Maleficent just crossed the $700 million box office mark and clearly there are millions of people who are just a little enamored of the idea of Angelina Jolie as the villain from Sleeping Beauty. Those fans will be thrilled to hear that Disney has announced its plans to bring Maleficent home on DVD, Blu-Ray and digital HD.
Jolie’s origins story on the Sleeping Beauty villain lands on home video November 4 and brings along hours of bonus features that take viewers on an in-depth journey of Maleficent and her rise from magical child to curse-wielding and love-spurned woman.
As you can tell from our Maleficent review, we were just slightly crazy about the film and could not be more excited that the flick has become Jolie’s highest grossing movie of her career. She was born to be Maleficent and she commands this film on every frame.
The cast and crew of Maleficent explore how the classic Sleeping Beauty yarn was re-imagined as a live-action spectacle in From Fairy Tale to Feature Film, the bonus feature that immediately tops our list of must-sees on the Maleficent DVD and Blu-Ray.
