Things take an Avengers-like turn when Maleficent discovers she’s just one of a race of powerful faeries known as the Dark Fae. All-out war with the humans looks inevitable. But at the nub of this sequel is still the sometimes-strained mother–daughter relationship Maleficent has with Aurora. It’s not easy taking Mum over to meet your future in-laws when she might be tempted to waste their puny mortal frames with black magick. This revisionist feminist fairy tale is keeping it real.
