So did you enjoy Maleficent Mistress of Evil, now streaming on Disney+ ? Here’s some trivia from the movie you may not have spotted.
1. 2 MCU alumni. Conall (Chiwetel Ejiofor) Doctor Strange. Queen Ingrith (Michelle Pfeiffer ) Antman and the Wasp
2. Future MCU alumni. Angelina Jolie – The Eternals.
3. Star Wars alumni. Lickspittle (Warwick Davis)
4. Chiwetel also appeared in the remake of The Lion King as Scar.
5. Prince Phillip now played by Harris Dickenson.
6. There’s a scene early on when Lickspittle short changed someone who brings him a fairy. This is almost identical to Reys scene in Star Wars The Force Awakens when she is short changed for what she brought in.
7. At the royal dinner there is a pigs head. Although it looks an awful lot like a certain warthog from The Lion King
8. Conall has a line saying “Remember who you are”. Spoken by Mufasa in The Lion King
9. Released 60 years after the original Sleeping Beauty.
10. First live action sequel based on a Disney Classic since Alice through the looking glass (2016)
11. When Conall makes his sacrifice for Maleficent it is in direct contrast to his character (scars) actions in The Lion King.
12. When we see Maleficent struck with the red arrow. She turns into dust. Alot like the dust in Avengers Infinity War and Endgame
13.The title is a bit misleading. As Maleficent doesn’t do anything remotley evil on this film.
14. When the fairies change the colour of Aurora’s dress, they also argue over the dress colour in the original animation.
