Disney's Maleficent: Mistress of Evil will be in cinemas across the UAE from Thursday October 17.

There are so many new family-friendly films hitting the cinemas this month and next.

The sequel to Maleficent, which sees Angelina Jolie reprise her role as the evil fairy, picks up several years after the original Disney blockbuster, in which we learned about the events that hardened the heart of the villainess and drove her to curse a baby Princess Aurora.

The film continues to explore the complex relationship between the horned fairy and Princess Aurora (Elle Fanning) as they begin to question the complex family ties that bind them together.

As the young princess prepares for her nuptials (to Prince Phillip played by Harris Dickinson) the unlikely pair are pulled in different directions by unexpected allies and dark new forces at play as they struggle to protect the moors and the magical creatures that live there.

While the dashing prince sees his marriage to Aurora as a way to unite humans and fairies, his evil, scheming mother, Queen Ingrith (Michelle Pfeiffer) has an altogether different take on the situation and hopes to keep the two divided forever.

Finding themselves on opposing sides during a Great War, the duo question whether they can really, truly ever be family.
