maleficent Mistress of Evil was released five years after the film Maleficent exploded in theaters. As is known, Maleficent that circulated in May 2014 was executed at a cost of 180 million US dollars (2.5 trillion rupiah) and posted gross income of 758 US dollars (around 10.6 trillion rupiah).

That is still added to the Oscar nomination bonus for Best Costume. To the public, Angelina Jolie hinted at the opportunity to make a sequel. This project was then announced in June 2016.

Two months before it was announced, Angelina Jolie signed a contract as the main actress and producer of Maleficent Mistress of Evil .

A number of changes occurred in the Maleficent Mistress of Evil project . The director's chair formerly occupied by Robert Stromberg is now entrusted to Joachim Ronning.

Joachim was previously known as co-director of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man Tell No Tales. The script continues to be handled by Linda Woolverton. Only, he was accompanied by Noah and Micah. Prince Phillip, who was played by Brenton Thwaites, moved hands to actor Harris Dickinson.

King John Collapsing
Maleficent 2014 ended happily when the Maleficent character found good in himself. Maleficent Mistress of Evil begins its story with the premise that humans tend to easily forget the kindness of others.

The Ulsteads led by King John (Robert Lindsay) and Queen Ingrith (Michelle Pfeiffer) consider Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) an evil witch who cursed Aurora's daughter (Elle Fanning) and raised her as a child. Aurora, now an adult and queen of the Moors, falls in love with Prince Phillip (Harris Dickinson).

One day Phillip proposed to Aurora. The Princess agreed to be married. The wedding party was held. Starting with a dinner at Ulstead Palace. Aurora, Maleficent, and his right hand, Diaval (Sam Riley) are present, meeting the King John's family. Honey, dinner ended tragically.

King John suddenly collapsed. Maleficent who from the beginning did not agree Aurora was accused of attacking King John with magic. Not accepting the King was bewitched, Ulstead fought Maleficent. In crisis conditions, Maleficent escaped through the palace window.

Reformat Maleficent
Maleficent Mistress of Evil is an attempt to reformat the magician's identity. As is known, Maleficent was born in 1959 by Marc Davis with the title of Mrs. of All Kinds of Crime. Half a century more crime attached to it.

On his 55th birthday, Maleficent was redefined through a live action film that explains why he became a witch. That there is a white heart in Maleficent, it is played neatly by Angelina Jolie. This moment marked the transformation of Maleficent from antagonist to protagonist.

Maleficent Mistress of Evil reflects why the witch is out of control and is a villain (again). The biggest homework of the script writing team is to reformat identity and regenerate the main character more fully. In order to achieve this, a number of supporting figures were made.

Aurora, the most reasonable choice. He has grown up, it's time to enter a new phase in life. Modification of the story more fun through the opposite of narrative techniques. Aurora moving forward, Maleficent pulled back.

Visual Three Countries
The manuscript team is aware that Maleficent's identity will not be complete if his background is still vague. Then we are treated to the genealogy of the Dark Fey species and where the actual position of Maleficent is in this nation. At this point, the sequel to Maleficent makes sense.

The problem of this film lies in the narrative that feels too long at the beginning and end of the story. Plus the antagonist is obvious from the start so the story is relatively easy to guess. Apparently, Maleficent who passed censorship for all ages wants to reach as many audiences as possible. 

Without explicit scenes of violence, blood flow, plus the end with a classic fairy tale approach makes us understand who is being targeted by this film. Credit should be given to the artistic and visual effects stylist who presents three countries in an aging world.

The Moors, Ulstead, and Dark Fey exile villages were built with specific characters. Moors with a distinctive panorama of fairyland. Versatile like heaven. Ulstead is a kingdom with a clear and firm governmental structure. While the Dark Fey Village is very unique.

Sweet Message
He combines jungles, caves and labyrinth-like spaces whose walls are made of millions of fibers or fibers. This artful set is framed by cinematography which exposes Angelina Jolie as a sexy angel of darkness. As a result, dark, semi-monochrome images are very aesthetic. Despite having manuscript problems, Maleficent Mistress of Evil was a success in building a climax that made the audience nervous. At least the climax phase was built by three critical points centered at Ulstead.

Not as level and level as Gemini Man, which has just been released, Maleficent's sequel has its own way to make the audience afraid of losing as well as being entertained. The center of this film, as the title suggests, is in Maleficent. But if you pay close attention and compare it with Maleficent 2014, you surely know that the inner bonds of Maleficent and Aurora go beyond what we think. This moment looks at the most crucial point and makes our eyes glaze over. It's about the love of two women, of two generations.

More than that, Maleficent Mistress of Evil sends messages of unity, tolerance, and politeness. False news about Maleficent in the past, anger that sparked horizontal conflict, and the topic of power ambition made Maleficent Mistress of Evil feel more complex than its predecessor.

But, wait ! Hoaks, horizontal conflicts, and power ambitions? Wow, how come I remember a country that has often been hit by hoaxes, demonstrations and power politics. Which country, hayo?
