Maleficent Mistress of Evil brings more to the story line now that Aurora is older and ready to marry her prince.  Maleficent foreshadows what is to come with a great line, "love doesn't always end well."  The path to marriage doesn't run smooth for Aurora.  

We learn more about where Maleficent's dark fae people come from and the struggles between them and humans, mostly based upon prejudices and fear.  {There are some qualities of the fae that reminded me of Avatar.}  We also see Aurora's struggle between the two worlds that she loves.

There are some intense scenes and fighting in the film that gives it the PG rating.   It wasn't too intense or scary for my five year old.

The acting was superb and the film has great visual effects.  I really enjoyed seeing Michelle Pfeiffer in her role as Queen Ingrith.

The film shows how there are many layers to people; light and dark, good and bad.  My girls and I had some good conversations about accepting peoples' differences and trying to get along even when you don't see eye to eye.  We also talked about how wars happen when people can't work out their differences and the effects of war (death and destruction).

Maleficent Mistress of Evil is a very enjoyable sequel that may just continue with a third movie as they left the door open.
