Disney will release the fantasy sequel Maleficent: Mistress of Evil through digital retailers Dec. 31, and on Blu-ray, DVD and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Jan. 14.
The sequel to 2014’s Maleficent, a live-action reimagining of the classic Sleeping Beauty, stars Angelina Jolie as Maleficent and Elle Fanning as her goddaughter, Princess Aurora.
Directed by Joachim Rønning, Maleficent: Mistress of Evil finds the relationship between Maleficent and Aurora challenged by a new alliance forged on the eve of the Aurora’s wedding to Prince Philip.
The cast also includes Chiwetel Ejiofor, Sam Riley, Ed Skrein, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple, Lesley Manville and Michelle Pfeiffer.
The film earned $111.6 million at the domestic box office and $480.6 million worldwide.
Blu-ray and digital bonus materials include two extended scenes; outtakes; the Bebe Rexha music video of “You Can’t Stop the Girl”; a Maleficent: Mistress of Evil VFX reel; and the featurettes “Origins of the Fey,” in which Jolie discusses Maleficent’s lore, her newly discovered origins and the diversity of the cast who portray the Fey; “Aurora’s Wedding,” in which Fanning gushes over Aurora’s fairytale wedding, and special guests give their best to the bride and groom; “If You Had Wings,” a glimpse of the elaborate visual effects that allow the Fey to take to the skies.
The digital version at select retailers will include an exclusive “Lickspittle” featurette, in which fantasy-film veteran Warwick Davis considers how every aspect of the film’s design inspired his tragic character.
