A fantasy adventure that takes place several years after the first film, through which the public discovered which events hardened the heart of Disney’s most famous villain and made him curse Princess Aurora. “Malevolent II” continues to explore the complex relationship between the horned fairy and the future queen, forming new alliances and facing new opponents in the struggle to protect the Moors and the magical creatures that live there.
