Maleficent and her goddaughter Aurora begin to question the complex family ties that bind them as they are pulled in different directions by impending nuptials, unexpected allies and dark new forces at play.
This is the second sequel to a Disney live-action adaptation of an animated film not to have its music score composed by the same composer as its predecessor (James Newton Howard scored the previous film while Geoff Zanelli took over for this film) after 102 Dalmatians (2000) (which was scored by David Newman).
What an awkward situation.
In the first movie, Maleficent cursed Aurora, not the spinning wheel spindle, and the curse ended with True Love's Kiss. Therefore, it's impossible for the spindle to be cursed in this movie.
On the international trailers, against a daytime sky, we see Maleficent's castle in the 2011 Disney logo. The camera zooms in and later tilts 90° counter-clockwise. The US, Canadian, and YouTube versions of the trailer still using the normal logo. Meanwhile on the actual film, as the 2011 Disney logo finishes, the camera moves in an upper right direction, panning away from the logo.
The film's IMAX release presented the film open-matte, at an aspect ratio of 1.90:1, meaning there was more picture information visible in the top and bottom of the frame than in normal theaters and on home video.
