Disney has announced via the Disney+ app that the live-action retelling of Sleeping Beauty, ‘Malefiecent’, is returning to Disney+ in the United States on Friday 1st October.

The film tells the story of a beautiful young woman of pure heart, Maleficent, played by Angelina Jolie, who has an idyllic life in a forest kingdom. When an invading army threatens the land, Maleficent rises up to become its fiercest protector. However, a terrible betrayal hardens her heart and twists her into a creature bent on revenge. She engages in an epic battle with the invading king’s successor, then curses his newborn daughter, Aurora — realizing only later that the child holds the key to peace in the kingdom.

The film has previously been added onto Disney+, but was removed shortly afterwards due to pre-existing contracts that had been made before Disney+ existed.  Hopefully, this time the film won’t be removed so quickly as last time.


‘Maleficent’ is already available on Disney+ in most countries.

Are you looking forward to the return of ‘Maleficent’? on Disney+?
